Boston Restaurant Talk first noted rumblings about a new seafood spot from the team behind Mistral, and today the Columbus Hospitality Group — powerhouse restaurateurs behind Mistral, Teatro, Sorellina, Mooo, and L'Andana — confirms to us that they'll open Columbus Fish & Oyster this fall in the old Avila space at 1 Charles St. (Avila closed last week).

We're told that Mitchell Randall, who's now the executive chef at Mistral, will handle executive chef duties at the new space. A high-end, non-chain seafood restaurant will definitely be a worthy addition to the neighborhood (though we enjoy a good chowder at Legal Sea Foods as much as anyone). No menu yet, though we're fairly sure we can expect oysters. And plenty of fish.
