About Us

Northern Spy is a new New England family restaurant centered around a wood-fired hearth in Canton, Massachusetts. Offering regional specialties and sourcing from the best local farmers and artisans, Northern Spy aims to raise high the comforting traditions of past generations. 

Operations begin with a focused menu from our scratch kitchen, along with craft cocktails and delicious wine for safe and simple in person dining or take-out. 

LOCATION: Early American patriot Paul Revere founded the Revere Copper Company in Canton, Massachusetts in 1801. Today, settled along the Neponset River, Northern Spy inherits Revere’s striking brick Rolling Copper Mill. For more than two years, the site has been meticulously crafted with historic materials, a custom French kitchen from Boston’s legendary L’Espalier restaurant, and new copper roof from the current Revere Copper Products Company now operating in Rome, New York. 

The restaurant is nested at the center of the larger Paul Revere Heritage site, a mixed use space that will contain a historical museum, housing, and a rolling town green. Northern Spy features an open sectional dining room, sprawling garden patio, a large separate full bar, and private rooms both big and small for weddings, holiday parties, and feasts galore.
