The BNV team, who run restaurants like Forum and Griddler's, originally planned to call their new South End restaurant Blind Tiger. No more. Their rep e-mails us some updates about the space and the concept, slated to open early next year. Here's details from BNV president Euz Azevedo:

The team here at Boston Nightlife Ventures are getting one step closer to announcing our newest venue which is going in the former Noche space in the South End. The venue has been referred to as "Blind Tiger," but that was just the project name for our speakeasy, not the final name. In the end, we decided against that name after hearing feedback from people who thought that Blind Tiger was going to be an Asian restaurant. During our renovations and as our concept became more clear, we thought that the name Wink and Nod sounded more in line of what we are trying to create in the space. The chic, new restaurant and lounge is going to have a serious craft cocktail program with a dinner menu that can be paired well with the inspired drinks and are encouraged to be shared. The interior hues will combine rich reds and golds with wood and marble to make for a mysterious yet enticing vibe.


Expect the mysteriously enticing restaurant to open in late January or early February. Intriguingly, Azevedo says that Wink and Nod is merely the first of "several" new concepts opening in 2014 from the BNV team.

Wink and Nod, 3 Appleton St., South End
