Pigalle in Boston to Become a New Restaurant

The chef and owner of a French restaurant in Boston's Theatre District area is planning to re-concept the place, with the focus being more on American food in a casual setting.

Grub Street Boston is reporting that Marc Orfaly of Pigalle on Charles Street South is going to be closing the eatery in order to bring a new spot with "American-inspired tavern fare" into the space. GS says that Orfaly is teaming up with Matt Camilleri (who had been at The Biltmore and Local 149) to open the restaurant, which will feature bar snacks and meals made in an open kitchen, along with a raw bar and craft beer options. The unnamed dining spot could be opening sometime in late May.

Pigalle has been in business for more than ten years.

The address for Pigalle (and Orfaly's upcoming restaurant) is 75 Charles Street South, Boston, MA, 02116.
