Orfano Opens at Pierce Boston
Restaurateurs Tiffani Faison and Kelly Walsh open their highly anticipated Orfano tonight. Guided by the whimsy of “sorry Nonna,” Orfano is a subversive Italian-American restaurant that does not bow to traditions – its orphan spirit breaks away from regions and rules, conventions and expectations. The opening marks Tiffani and Kelly’s fourth restaurant and it solidifies that even their greatest fans cannot predict what they are capable of. As their most upscale concept yet, Orfano, as Tiffani so aptly puts it, “has moves.” The moves extend from the bar to the service to the décor, and underlie Tiffani’s unique ability to translate her own sharp humor into a dining experience that bestows guests with much more than just her gastronomic talent. A culinary maverick, Faison’s special sauce is in her ability to respect a cuisine’s roots while also fearlessly taking it apart and putting it back together in a way that only she could. With Orfano, she delivers next level Italian – delicious, elegant, humorous; distinctly different than anything else in Boston. Orfano seats 96 in total: 16 at the bar, 20 in the café and 60 in the dining room. The café and bar are open to guests without reservations. Reservations are suggested for the dining room. Orfano is located at 1391 Boylston Street Boston MA - on the ground floor of Pierce Boston in the Fenway.

Weiner Ventures Announces 1000 Boylston Will Not Move Forward
Weiner Ventures has announced the approved project at 1000 Boylston will not proceed. Plans for the project called for a single tower containing around 108 condo units, rising from a podium with 45,500 square feet of first and second-story retail and restaurant space.
In a statement Weiner said, “The 1000 Boylston project in Boston’s Back Bay set out to transform an undeveloped highway overpass into a hub of residential and retail activity, providing significant urban design and quality of life benefits while stimulating economic growth. The 1000 Boylston team will not proceed with the project. A combination of factors led us to this decision. While disappointing to have to make such a decision, we believe it is the correct one, and still paves the way for other future air rights projects to come to fruition.”
