Geoffrey's Cafe in Boston Closes, May Reopen Under Different Ownership
An eclectic restaurant in Bay Village (near where the South End and Back Bay of Boston meet) has been shut down, though it appears that the place could open back up under new ownership.
Universal Hub is reporting that Geoffrey's Cafe on Berkeley Street is closed, with a Twitter picture showing a sign out front saying that the eatery was "vacated" this past Friday by order of the Superior Court. Facebook posts by Brian Spencer imply that he is apparently out as the owner of Geoffrey's, though it sounds like the dining spot may reopen with someone else behind it, as he says that "It will still be Geoffrey's. I may not be there, yet Geoffrey's is a neighborhood place, the people that go there make it."
[March 19 update: It looks like Geoffrey's may indeed be reopening, as owner Brian Spencer says via his Facebook page that "the group that is buying [the restaurant] has full intentions of keeping the name, concept, staff, and doing some much needed renovations! It is slated to reopen in a month or so!" It is not known at this point who is buying Geoffrey's; as soon as we find out, we will post another update here.]
Geoffrey's Cafe had moved from Roslindale to Berkeley Street in 2010, and it had also previously resided on Boylston Street (its original location), Tremont Street, and Commonwealth Avenue. The restaurant has been in business for more than 20 years.
The address for this now-closed dining spot in Boston is: Geoffrey's Cafe, 142 Berkeley Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
