Petit Robert Bistro in Brighton May Be Replaced by Ittoku
The Brighton location of a group of French restaurants may be closing, and a Japanese dining spot could be moving into its space.
Universal Hub is reporting that the owners of Petit Robert Bistro on Comm. Ave. might be selling its beer and wine license--along with the rights to the space--to Kentaro Suzuki, who would open a new spot called Ittoku. UH mentions that the proposed eatery, which would feature such items as ramen, sushi, and yakitori, will be voted on today by the Boston Licensing Board (Suzuki went before the board yesterday to ask permission for the transaction). The mayor's office, three city councilors, and the Brighton Allston Improvement Association are all in favor of the plans.
The folks Petit Robert Bistro opened Chez Jacky in the space in June of 2010, with its name being changed to Jacky's Table two months later. (The restaurant became Petit Robert Bistro about a year later.) Other Petit Robert Bistros are located in the South End, Kenmore Square, and Needham, with a location of Petit Robert Central being found in Downtown Crossing.
The address for Petit Robert Bistro in Brighton (and the proposed Ittoku) is: 1414 Commonwealth Avenue, Brighton, MA, 02135.
