Kingston Station in Downtown Boston Is Closed for Renovations
A restaurant and bar in downtown Boston is closed until further notice, and it is not known if or when it might reopen.
Easter Boston is reporting (via a tipster) that Kingston Station is locked up, with a sign out front saying that the Kingston Street spot is closed for renovations. (A note on its website confirms this--with the note saying to check back "soon" for more information--and EB also says that its phone is disconnected.) A source within the restaurant industry who is in the local area is unsure of the status of Kingston Station, and no other information seems to be out on the place; as soon as we find out more about its status, we will post an update here.
[November 10 update: Based on a licensing board page within the City of Boston website, it looks like Kingston Station will reopen with the same name--though apparently under different ownership, with Kingston Cafe LLC petitioning to transfer the liquor license to The Kingston Group LLC and the manager of the place being Elizabeth Scott.]
[January 28, 2016 update: A new post from Eater Boston indicates (via Craigslist) that the new version of Kingston Station--which will may be called Kingston Grille and Bar--is now hiring, with the Yelp page for the place saying that it plans to open on March 1.]
[February 15, 2016 update: Eater Boston mentions (via the restaurant's Instagram page) that the people behind the upcoming Kingston Grille and Bar come from "some of the minds behind" Abby Lane, Back Bay Harry's, and Stoddard's Pub.]
Kingston Station first opened in 2007, moving into the space where Peking Tom's had once been. The restaurant features a mix of modern and traditional American fare and is a popular spot for folks going to--or coming from--the nearby Boston Opera House theater.
The address for Kingston Station is 25 Kingston Street, Boston, MA, 02111. Its website can be found at http://www.kingstonstation.com/
