New England Soup Factory in Brookline Village Is Closing; Building to Be Demolished
A popular location of a dining spot that is known for its soups is getting ready to close, as the building in which it resides is going to be torn down.
Eater Boston is reporting (via a Chowhound poster and a Facebook thread) that New England Soup Factory in Brookline Village is shutting down over the coming weeks, as Children's Hospital is demolishing its Brookline Place building. The Facebook post from the eatery says that "In the next few weeks we will be making arrangements to move full time into our Newton location."
[September 3 update: According to an article in the Brookline TAB, New England Soup Factory has been told that it has to leave its Brookline Village location by October 1, with owner Marjorie Druker saying that she plans to close the shop within the next two weeks.]
[September 18 update: A phone call placed to New England Soup Factory in Brookline indicates that it has officially closed for good. (And as stated before, the Newton shop will remain open.)]
New England Soup Factory first opened in Brookline approximately 20 years ago, with its second location on Needham Street in Newton opening a few years later. In addition to soups, the dining spot also offers salads and sandwiches along with sides and desserts.
The address for this soon-to-close soup place in Brookline Village is: New England Soup Factory, 2-4 Brookline Place, Brookline, MA, 02445. Its website can be found at http://newenglandsoupfactory.com/
