Ten Tables Closes Its Cambridge Location
One of the highest-rated restaurants in Cambridge has closed its doors after being in business for approximately six years.
Eater Boston is reporting that Ten Tables shut down at the end of business hours on New Year's Eve, with the staff "abruptly" finding out about the closure of the Craigie Circle eatery from owner Krista Kranyak Chalfin on January 2. The article says that Stan Hilbert, who is the GM of the Jamaica Plain location of the restaurant, has bought the space, and it appears that the Ten Tables name probably won't be kept, according to Benjamin Lacy (the executive chef of the Cambridge location). Chalfin will now be turning her focus to the expansion of Grass Fed, a burger bar on Centre Street in JP that will soon expand to a second location in Forest Hills, along with her original Ten Tables which is also on Centre Street.
Last year, we mentioned that the Cambridge location of Ten Tables was possibly going to be sold and turned into a new spot called Homage Bistro, but that deal fell through.
Ten Tables in Cambridge was a higher-end restaurant known for its eclectic menu and intimate, cozy atmosphere; the dining spot has received high ratings since opening in 2009, with Zagat giving it a 26 (out of 30) for food, which is one of the highest ratings given for any restaurant in Cambridge.
The address for the now-closed Ten Tables in Cambridge was 5 Craigie Circle, Cambridge, MA 02138. The website for the JP location can be found at http://tentables.net/
