Dear friends and neighbors
First, we wanted to thank you for all the years of patronage you have given us. It has been an honor to be your go-to spot for dinner, hangouts, and celebrations. Over the years, we were so fortunate to call Newton Centre our home and to share our food, cocktails, and hospitality with you. But as we all know, all good things must come to an end. It was a difficult decision to make, but we have decided to close the restaurant and allow for a talented couple to come into the space and share their vision with you. It is definitely bittersweet –it is sad to say goodbye but we are so excited to see what Chefs Kate and Trevor Smith bring to this wonderful community.
We know you will welcome them as they take over the space and create the neighborhood restaurant of their dreams called Thistle & Leek. Chefs Kate and Trevor are eager to share their plans with you – and we are delighted to give you a small taste into why we wish them the very best here. Kate and Trevor met cooking on the line at the Craigie Street Bistro over a decade ago and since then have gone on to cook at amazing restaurants such as Le Bernardin, Straight Wharf, Ventuno, and Gramercy Tavern. Closer to home, Kate was Chef at Toro and Trevor was Chef at Coppa. Now they are opening their first restaurant here and we couldn’t be happier for them. They will be in touch with you about their plans and we hope you welcome them with open arms and big appetites!
We are also happy to share that Thistle and Leek will honor Comedor gift cards for a period of one year from their opening date. Stay tuned for more details about their opening date and a sneak peek of their menu.
