Allston's Big City is undergoing a radical transformation that will transform it into Patron’s Mexican Kitchen & Watering Hole. Like Big City and Sunset Cantina, the new venture will continue to be run by owner Marc Kadish, and a rep from the restaurant tells Eater that the space is looking to open in its new guise by Labor Day, if not late August. Earlier reports have Patron keeping some of Big City's pool tables but overall becoming more of a full-fledged restaurant than its prior incarnation. Meanwhile Kadish has undergone something of a radical transformation himself: the same rep says that the owner has lost over 100 pounds.
