From Zagat's:

they're returning to Boston to open Townsman in late 2014. Details are slim, but the spot is slated to inhabit the new Radian building at 120 Kingston Street, neighboring Chinatown. A release describes its identity as "native to place," so we can probably expect more Farmstead-style New England cuisine.
