The Stork Club in Boston Is Closed

It looks like a restaurant and jazz lounge in the South End of Boston has closed its doors.
According to posters on Yelp and Chowhound, as well as one of our readers who emailed us, The Stork Club on Columbus Avenue shut down a few days ago, with a Chowhound poster mentioning that a sign is on the door stating that the place is closed until further notice. The Stork Club, which opened last summer in the space where Bob's Southern Bistro and Bob the Chef used to reside, has offered comfort food to diners and has featured live jazz and blues.

[June 11 update: According to the Boston Herald, The Stork Club closed because of a contract dispute between the owner and the group that holds the space's licenses (and which was behind the short-lived Circle, a French restaurant that briefly resided in the spot in late 2008). It is not know for sure at this time whether The Stork Club will reopen, though the general manager of the place indicates that the closure is only temporary, according to the Herald.] [August 16 update: A new restaurant called Darryl's Bar and Kitchen will be moving into the spot where The Stork Club was.]

The address for the now-closed Stork Club was: The Stork Club, 604 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118.
