A new restaurant, Bar Orange, is planned for a Forest Hills spot that has had two restaurants fail in the last five years.

The restaurant will be located at 3698 Washington St., which was previously home to the failed Tonic, and a second location for Grass Fed opened in 2016 and closed in 2017.

Bar Orange will be a sit down restaurant with a variety of in-house cooked food, using locally-sourced products, as well as local microbrews, said Ryan M. Gazda of McDermott, Quilty & Miller, LLP, which is representing Bar Orange at public meetings. Closing time will be 1 am. Despite the name, Gazda said the focus of the restaurant will be more restaurant than bar.

The restaurant plans to open by April and is owned by Bob O’Guin, who also owns and  operates sister restaurants Common Ground in both Allston and Arlington.
