That weird diner along Grove Street near Gough, The Blue Muse (370 Grove Street), appears headed for closure, and news via the liquor licenses this a.m. is that restaurateur Jean-Luc Kayigire is relocating his dessert and wine bar, Muka, to the space. Kayigire opened Muka two years ago in the basement of the Alliance Francais, and the move makes some sense given the major foot traffic from symphony- and opera-goers on this block — a crowd Jardiniere is more than familiar with. Stay tuned for more about the opening at a later date.
