Davide in Boston's North End Has Been Sold

[Ed note: This article was updated on January 19 to reflect new information given, including the fact that the restaurant has been sold.]

It looks like an Italian restaurant in Boston's North End that was once on a popular food show has closed its doors.

A post on its Facebook page from December 2 indicated that Davide on Commercial Street would be shutting down "in a few weeks" and that "It is time to venture out to new and exciting opportunities." A call placed to the restaurant today shows that the phone number is no longer in service and OpenTable mentions that the dining spot is offline temporarily, with a reviewer on the site stating that the place is being sold.

[January 19 update: The statement above about Davide being sold has been confirmed by, though it is not yet known who has purchased the restaurant. The article does say that Davide may actually open for a few more weekends, though it will definitely close once the liquor license transfer officially takes place. It appears that the new dining spot will probably have a new name and a renovated interior, according to]

Davide, which first opened about 15 years ago, focused mainly on Northern Italian cuisine. The restaurant had once been featured on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

The address for this now-closed dining spot in the North End was: Davide, 326 Commercial Street, Boston, MA, 02109.

Thanks to one of our readers for initially bringing this to our attention.
