In some sad news certain to rock campus, Bespoke, the College Street staple famous for its drinks, friendly bartenders and expensive food, will be closing on Feb. 4 after six years of business, according to an announcement posted to its website.

Like a phoenix, a Moroccan steakhouse called “Gilt” will rise from its ashes, in time for Valentine’s Day. Gilt’s website includes a menu, which features courses like Spiced Saffron Couscous, Fish Tagine and French Fries. The cocktail menu has not yet been released, so keep checking the website like it’s SIS. We’ll be checking, anyway.
