Posted 7/8/12 – We have received confirmation from the leasing agent for the property at 120 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., formerly Boulevard Grill, Charcuterie, and most recently, Sierra Bistro, that the property has been leased to the folks that own Briganti, a high end Italian restaurant in South Pasadena. You can read more about Briganti here: http://www.brigantisouthpas.com/.
We have not been able to speak with the owners, and do not know what their plans for the Sierra Madre site are. It should be noted that the owners of Mike and Anne’s in South Pasadena opened Wistaria Grill in Sierra Madre, and the owners of T. Boyle’s Tavern will soon be opening T. Boyle’s Sports Grill in Sierra Madre, so it would be premature to say that Briganti is opening a second location here, they might very well plan on a different concept for this location, as have the other two recent restaurant additions.
We are trying to contact the owners, will provide more information as it becomes available.
