Biltmore to close???

Ferris_Bueller | Feb 17, 200806:47 PM

My SO and myself were sitting at the bar of the Biltmore (in Newton Upper Falls) on Valentine's Day, enjoying a fantastic dinner - "crazy delicious" pub fries, amazing mussels, a perfectly rare steak special, and a haddock special.

Unfortunately, we were privy to a conversation between Rebecca, the co-owner, and a couple of regulars who were seated reight next to us. The conversation revolved around the notion that the "silent partner" of the Biltmore wanted out, and unless there was a way to buy this person out, the Biltmore was destined to close.

I am not a rumor-starter by nature, and I must say that this was my very first visit to the Biltmore. The reason why I even started this thread is because of the amazing evening we had there, with both my SO and myself declaring that this was destined to become our new favorite neighborhood hangout (and we live a few miles away in Auburndale). I just feel like - assuming the hearsay we heard is true - that everyone who has eaten and/or drank at the Biltmore needs to show their support and not let the so-called "silent partner" shut down such a great neighborhood establishment.

Reading back, I realize that this post is something of a rant, and I do apologize for that. I just really needed to express how I felt. I hope what we overheard is not true, and I hope that this latest incarnation of the Biltmore will be around for many years to come.
