Restaurant News

Good news: some places are opening. Bad news: Icarus closed.

Icarus, a South End favorite, has closed. After 31 years in the neighborhood, the restaurant is saying goodbye. No word on what's replacing it.

In October, plan to see the new Clarendon Bldg (corner of Clarendon and Stuart) to have a new restaurant - Post 390. The former chef at the Excelsior will be taking over the new restaurant menu which is going to be cheaper than his former restaurant.
In the old Excelsior spot, the owners of Grill 23 and Harvest are planning to open a Mediterranean/French restaurant in the fall as well.

Lastly, the old Last Drop location is a new tavern - The Corner Tavern. They will be surving food until midnight, offering 17 wines by the glass, and a selection of whiskey, single malts and tequilas. Sounds like that may be dangerous. Corner Tavern is located at 421 Marlborough Street. Click here for more.

This inside of The Corner Tavern is almost exactly like the Last Drop save a fresh coat of paint, the removal of the dart boards, and re-stained wood furniture. From the description, I guess a lot of the newness is in its selection of drinks.
