NoBL Closes to Reconceptualize

NoBL, the follow-up restaurant to Sycamore from Stephen Wagner and Sam Jacobson closed on Friday. According to a message posted to the Lansdowne restaurant’s web site, the team has decided to take another look at the concept and business model. The restaurant is closed in the meantime.


Thank you for your patronage since our opening this summer.  We have decided to take another look at our concept and business model and are going to remain closed until further notice. We hope that you will continue to patronize our sister restaurant Sycamore, just down the street.

    my take is that craig didn’t cause, but could have averted.

  • Omega

    Hopefully they change that name in the process.

    This is a pity we have be fans of Sycamore and recently
    Tried NOBL for first time loved everything about it.
    Why is it that everything I love is taken away from me?

    It would have been considerate of them to notify those of us that had reservations for 12, only to find out they were closed. Not good business.
