A popular Charlestown restaurant is about to close: Navy Yard Bistro (1 6th St., Boston) will have its final nights of service this weekend, in the form of several parties on Saturday and Sunday, according to a Facebook post from the restaurant. In a follow-up comment on the post, owner John Moore noted that the lease is up, but he’s looking for a new location. It could be another Navy Yard Bistro, or at least an iteration of it, as he told Boston.com.
Navy Yard Bistro first opened in August 2004 and spent years serving new American cuisine and wine. The restaurant will be closed for a wedding on Friday, August 23, but will open for two parties on Saturday; one will run from 5 to 8 p.m. with an admission fee of $50, while the other will stretch from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. for $80. There will be heavy appetizers, wine, and beer at each of the celebrations. Sunday night’s farewell will be a family-style dinner at 6 p.m. that includes food, beverages, and gratuity ($100). Customers can message the restaurant to make reservations.
Once the restaurant closes, the nearby Brewer’s Fork restaurant team will take over the space, opening a new restaurant in the style of “American bistro,” as reported in June. At the time, co-owner Michael Cooney told Eater there will be a focus on wine, with a rotating pasta menu and lunchtime sandwich and deli options.
Stay tuned for updates on a potential new location for a reborn Navy Yard Bistro and for the new as-yet-unnamed project from the Brewer’s Fork team.
