According to Boston Business Journal, a new restaurant is slated for the former school on Arlington Street. Back Bay resident Ruta Laukien, previously an investment banker at Bear Stearns, is behind the project, along with chef Jeffrey Fournier of 51 Lincoln.
Boston Business Journal says Laukien "expects to spend as much as $5 million to outfit the space including about $275,000 for a liquor license" and that the menu will feature international fare, including dishes from her native Lithuania. Main dishes will be priced from $20-$30.
In an online video, Laukien shares her vision for the restaurant. "My concept is a place that will combine a restaurant, a lounge, art gallery, all in one, all of equal importance, blended together. It's a place that will be alive, fluid, constantly in motion," she says.
