Update: Zebra's Bistro and Wine Bar in Medfield Is Closing; Nosh & Grog Provisions Replacing It
[Ed note: This article was updated on August 1 to reflect new information given, including a name for the place, which is now open.]
An award-winning suburban restaurant is closing, and it is being replaced by a new spot from the same owners.
According to a Facebook post from the place, Zebra's Bistro and Wine Bar in Medfield is shutting down to make way for a new restaurant with a new name, with a post in the comments section indicating that it closes at the end of business hours on Sunday, July 3. A note on Zebra's website shows that the upcoming eatery will be a spot that "is easy, approachable, and playful showcasing seasonal product prepared with a lot of love and soul. It will be a spot where you want to meet friends and hang out over a glass of wine, beer or an expertly crafted cocktail." A new dining room and bar will be built in the space, and Chef Joshua Bottini (Spago in Las Vegas, Davios in Chestnut Hill, The Franklin Group in Boston, Church & Main in Burlington, VT, The Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI) will be heading up the kitchen.
Zebra's Bistro and Wine Bar, which first opened approximately 16 years ago, has received much praise over the years, with the restaurant's website showing that it has received a "Best of Boston" from Boston Magazine, an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator, a Great 8 from the Phantom Gourmet, and more.
The address for Zebra's (and the upcoming restaurant that is replacing it) is 21 North Street, Medfield, MA, 02052.
[August 1 update: Eater Boston states that the name of the new restaurant is Nosh & Grog Provisions, and that it is now open for business; EB also says that the space has been renovated and now includes a U-shaped bar and a new seasonal menu with dishes using locally-sourced ingredients.]
