Turner Fisheries in Boston's Back Bay Is Closing

A popular seafood restaurant in the Back Bay of Boston is going to be closing its doors, apparently making way for a new eatery.

Zagat confirms what A Thought For Food told us on Friday, that Turner Fisheries in The Westin Copley Place Hotel is shutting down. According to Zagat, the dining spot will close on December 21, with the plans being to "reposition" the space "based on current market dynamics and dining trends," and while Bar 10 within the hotel will remain open, it will go through an "exciting refresh" sometime next year.

Turner Fisheries, which first opened its doors approximately 30 years ago, is an upscale seafood spot that features such items as black sea bass, lobster risotto, horseradish-crusted salmon, and a New England bouillabaisse. It also offers steak, chicken, and vegan dishes.

The address for this soon-to-close seafood restaurant in the Back Bay is: Turner Fisheries, 10 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for The Westin Copley Place Hotel can be found at
