Patois Will Close


A couple of months after Trout closed and Jim Mamary declared his planned oyster bar “dead in the water,” Flo Fab brings news that his other restaurant with Alan Harding, the Smith Street pioneer Patois, will shutter on Sunday (also due to lease issues). It may reopen elsewhere, but the duo is now focused on Black Mountain Wine House on Union Street. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]
