CBS Scene Restaurant & Bar to temporarily close for renovations.
Patriot Place establishment to reopen in summer 2018 under new management agreement with Big Night Entertainment Group.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – In 2008, CBS Scene Restaurant & Bar opened at Patriot Place to provide a unique, cutting-edge dining and entertainment experience for the millions of fans attending events at Gillette Stadium. In 2015, CBS Scene added comedy to the dining experience with regularly scheduled shows at The Comedy Scene on the first floor of the venue. After nearly 10 successful years of operation, CBS Scene owners, the Kraft Group and CBS, believe now is the time to make significant renovations to update and modernize the restaurant.
The venue will be closing temporarily on Feb. 12 to undergo a renovation project that will address guest-facing dining areas, furniture and equipment, back-of-house operations and equipment and audiovisual technologies.
The restaurant is targeting a summer 2018 reopening. Once reopened, the restaurant will be operated under a new management agreement the Kraft Group and CBS have entered into with Big Night Entertainment Group (BNEG), New England’s distinguished hospitality and management company. BNEG has received a number of awards, including five straight years as one of The Boston Globe’s 100 Top Places to Work, taking the No. 1 ranking in 2016.
“Big Night Entertainment Group is considered best-in-class for restaurant operations in the industry, operating more than 12 high-quality hospitality establishments in New England, including Scorpion Bar at Patriot Place,” said Patriot Place General Manager Brian Earley. “We look forward to working with Ed Kane and his talented team on this new venture.”
“We are very excited to work with Patriot Place on another project at this great destination,” said Ed Kane, principal of Big Night Entertainment Group. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to transform the hospitality at CBS Scene and create a new offering for guests as BNEG continues to expand throughout New England.”
