UPDATE: The Rattlesnake Bar & Grill in Boston's Back Bay Is Not Reopening
[Ed note: This article was updated on November 18 to reflect the fact that the place is not reopening after all.]
Last night, we reported that a renowned restaurant and bar in Boston's Back Bay that closed its doors a few days ago appeared to be reopening, but now we have learned that this is not true.
A source told us yesterday evening that signs out front at the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill on Boylston Street indicated the dining and drinking spot would apparently be opening back up again, with photos sent showing that the signs said "We will reopen on Friday at noon." Messages sent to sources within the restaurant industry came up with nothing last night, but this morning an official source told us that the signs were actually for a private farewell party that was supposed to have taken place on Friday but ended up taking place on Wednesday instead, and the signs for the party were never taken down.
The address for the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill was 384 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
