AKA Bistro in Lincoln Is Closing

It looks like an upscale suburban restaurant is getting ready to close its doors for good.

A message sent from The Passionate Foodie indicates that AKA Bistro in Lincoln is planning to shut down, with the closing date possibly being around May 8 or 9. No reason has been given for the closure as of yet, nor is it known what might go into the space; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

[May 3 update: According to a new message from The Passionate Foodie, AKA Bistro closes for good at the end of business hours on Mother's Day (Sunday, May 8).]

Christian Touche and Chris Chung first opened AKA Bistro by the Mall at Lincoln Station in the spring of 2010, with the restaurant featuring both French and Japanese fare. Touche had formerly been at the now-closed Clio in Boston's Back Bay, while Chung had been at Uni, which was adjacent to Clio and recently took over the Clio space.

The address for the soon-to-close AKA Bistro is 145 Lincoln Road, Lincoln, MA, 01773. Its website can be found at
