Well, here's a bit of a shocker. Telegraph, the constantly-busy wine bar and restaurant on the square from the people behind The Bluebird, Webster's Wine Bar and Reno, is closing on June 7 after three years in business. Chef Johnny Anderes, a Food & Wine best new chef finalist just this year, is leaving to "pursue new opportunities." Reps say that it "was a very amicable parting and there's no drama at all behind this decision."

The restaurant will reopen with a new name and concept sometime next month, according to a note on the website. There's no word yet on what that concept will be or what Anderes' next move is. Stay tuned; this story is developing.
