In traditional recession fashion, we only have closings this week.
Back Bay: Joe’s American Bar & Grillon Newbury is reportedly closing next year. We mostly ended up at Joe’s when we couldn’t get in anywhere better for brunch on busy weekends. However, don’t fret, because right up the street at Charley’s Eating & Drinking Saloon, the menu is almost exactly the same. [Boston Real Estate Blog]
Somerville: This month the Abbey Lounge will close. This is one that will get people pissed. The classic music location is pretty much a Cambridge mainstay. It’s sad when such great places disappear. [Cantabrigia]
