Cafe Sauvage Is Opening in the Former Hsin Hsin Cafe Space in Boston's Fenway/Back Bay Area

Early last year, it was reported that a longtime Chinese restaurant that also featured Japanese fare was on the market. Now we have learned that a brand new eatery is moving into its space.

According to a source (via a Reddit link), Cafe Sauvage is planning to open in the former Hsin Hsin Cafe space in the Fenway/Back Bay section of Boston. A photo sent to us shows signs for the upcoming spot out front, while its Instagram page indicates that it will be a cafe with French influences, saying in one post that "We aim to create the infamous Parisien cosmopolitan atmosphere in Boston."

Hsin Hsin Cafe, which first opened in 1992, focused in part on Sichuan and Cantonese fare while also offering sushi as well.

The address for Cafe Sauvage (and the old Hsin Hsin Cafe) is 25 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115.

[September 2 update: Eater Boston mentions that Cafe Sauvage plans to open around the middle of this month, and that Anaïs and Antoine Lambert (who both worked at Petit Robert Bistro, Frenchie, and Colette) are behind it.]

[October 20 update: According to a press release, Cafe Sauvage opens today.]
