Change is a-comin'.
On the heels of Monday's news that restaurateur Peter Kasperski is giving up two of his SouthBridge restaurant spaces and moving Digestif into smaller digs, more specific details have emerged.
For the remainder of this week, Digestif will only be open for dinner, starting at 5 p.m. This Saturday, July 11, will be its last night of service at the current location, and then the staff will make a quick transition to opening in the space just up the street where Sea Saw used to be.
According to the restaurant's "buzz & schmooze" gal, Mari Markogianis, the new spot will be open by July 22, and will still be participating in the upcoming Yelp Eats! Restaurant Week.
Will you miss the "old" Digestif? I will. The couches, the groovy lamps, that incredible bar -- it was a fun, unpretentious hang that seemed so unlikely for Old Town. I hope the downsized Digestif hangs on to that vibe (and hopefully some of the furniture).
