East End Grille in East Somerville Has Closed
It looks like a Somerville restaurant and bar that was known for its inventive takes on comfort food has shut its doors.
According to multiple sources, East End Grille on Broadway in East Somerville is no longer in business, with a check on the dining spot's website indicating that it has expired, while phone calls placed indicate that its answering machine is now off. It has not been completely confirmed that this is a permanent closure, though it appears that East End Grille has been shuttered for approximately a week with no explanation given.
East End Grille first opened in the spring of 2013, taking over the space where Khoury's State Spa had been; before the restaurant opened, the space had been looked at by the person behind La Brasa (which ended up opening at 124 Broadway) and the team behind Redbones in Davis Square.
The address for this now-closed dining and drinking spot in East Somerville was: East End Grille, 118 Broadway, Somerville, MA, 02145.
[October 3 update: According to an email newsletter from East Somerville Main Streets, this does indeed look like a permanent closure, as the space where East End Grille has resided is slated to be home to a new mixed-use apartment complex.]
