Townsend's in Hyde Park Has Closed
A restaurant and pub in Hyde Park that Boston's Hidden Restaurants (our sister site) recently picked as the best Irish restaurant and pub in the Boston area has closed its doors.
An email sent by one of our readers stated that Townsend's on Fairmount Avenue was closing, and a subsequent check on the business shows that the place is indeed shuttered, with notices on the front indicating that the restaurant is no longer in the space. No other information was given in the notices, and it is not known exactly which day Townsend's shut down, nor is it known whether the restaurant will be moving to another spot (see comment below).
Townsend's first opened in early 2008, bringing to Hyde Park a place to get a mix of Irish, New American, and traditional American dishes, along with a variety of beer and wine. The dining and drinking establishment was picked by Boston's Hidden Restaurants as the best little-known Irish pub for 2011, and it has been featured within the site as well.

The address for this now-closed restaurant and pub in Hyde Park was: Townsend's, 81 Fairmount Avenue, Hyde Park, MA, 02136.
