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