Northern Spy Restaurant


Now under construction: The historic structure, previously Paul Revere's copper rolling mill, is in the process of being restored as part of the Paul Revere Heritage site, in Canton MA. This amazing brick and timber truss structure will provide a rich space for its new occupants. The project includes a large dining room and bar with an open wood hearth at the center, as well as exhibition and function space on the open second level. Steeped in history and tradition, this gathering space will provide references to the past and present, in both atmosphere and fare.

Northern Spy Restaurant, from the Owners of Loyal Nine in Cambridge, will serve classic New England fare from the wood fired hearth. For more about the restaurant check out the publications below:

The Patch

This photo, compliments of the Paul Revere Heritage site, shows the rolling mill structure at an early stage of the project. The brick and timber trusses have since been restored, along with a beautiful new copper roof, provided by Paul Revere Copper company.

while maintaining a glimpse to its industrial past. The grounds of the site

will also include relics from the industrial site, interlaced with outdoor dining and public gathering park space.




Clerestory (currently above scaffolding) in the restored timber truss structure with will bring light into the function room at the upper level. Floor openings will allow the light to spill into the dining and bar areas below.

The centrally located wood fired hearth will serve the kitchen as the primary cooking suite, as well as providing ambiance that complements the open kitchen and dining areas.
