Little Italy Landmark Indigo Grill Announces Impending Closure

An institution in Little Italy, where it has been a fixture of the dining scene for almost 20 years, Indigo Grill will bid a final farewell to the neighborhood on Saturday, February 8. Founded by chef Deborah Scott in 1994, the modern Latin restaurant became part of the Cohn Restaurant Group’s portfolio in 2001 when it moved and made its debut on India Street. The eatery was given a major design and menu makeover back in 2014, though some of Scott’s most famous dishes, including her pumpkin seed-crusted brie, remained cherished mainstays.

Scott, who is still a partner in several other Cohn Restaurant Group concepts, including Coasterra, Island Prime/C Level, and Vintana, plans to be on hand during Indigo Grill’s final weeks to personally say goodbye to guests; look for her to be welcoming diners on January 29, February 1, February 5, and February 8.

In an official statement, Scott shared, “I would like to thank all of our guests who made Indigo Grill a place to gather, share experiences, and form new friendships. Personally, I owe Indigo Grill more than I can say, from the privilege of meeting David and Lesley Cohn (my mentors and family), to our incredible, loyal guests, who quickly became (and will continue to be) family. It feels like the end of an era. I will always remember and appreciate the opportunities this landmark has afforded me.”
