Pops Restaurant in Boston's South End Has Closed

It looks like a South End restaurant that has offered diners a variety of inventive comfort food dishes since opening a few years back has closed its doors.

According to a source within the Boston media, Pops Restaurant on Tremont Street shut its doors over the weekend. A call placed to the eatery yesterday evening could not go through as no one was answering, and OpenTable is no longer taking reservations for the place.

Pops first opened in the winter of 2007, featuring a mix of classic American, New American, and comfort food items, including baked macaroni and cheese, braised short ribs, meatloaf, lamb bolognese, and chicken pot pie. The restaurant served dinner seven days a week, with breakfast/brunch offered Friday through Sunday.

The address for Pops was: Pops Restaurant, 560 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02118.

Thanks to Boston-area food/drinks writer MC Slim JB for helping out with some of this information.

[October 17 update: According to a Facebook post from CBH Communications, Sunday was closing day for Pops Restaurant, and it appears to have been strictly a business decision. The post also mentions that it now looks like the Pops space is for sale. Thanks to Christine Liu for sending this information via Twitter.]

that makes no sense. the place always had a wait, and the food was fantastic. a real loss.

I agree! I had so many pre-theater dinners at this place and always had an amazing time. Service was so gracious and customer-focused and the food was simple, unpretentious but also high quality. I wonder if the extra expense of the bar expansion was an overreach?

The food was fantastic and the staff was great—a real neighborhood gem. Unfortunately, they were forced to contend with a very vocal group of neighbors who, despite their cries, really just don't want a restaurant there. It's incredible these people who supposedly want to live in a Boston city neighborhood, but would prefer the quiet living experience of the suburbs. I'll be surprised if another restaurant can get a foothold in the space.
