Cognac Bistro in Brookline Is Up for Sale

It looks like a French bistro in Brookline is going to be sold, though it may remain open for at least a little while, at least until a buyer is found for it.

The Brookline TAB is reporting that Cognac Bistro on Harvard Street could be shuttering by the end of the year, as owner Nelson Cognac is planning to move to the Jay Peak area of Vermont and open a new dining and drinking establishment up there. (Cognac has already purchased a lodge in Jay.) The Brookline eatery is already on the market, and the price (approximately $275,000) includes its liquor license, according to the article.

[September 12 update: A poster on the Chowhound site states that Cognac Bistro will close on September 22, with OpenTable: Boston Restaurants seeming to confirm this--it shows that no reservations are being taken for the restaurant after September 22.]

Cognac Bistro, which first opened in the fall of 2010, features dishes such as duck confit hash and poached eggs, mussels escargot, croque monsieur, pan-seared sole, pork sausage, and grilled hanger steak. It also has an oyster bar.

The address for Cognac Bistro is: Cognac Bistro, 455 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446.

Thanks to a poster on the Chowhound site for bringing this to our attention.
