Family owned B3 Restaurant Bar The newest Kingston Collection restaurant

Game-watching bar, main dining room for a family dinner, function room for special occasions, outdoor patio for nice days, and pizza oven.

B3 Restaurant & Bar opened in March in the Kingston Collection and the owners of 3 Brothers, 3 Brothers Bar & Grill in Hannover, are ready to make their mark.

“We wanted to have something that would work for everyone, and Hanover became that place,” said Melsey Shingo, one of the owners. “Kingston doesn’t have many restaurants, and when we found out, we wanted to bring the same vibe and make it a city hangout.”

Xhengo said he and his two brothers, Edison and Vladmir Xhengo, are known for their roast beef sandwiches from their previous business, Brother’s Roast Beef and Pizza. Their goal was to bring a similar type of food to B3 Restaurant & Bar, but to make it interesting.

The listings for Kingston and Hanover are the same. He describes her as a “quick casual”.

Steak tips, chicken kabobs, Greek salad, and calzones were pulled from Brother’s Roast Beef and Pizza. B3 Restaurant & Bar has six salads and 15 appetizers. Melsey Shingo said steak and cheese rolls and stir-fry cauliflower are popular choices.

The menu features sandwiches, burgers, flatbreads, and three types of steak: roast sirloin, French rib and skirt. Each comes with a choice of two sides and is cooked in a wood-fired grill.

Weymouth-based chef Thommy Nieto, who has worked in the industry for 13 years and attended Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Cambridge, said the steaks come with a mushroom sauce made from shiitake mushrooms and are infused with the flavor of porcini mushrooms.

He works with seafood a lot and says he loves the pasta options, all topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Melsey Shingo said grilled salmon and steak are his best-selling items. Some items will be swapped out in spring and winter to suit the feel of the seasons.

“Everyone loves (pizza),” Xhengo said. “It was a great hit.”

The breakfast menu is served from 11 AM to 1 PM on weekends. Sweets are also made at home.

The bar offers 20 taps. Beer options include local breweries, such as Untold Brewery in Scituate and Widowmaker Brewery in Braintree. The bar also serves signature cocktails and a variety of wines.

“It’s a great atmosphere,” Xhengo said. “I see it in Hanover, people come in at five just to get a seat at the bar, so it’s starting to happen here.”

Guests can look forward to dining on the patio. Xhengo said it will work with the city to add live music. In the end, they also hope to have a live cooking show in the events room that used to be the studio.

“I always tell my people here that customers come to have a good time, and we have to make sure we give them that,” Xhengo said.

Get to know the brothers

Xhengo and his siblings lived in Albania and Greece before moving to the United States in 1998. Melsi Xhengo was twenty years old at the time. When he arrived he didn’t know how to speak English. He began working at Nick’s Place in Lexington, where he learned restaurant business.

In 2000, the trio opened Brother’s Roast Beef and Pizza. They had seven locations simultaneously, the first in Malden, followed by Quincy, Weymouth, Abington, Brooklyn, Dedham and Kingston. The establishments have since been sold to family and friends.

The 3 Brothers bar & Grill opened in Hanover in 2018. He said his restaurants in Hanover and Kingston were inspired by Alba in Quincy. At that time, the brothers lived on the North Shore and moved to Hanover, where Melsey Shingo noticed the lack of restaurants.

“We bought this building on Washington Street (in Hanover). It was a vacant building at the time, so we demolished it, put in a whole new building, and that’s how we started Brazzers Grill,” he said.

After the mall owners reached out to the brothers, who were already looking for a second location, they made the leap in Kingston. Bar Rustic has been replaced by B3 Restaurant and Bar.

Melsi Xhengo said it was a slow start, although they are starting to see regular customers visit several times a week and busy Friday and Saturday nights.

“It will take some time, but it will become an attraction for people to come in, have a drink, and hang out,” Xhengo said.
