Noche, a Latin American restaurant in the South End, closed Saturday, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. The lounge-like restaurant opened two summers ago, featuring small plates such as arepas con queso and mini burgers with guava ketchup, along with entrees such as diablo chicken with cornbread stuffing and filet mignon in a poblano demi-glace. It's not gone for good, though; an announcement on the restaurant's Facebook page indicates that the owners, Boston Nightlife Ventures, will be "moving the concept across town to a different location" to open in the spring. The new location will feature an "extended Latin menu," the addition of brunch and lunch, and cocktails until 2 AM.
Meanwhile, Boston Nightlife Ventures will open another restaurant at Noche's spot on Appleton St., a "new, fun concept, catering to the alternative scene." (A tweet from Noche refers to it as a "new fun lounge catered to LGBT.") It's set to open in late fall or early winter.
