A restaurant in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood known for its excellent Neapolitan-style pizza will shut down at the end of service this week. Tapestry (69 Kilmarnock St., Boston), a two-sided restaurant from Meghann Ward — with its casual Expo Kitchen side and the more upscale Club Room — will run through one last week of business before closing, as the building it occupies will be sold for a new development project.
Ward and her team at Tapestry are inviting customers and friends to the restaurant on Friday, August 23, for a final farewell and to celebrate the years of support and friendship, according to a rep for the restaurant. Ward is working on future projects, but no plans are set yet.
Tapestry first opened in May 2016 in the former Church restaurant and music venue space. Ward, a Coppa alum, and husband Kevin Walsh (previously of Clio) installed a pizza oven to fuel the menu on the casual side, Expo Kitchen, which churns out Neapolitan-style pizzas along with bar snacks like chicken wings, crispy potatoes, and burgers, as well as cocktails, beer, and wine.
The Club Room on the other side of Tapestry served a refined selection of dishes like seared seafood, roasted meats, and ceviche. That portion of the restaurant had been closed for the summer with plans to reopen in the fall, according to the Tapestry website.
Catch Tapestry one last time before it closes this week. The proposed project for the site of the restaurant includes apartments, as well as new restaurant and retail space.
