Update: Cottonwood Cafe in the Back Bay Has Closed; Looking for New Space

A restaurant in the Back Bay of Boston that has been serving Southwest cuisine for many years is getting ready to shut its doors.

According to a poster on the Chowhound site, the Cottonwood Cafe on Berkeley Street is going to be closing on June 30 after being in business since the early 1990s. A call placed to the restaurant has confirmed that it will indeed be closing at the end of the month. [June 28 update: According to a number of sources, including the Boston Herald, the Cottonwood Cafe has closed a bit early, as their last day was apparently yesterday (Sunday, June 27).]

Known in part for its margaritas, outdoor patio, and people-watching, the Cottonwood Cafe features lunch and dinner seven days a week, offering such items as blackened scallops, stuffed Anaheim chiles, black bean soup, a tenderloin tip sandwich, roasted poblano macaroni and cheese, grilled red chile sausage, paella, black angus strip steak, and lamb chops.

The address for this dining spot in the Back Bay was: Cottonwood Cafe, 222 Berkeley Street, Boston, MA, 02116.

[July 14 update: According to the restaurant's website, the Cottonwood Cafe
is looking at new spaces, as it is hoping to reopen in the next three to six months. The website note also mentions that the folks behind the Cottonwood Cafe had decided to leave the Berkeley Street spot once their lease had expired.]
