Tastings Wine Bar and Bistro in Foxborough Has Closed
A casual upscale restaurant southwest of Boston has decided to call it a day.
According to a post on its Facebook page, Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro at Patriot Place in Foxborough is now closed, with the note saying that "The combination of a weak economy, high and persistent unemployment, and high staff turnover has led us to this difficult decision." It is not known what the owners' plans are now that the dining spot is shuttered, nor is it known what might move into the space.
[July 2 update: The Boston Business Journal mentions that Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy yesterday, which indicates a likely liquidation of the business.]
Tastings first opened approximately six years ago, featuring New American and regional items such as herb-marinated olives, calamari, flatbread, a watermelon salad, cheese and charcuterie boards, steak frites, herb-crusted chicken, sauteed mussels, and macaroni and cheese, along with an extensive wine list.
The address for this now-closed restaurant at Patriot Place was: Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro, 201 Patriot Place, Foxborough, MA, 02035.
