UPDATED 4/9 Something new at old Doc's Steakhouse
Earlier this week, a peek through the locked, paper-covered doors at 63 Putnam revealed red wooden partitions and wall shelves that have been recently constructed. I could hear the buzzing of a chain saw and through my tiny viewing panel, it looked like a lot of renovation was happening.
Doc's owner Laura LaPoint declared bankruptcy last year and closed the restaurant's doors just as the summer was winding down.
Shanghai Grill hasn't been open long in the South Broadway location, but owner Jeff Chen has built a loyal clientele at the original Latham restaurant, serving Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisine.
