One of a trio of upscale French bistros is following in the footsteps of its original location, shutting down for awhile while it undergoes renovations.
According to a press release, Aquitaine at Legacy Place in Chestnut Hill has closed for upgrades, and it will remain shuttered until sometime this fall while its other two locations in Boston's South End and Dedham's Legacy Place remain open for business as usual. The flagship location of Aquitaine in the South End shut down for similar reasons in February of 2016, with the Tremont Street restaurant reopening in June; some of the changes made to that eatery included a larger bar, a new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, a second bathroom, and some additions to the menu.
The Chestnut Hill location of Aquitaine first opened in 2000, two years after the South End restaurant opened its doors. In addition to the three Aquitaine locations, The Aquitaine Group also operates Cafe Green Light, Cinquecento, Gaslight, La Motta's, and Metropolis Cafe in the South End, and another location of Gaslight in Lynnfield.
The address for Aquitaine in Chestnut Hill is 11 Boylston Street, Chestnut Hill, MA, 02467. The website for The Aquitaine Group can be found at http://www.aquitainegroup.com/
