    Earlier this summer, we reported that an upscale restaurant and lounge in East Boston had closed for renovations and would remain shuttered for several weeks. Now we have learned that a brand new dining and drinking spot is going into its space.

    According to a source, New England Craft Restaurant Concepts is opening Craft Table & Bar in the Porter Street space where Ecco had been until late June, with the new place being a "polished" casual restaurant that features mostly classic and modern American fare along with a variety of beer, wine, and spirits options. The group behind the new spot is also opening a location of Craft Table & Bar in Worcester as well, along with several Brew on the Grid coffee shops in the Greater Boston area.

    Ecco, which opened a bit less than 10 years ago, was known in part for its New American dushes and its cocktails.

    The address for the upcoming Craft Table & Bar (and now-closed Ecco) is 107 Porter Street, East Boston, MA, 02128. The website for both locations of Craft Table & Bar can be found at

    August 29 update: Craft Table & Bar, which had been planning to open late this month, is holding a job fair on August 31, with the old Ecco page saaying that the restaurant will be opening "soon."
