Owners/Operators of Stoddard's Fine Food & Ale in Boston Taking Over Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar

A restaurant and bar in Boston's Financial District is coming under new ownership, and the people behind it are the owners and operators of another restaurant and bar located nearby in Downtown Crossing.

A message sent to us today indicates that the owners and operators of Stoddard's Fine Food & Ale on Temple Place are taking over Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar on Water Street, with the plan being to close the place for a short time to make some minor renovations and reopen it under its new ownership sometime in June. Once it reopens, expect a concept that is fairly similar to that of Stoddard's, with classic and New American food offered along with local craft beers, vintage cocktails, and more.

Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar resides in a former bank building and had been called The Vault until changing its name in the spring of 2015.

The address for Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar is 105 Water Street, Boston, MA, 02109.

[June 14 update: According to a Facebook post, Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar plans to reopen under new ownership on Tuesday, June 20.]
