Openings, closings, and more in the south suburbs
Brick and Beam Tavern has opened in Quincy. The restaurant and bar, which opened July 5, took over the former Villa Rosa, an Italian restaurant, which occupied the space at 705 Adams St. for more than 60 years. “We’re a local, family-friendly neighborhood establishment,” said owner and general manager Breton Kelly. “People can come in with their family or with their buddies. There’s something for everybody on the menu.” The tavern offers traditional comfort pub fare, including burgers, pizzas, chicken parm, and, of course, cocktails.
Restaurant chain 110 Grill recently opened its newest location in Braintree. The modern American restaurant chain, based in Westford, celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting on July 11. It serves lunch and dinner featuring American cuisine, including seafood, sandwiches and burgers, and more.
“We are conveniently located right off the highway,” said Alicia Puputti, the company’s marketing director. “A hundred percent of our core lunch and dinner menu is available gluten-free. We have monthly and seasonal specials.”
The Braintree location, the eighth in the chain, seats 180 inside and 40 more on the patio. 110 Grill has four other locations in Massachusetts and two in New Hampshire, and plans to expand with seven more across New England. 110 Grill Braintree is located at 170 Forbes Road.
Sintra , a restaurant in Braintree, announced in late June it would close after 14 years.

Country Marketplace , a furniture and home goods store, closed its Braintree location in late June. “Thank you all for 8 wonderful years,” the company announced on its Facebook page. “We bid a fond farewell to our amazing customers, friends and co-workers at the South Shore Plaza.” The company recently consolidated its stores into its location at Kingston Collection.
Theory Wellness , a medical marijuana dispensary, opened in Bridgewater at 1050 Elm St. on July 7. It is the state’s 12th medical marijuana company, said chief executive Brandon Pollock. “We focus on treating symptoms,” Pollock said. “The number one symptom that we treat is chronic pain. We are a direct substitute for opioid medication.”
