In case you missed the news, Chef Josh Silvers’ Railroad Square institution, Syrah Bistro closes April 16. The restaurant celebrates with a last hurrah dinner Saturday before shutting the doors and preparing for a whirlwind transformation. The restaurant is slated to reopen in early May as Petite Syrah (a play on the original name), a small-plates eatery.
Currently the new menu is “about 90 percent there,” according to Silvers. BiteClub hopes to have pictures and details after an early sneak peek on Monday. Of the closure of his Syrah, Silver says wistfully: “It’s bittersweet. I’m excited to start a new chapter, though.”
