This is it for West Newton’s Lumiere. According to Boston Magazine, the last day for the bistro will be Feb 29. But they’re holding a “Last Supper” a few days before on Feb. 20. And, of course, you can celebrate Valentine’s Day there too.
The restaurant opened to much fanfare in 1999 and changed hands in 2015, but the Boston dining scene isn’t what it was. There is word that the restaurant may change owners again, but would likely be something different entirely. If you want to go way back you may remember the location as a Brigham’s.
All that said, Flora’s Wine Bar will soon be open right across the street in the former Coney Island space. I had an email from the owner over the weekend saying that it should be open in the next 7 to 10 days.
