Wow, this article was a shocker. It's on the front page of the Globe today. Louis Boston - that really upscale store on Newbury that has it's own parking and such - is not going to renew their lease when expires in 2010.

According to the owner, Newbury isn't trendy enough anymore. She wants something edgier and different. She says that everything on Newbury Street now is similar and that there isn't anything new anymore. Bold words. Sort of true I guess, but still - it's kind of a slap in the face to Newbury.

It also looks like she wants more space because she said she wants to add a spa and a bakery to the mix. According to the Globe she's considering "the waterfront or another neighborhood."

What do you guys think? Seaport District? Downtown Crossing (after it's done being gentrified)?

The other big shocker was imbedded in one sentence in the middle of the article. "The restaurant, Boston Public, abruptly closed this week because of financial problems, according to chef Pino Maffeo."

Boston Public closed?!? I only went once about a year ago (here) but I thought the place was pretty nice. That's a shame.

Anyhoo, click (here) to read the article.
