51 Lincoln in Newton Highlands to Close for Good This Weekend
A couple of months ago, we reported that an award-winning suburban restaurant had filed for bankruptcy, though it planned to remain in operation. Now we have learned that the dining spot will actually be shutting down after all.
Eater Boston mentions (via bostonchefs.com) that 51 Lincoln in Newton Highlands will close for good after business hours this Saturday (June 25), which follows the shuttering of its sister restaurant--Waban Kitchen--in late March and a subsequent bankruptcy filing for 51 Lincoln a week later. The Lincoln Street eatery first opened approximately eight years ago and was known mostly for its upscale New American fare, with the place receiving various "best ofs" from The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, and Dig Boston, according to its site.
It is not yet known what restaurant--if any--might move into 51 Lincoln's space at this point in time.
The address for this soon-to-close restaurant in Newton Highlands is: 51 Lincoln, 51 Lincoln Street, Newton, MA, 02461. Its website is at http://www.51lincolnnewton.com/
