Aquitaine Bar a Vin Bistrot, a South End staple for 18 years, will be closing for renovations on Sunday, February 21st. The facelift will refresh the space while maintaining the authentic, Parisian vibe that has welcomed customers for nearly two decades. The powers-that-be behind the restaurant (namely the Aquitaine Group’s holy trinity – Matt Burns, Seth Woods and Jeff Gates) hope to pay tribute to the former St. Cloud Hotel, the centuries-old, French-style building that Aquitaine calls home. No need to worry though—doors will reopen in May just in time to celebrate the restaurant’s 19th anniversary. In the meantime, weekly contests and giveaways will be happening through Aquitaine’s various social media platforms ( Twitter, Facebook and Instagram).
