Bina Osteria and Bina Alimentari in Boston Have Closed; Sip and Avery Provision Are Replacing Them
An Italian restaurant and gourmet food shop in downtown Boston have closed, and the folks behind several local dining and drinking establishments are going to be opening a new eatery and market/shop in their place.
A poster on the Chowhound site mentioned yesterday that Bina Osteria and Bina Alimentari on Washington Street have shuttered, with a check on their website indicating that it is no longer working. Coinciding with this is the fact that the Legendary Restaurant Group (Andiamo, Max and Dylan's, Papagayo Mexican Kitchen and Bar, Scollay Square, Tavern on the Water) is opening a wine bar called Sip and a market/shop called Avery Provision Co., both of which will be located on Washington Street. The Chowhound poster stated that a sign for Sip is now displayed at the site of the now-closed Bina, so it can be assumed that Sip will be moving into the Bina Osteria space while Avery Provision Co. will move into the Bina Alimentari spot.
[May 18 update: A bit more information on Sip and Avery Provision Co.: Grub Street Boston mentions that Sip will feature an eclectic menu that includes sushi, steak, a raw bar, flatbread, and more, along with 30 wines offered by the half glass and full glass and 150 options for bottles. (The eatery will also have a 70-seat patio.) Avery will be a market that is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it will offer a variety of to-go items, including salads, sushi, Italian specialties, subs, and cold cuts. Both could be open by mid-June, according to Grub Street.]
[June 20 update: Grub Street Boston reports that Sip will open in mid-to-late July.]
[July 9 update: UrbanDaddy mentions that Avery Provision Co. is now officially open.]
[July 23 update: Eater Boston is reporting that Sip is now open.]
Bina Osteria and Bina Alimentari first opened in the fall of 2008.
The address for Sip will likely be 581 Washington Street while the address for Avery Provision Co. will probably be 571 Washington Street. More information on both can be found at http://www.legendaryrg.com/
