Cafe Luigi in Bedford Has Closed; Will Reopen in New Building
A popular suburban restaurant that has been in business for nearly 30 years has closed for now, though it will reopen in a new home next year.
According to one of our sources on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook page (and confirmed on a post from the dining spot), Cafe Luigi in Bedford closed its doors over the weekend, as the building in which it resides within the Bedford Marketplace shopping center is getting ready to be demolished as part of a major renovation of the Great Road complex. The dining spot is hoping to reopen in the spring of 2016 once construction on the new building that it will move into has been completed.
Luigi's, which first opened its doors in the mid-1980s, is a family-friendly Italian restaurant with a mix of old-fashioned Italian-American dishes and more traditional Italian fare.
In addition to Luigi's, the Bedford Marketplace shopping center is also home to locations of Whole Foods, Marshall's, and a number of other stores, and it will also be home to a location of Red Heat Tavern sometime this fall. (The original Red Heat is located in Wilmington.)
