A well-known restaurant and bar in the South End of Boston is going to be closing its doors, though the restaurant group that operates it will be opening a new spot within its space.
According to a post from BosGuy, Union Bar & Grille on Washington Street is shutting down on January 1, 2015, with the Aquitaine Group looking to replace it with a new dining spot that has a different name. The article says that the restaurant group is planning to open the as-of-yet unnamed place in April, though the person we talked to at Union Bar & Grille today indicated that it could be May rather than April.
Union Bar & Grille, which has been in business for 11 years, is a casual upscale dining and drinking spot that mainly features New American fare. Other places that are run by the Aquitaine Group include Cinquecento, Aquitaine, Metropolis Cafe, and Gaslight--all of which are in Boston's South End--as well as Aquitaine at The Street in Chestnut Hill and Aquitaine at Legacy Place in Dedham.
The address for the soon-to-close Union Bar & Grille (and upcoming new restaurant) is 1357 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02118.
