Orfano in Boston's Fenway Neighborhood Is Apparently Closing

An award-winning Boston chef and restaurateur appears to be closing one of her dining spots.

According to four sources within the restaurant/hospitality industry (including one with a connection to the dining spot itself), Orfano in the Fenway section of Boston is shutting down, with all four sources saying that today is apparently its last day in operation, while a check within its reservations section seems to confirm this, as reservations are only being taken for tonight and that starting tomorrow and for all days that follow, there is no online availability. Tiffani Faison, who is a four-time nominee for the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Northeast (including for Orfano) and who recently won the Food Network's "Tournament of Champions," is behind the Brookline Avenue spot, and she also runs Sweet Cheeks, Fool's Errand, and the now-closed Tiger Mama which is reportedly going to be reconcepted.

Orfano is an Italian restaurant that first opened in the summer of 2019.

The address for Orfano is 188 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA, 02215.
