Stephanie's taking over Garden of Eden spot

Just a rumor, but my source is pretty reliable. What might it be called? Stephanie's on Newbury on Tremont? Stephanie's South End? Incontrovertible evidence of the ongoing Back Bay-ification of the neighborhood?

I've always felt the original Stephanie's was a nasty piece of work, the purest example of how a good patio in the right location can overcome mediocrity in food and service. Of course, that's pretty much been Garden of Eden's story for five years, so in at least one respect, this isn't terribly shocking.

I will hold my cynicism in check for now; maybe they will alter their formula in the new location to produce something worthwhile.
