Figs in Boston's Beacon Hill Remains Closed After Fire Earlier This Month

A week and a half after a fire hit a Beacon Hill dining spot owned by a celebrity chef, the place remains closed and it is not known when it might reopen again.

A check on the spot indicates that Todd English's Figs is locked up and dark, with a note out front at the Charles Street restaurant saying "Due to a small fire, we will be closed temporarily until further notice," while it refers customers to the Figs location on Main Street in Charlestown--and it also says it is offering delivery to the Beacon Hill area from that location. An earlier post from Universal Hub mentioned that this was a fire in the ductwork that extended up to the roof, noting that a duct fire in 2010 is also what ended up leading to the permanent closure of another Todd English restaurant--Olives in Charlestown.

As soon as we find out when Figs in Beacon Hill might reopen again, we will post an update here.

The address for Figs is 42 Charles Street, Boston, MA, 02114. The website for both locations can be found at

[December 29 update: A check on the place indicates that Figs is still closed.]

[May 8, 2017 update: More than a half year after it closed due to a small fire, Figs on Beacon Hill remains locked up and dark, according to a source.]
