Barbara Lynch is a famed Boston chef, and that fame is much deserved. She is creating her own culinary empire in Boston, with many diverse and excellent establishments. Currently she owns No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, Butcher Shop, Plum Produce and Niche Catour. No.9 Park is her high end restaurant near the State House. It is a superb place with great food and a fine wine list. B&G Oysters is her seafood restaurant, specializing in oysters. The Butcher Shop is both a restaurant and butcher shop. Plum Produce sells fruits and vegetables. And Niche Catour is her catering business.
Her empire continues to grow!
Today's Boston Herald mentions that Barbara Lynch has just opened Stir, next to the Butcher Shop. Stir will be a combination bookstore, library and test kitchen. Barbara will run cooking classes there as well, starting next Monday.
But that is not all. The August 2007 issue of Boston magazine states that Barbara Lynch will be opening several places in the Fort Point neighborhood, including a fine-dining restaurant, a daytime cafe and a cocktail lounge. They are supposed to open next spring.
