Jamie Bissonnette Launches New Group with Local Partners

Award winning chef Jamie Bissonnette (formerly of Toro, Coppa, Little Donkey & Faccia a Faccia) will be partnering with beverage guru Andy Cartin and restaurateur Babak Bina (of BINA Hospitality, which currently includes Bin 26, jm Curley, Bogie’s Place and the Wig Shop) to launch BCB3, a new hospitality group set to open a trio of concepts in Boston this spring.

With more than eighty years of talent among them, the partners will be taking their cues from their personal interests and professional triumphs, as well as their shared love of travel and music, to create restaurants and bars with exceptional food and drink.

“We’re intentionally leading off BCB3 by introducing passion projects to Boston,” says Bissonnette. “Between my history in the kitchen, Andy’s inventive work in the beverage space and Babak’s passion for restaurant design and development, we’ve put a lot of energy and excitement into ideating new spaces that showcase who we are as both individuals and as a collective. We’re looking forward to bringing bold and spirited bar and restaurant concepts to the heart of Boston together in 2024.”

The group’s first three concepts, opening in March at 11 Temple Place in Downtown Crossing, include a modern Korean restaurant 소맥 (Somaek), a cocktail-driven listening bar called Temple Records and an underground sushi den Sushi @ Temple Records. They’ve got other projects in the works for later in the year ‘though so stay tuned for more info.
