Bar Lyon to Open in Boston's South End

A new restaurant and bar is on its way to the South End, and it looks like the place may be connected to one of Boston's best-known restaurants.

According to a source (via a hearing notice), Bar Lyon is looking to open at the corner of Washington Street and Massachusetts Avenue, with the notice indicating that Mark D'Alessandro of Mistral is the manager of the proposed spot. Very little is known about the place other than the fact that it hopes to have seating for approximately 60 people and that it will have both a dining area and a bar.

Mark D'Alessandro is currently the general manager at Mistral, which is a high-end French restaurant on Columbus Avenue in the South End.

The address for the proposed Bar Lyon is 1750 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02118. The website for the restaurant will be at

[September 18 update: Boston Magazine confirms that the upcoming Bar Lyon indeed has a connection to Mistral, as chef/owner Jamie Mammano and the Columbus Hospitality Group are behind the place, which will be a French restaurant with seating for 50 in the dining area and less than a dozen at the bar.]

[January 9, 2018 update: Zagat states that Bar Lyon plans to open in the late winter or early spring.]
