Kitchen in Boston's South End Closes After Its Liquor License Becomes Unavailable
A restaurant in the South End of Boston has shut its doors, and its closure stems from the fact that its liquor license is no longer available.
Eater Boston is reporting that Kitchen on Tremont Street is no longer in operation, with a Facebook post from the place saying that "the non-transferable liquor license we were operating under is no longer available. So, we cannot continue to operate in the Kitchen space." (The note also refers customers to Grotto in Beacon Hill and Marliave near Downtown Crossing, both of which are under the same ownership.) According to EB, the license that Kitchen was using came from Pops Restaurant, which had been in the space from 2007 to 2011 and which is losing the license; at this point in time, there are no plans to reopen Kitchen in another location, though owner Scott Herritt does tell Eater that a new cafe/coffee spot is being planned for the lower floor of Marliave.
Kitchen first opened in June of 2012, initially featuring dishes based on recipes from a collection of old cookbooks, though it morphed into more of a seafood-based spot last September.
The address for this now-closed restaurant in the South End was: Kitchen, 560 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02118.
