Audubon Circle in Boston Is Becoming Audubon; Trina's Starlite Team Behind the New Place
A popular restaurant and bar in the Fenway section of Boston has been taken over by the folks behind another dining and drinking spot in Somerville and is reopening with a slightly different name.
Eater Boston is reporting that the team behind Trina's Starlite Lounge/Parlor Sports on the edge of Inman Square is replacing Audubon Circle with a new place simply called "Audubon," with an expected opening sometime this spring. The article mentions that the restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner and will also have a Sunday brunch, with the new owners saying that "the team hopes to continue the establishment's deep-rooted commitment and connection to the community."
Audubon Circle, which first opened in 1996, has been a casual but slightly upscale neighborhood spot known in part for its burgers and cocktails.
[March 12 update: According to its Facebook page, Audubon Circle is now closed, with the restaurant apparently shutting down after brunch this past Sunday. The page also says "See you in 3 weeks!" which indicates that the new restaurant called Audubon could be opening in sometime in early April.]
[April 4 update: A new post from Eater Boston states that Audubon is now open, with the menu showing such items as chili, wings, Italian sausage, sandwiches, burgers, turkey meatloaf, spring pea ravioli, and corn husk flounder.]
The address for Audubon is 838 Beacon Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Its website is at http://audubonboston.com/
