Noche will open in the former South End home of Icarus a week from today, per UrbanDaddy. Somehow, we suspect Noche won’t be attracting the same crowd as Icarus: maybe its the fact that the space has been redone with black walls and white leather or maybe it’s the fact that the menu is a parade of lounge inevitabilities: Kobe sliders, a “crabtini” of lump crab, pico de gallo, avocado and sour cream, lobster tail stuffed with crab meat and served with bacon-wrapped green beans. There’s also a cocktail list that includes both a “caramel macchiato” (espresso liqueur, caramel liqueur, cream) and a peanut butter cup martini (Cuervo, Kahlua, Bailey’s, and a scoop of peanut butter). If that sounds appealing, take note: the restaurant seats 100 and offers private parties.
