Bob's Southern Bistro Closing

10/31/2007 01:40:00 PM
If you haven't tried their Sunday Jazz Brunch, you better make your reservations soon because Bob's Southern Bistro won't be around much longer. An article in yesterday's Globe (here) talks a bit about what will be happening to the space after Bob's closes on November 25th.

Settles, whose name has been associated with Boston's jazz scene over the past decade, told the Globe yesterday that he is selling the South End institution to Malcolm Aalders, a 28-year-old Cleveland native who recently moved to Boston from the Netherlands.

Aalders will take over the space in December and plans to rename it Night Town. The menu will feature American cuisine, and live musical performances will range from rock to funk to jazz to "whatever people want," Aalders said yesterday. "We'll have the best burger in the Greater Boston area," he added.

The "best burger in the Greater Boston area." Bold claim. We'll see in December if Mr. Aalders pulls through. I will miss Bob's fried chicken, but a great burger would be a welcome addition. I'm still mourning the loss of Tim's a few years back.

Farewell Bobs, it was good knowing you. I'll be sure to swing by at least once before you close. And to those that will miss the chicken, there's always Popeye's in Kenmore.

    No need to go to Kenmore Square for fried chicken. Just around the corner from Bob's on Tremont Street is Slade's Bar & Grill, which cooks up amazing fried chicken, ribs, collards, and other good eats. And they have live music (jazz & blues), comedy, and karaoke almost every night and Saturday afternoons.
