Market at W Boston Is Closing
A high-end restaurant in downtown Boston that features dishes developed by a three-star Michelin chef is closing.
An article from Zagat confirms what A Thought For Food mentioned to us on Friday, that Market at W Boston on Stuart Street in the Theatre District will shutter at the end of the year. The post also says that an announcement on what might go into the space will come at some point and that the W Lounge within the hotel will remain open, though it will received some type of a "refresh" in 2014. The restaurant first opened in October of 2009, with Jean-Georges Vongerichten and the New York-based Culinary Concepts Hospitality Group behind it.
As mentioned earlier, Zagat also mentions that Starwood, which is behind the W Hotel, also has changes in store for its nearby Westin Copley Place Hotel--it will close the 30-year-old Turner Fisheries within the hotel later this month.
Market at W Boston, which is an elegant but casual spot that features an eclectic mix of French, Italian and Asian-influenced dishes, is one of a number of restaurants that Jean-Georges Vongerichten has helped develop, with others (including both his own and collaborations with Culinary Concepts) being in New York, Chicago, London, Paris, Shanghai, and many other locations. His website can be found at http://www.jean-georges.com/
The address for the soon-to-close Market (and the W Boston) is 100 Stuart Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
[December 10 update: A side note--Eater National mentions (via The New Potato) that Jean-Georges Vongerichten has announced he is planning to open a new restaurant in New York City in the spring of 2014, with the place being a vegetarian spot. The article also mentions that he is looking to open a taco stand in NYC called Cocina Tacos as well.]
[December 23 update: A phone call placed to the W Boston indicates that Market has officially closed, though it sounds like plans are definitely in the works for a new restaurant to open in the space in 2014.]
