City Landing on the Boston Waterfront Is Closing

An upscale restaurant on the Boston waterfront is going to be closing its doors this weekend.

According to a source (and confirmed by The Boston Globe), City Landing is shutting down at the end of business hours Saturday (January 10), with chef and owner Bill Brodsky moving on to become chief culinary officer at Boston Nightlife Ventures (Forum, Griddler's, Tap Trailhouse, Wink & Nod). A press release sent this morning also mentions that City Landing workers will join Brodsky at BNV, including Chef de Cuisine Patrick Enage, who will be the "driving culinary force" behind Wink & Nod's next rotating pop-up concept this spring. Brodsky will also be behind the second location of Griddler's, which will open on Boylston Street across from Boston Common.

City Landing first opened in July of 2012, featuring New American fare in a casual environment.

The address for City Landing is 255 State Street, Boston, MA, 02109.

[January 23 update: According to a Boston Licensing page within the City of Boston website, a new restaurant tentatively called Old Atlantic Tavern is looking to open within the former City Landing space, with the manager for the proposed dining spot being Patrick Lee. It is not known if this is the same Patrick Lee who is the owner of The Grafton Group (Park, Grafton Street, Russell House Tavern, Temple Bar), as the listing mentions the name "Atlantic Shore Restaurant Corporation" rather than The Grafton Group; as soon as we find out more information, we will post another update here.]
