Update: Figs in Boston's Beacon Hill Temporarily Closes, Reopens Again
[Ed note: This article was updated on September 6 to reflect the fact that Figs has reopened once again.]
Several weeks ago, we reported that a Beacon Hill dining spot owned by a celebrity chef and restaurateur had closed for renovations, with the place soon reopening. Now we have learned that it has temporarily closed once again.
A Twitter post sent this evening indicated that Todd English's Figs on Charles Street was looking "rather empty," while an article from Universal Hub states (via a Twitter photo) that the restaurant is indeed "temporarily closed." The note out front does not indicate that any renovations are being done this time around, with customers being referred to the Charlestown location of the eatery.
[September 4 update: In addition to the Beacon Hill location of Figs closing, Boca News Now states that another Todd English restaurant--English Tap & Beer Garden in Boca Raton, FL--closed as well yesterday, with this one apparently being permanent (it is still not known whether the Figs closure is temporary or permanent, though the signs indicates that it may be temporary).]
[September 6 update: According to a tweet posted last night, Figs in Beacon Hill is reopening today; a phone call placed to the restaurant confirms this, as it is indeed going to be opening its doors once again at 6:00 this evening.]
Other Todd English restaurants in Boston have closed over the past several years, including Bonfire in Park Plaza, Kingfish Hall in Faneuil Hall, and Olives in Charlestown, and Isabelle's Curly Cakes on Charles Street had closed for what it said was renovations earlier this year, with the place ultimately closing down.
The address for Figs in the Beacon Hill section of Boston is 42 Charles Street, Boston, MA, 02114.
