The restaurant that takes the place of Locke-Ober is meant to be "a first-class dining destination and supper club," Universal Hub learns at a licensing hearing. Owner Christopher Jamison envisions small plates of both "New American" and international cuisine, a library bar in the back room, and musicians playing brass and woodwinds. The basement club will be used as a function room.
Locke-Ober closed in late 2012 after nearly a century and a half in business. "I had a choice," owner David Ray told the Globe at the time. "Make Locke-Ober more casual, lower our standards to conform with the way society is today, or I could close it. I could close it with its history and its dignity intact."
