A French restaurant in Boston's South End is shutting down.

According to a member of the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page who shared the news with us, Bar Lyon on Washington Street is closing its doors. A Facebook post from the place says that its last day in operation will be Dec. 31.

Bar Lyon first opened in September of 2018, with the Columbus Hospitality Group (Mistral, Mooo...., Teatro, Sorellina, Ostra) behind it; the restaurant serves dishes found in southeastern France and is also known in part for its selection of French wines.

The address for Bar Lyon is 1750 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02118. Its website can be found at
