Financial District venue Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar (105 Water St., Boston) is now closed. It’s been a little more than a year since the restaurant — formerly the Vault (aptly named for its location in a former bank) before a 2015 rebrand — came under the ownership of the Stoddard’s Fine Food & Ale group and underwent some renovations.
A message on the Vanderbilt website confirms the closure, reading in part: “From the gang of The Vault & Vanderbilt, thank you for all the fun,” and recommending folks pay a visit to Stoddard’s, its sibling restaurant in Downtown Crossing (48 Temple Pl., Boston).
Vanderbilt served lunch, dinner, and brunch — the latter of which often included a live DJ — and had a lively entertainment calendar. The menu included pub fare like hanger steak tips, fish and chips, tacos, and wings, plus various sandwiches, soups, and salads.
Update, 10:15 a.m.: This story has been updated to reflect that Vanderbilt is already closed — it will not remain open until October 1, as previously reported.
