East by Northeast in Cambridge's Inman Square is Closing; Owner to Work with The Gallows Group
An award-winning Asian restaurant in Cambridge is going to be closing, with the person behind it possibly turning his attention to a new dining spot in the South End.
Eater Boston is reporting that East by Northeast in the city's Inman Square neighborhood is shutting down in March after being in business for more than five years. The article says that according to a newsletter post from EXNE chef/owner Phil Tang, he will be working with The Gallows Group to open a new concept, which could be the restaurant moving into the former Hamersley's Bistro space on Tremont Street (Hamersley's closed last October, with the people behind The Gallows on Washington Street and Blackbird Doughnuts on Tremont Street taking over the spot).
East by Northeast has received much recognition since opening its doors in 2010, with a number of local and national publications (including The Boston Globe, New York Times, The Improper Bostonian, Boston Magazine, and Bon Appetit) giving it "best of" awards and/or noting specific dishes from the place.
According to the EXNE website, the last day for the restaurant will be March 8.
The address for this soon-to-close Asian spot in Inman Square is: East by Northeast, 1128 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
