303 Cafe in East Boston Has Closed

It looks like a restaurant in the Jeffries Point section of East Boston that has been in business for about five years has closed its doors for good.

A message sent to us from a follower of our Hiddenboston Twitter page mentions that a sign on the door of 303 Cafe on Sumner Street says "closed for renovations." A call placed to the restaurant indicates that their phone is now out of service, while a check on the Yelp site shows the "Closed" label at the top of the page for the dining spot.

303 Cafe first opened in 2007, bringing to the Jeffries Point neighborhood a place featuring an eclectic mix of New American cuisine and comfort food. A few items on their menu included frittatas, seafood linguini, chili cheese fries, arroz con pollo, steak tips, and mushroom risotto.

A Boston Globe article from last summer pointed out that 303 Cafe had been in financial trouble, actually closing very briefly in August. The article mentioned problems with debt and legal issues affecting the restaurant for awhile.

The address for this now-closed restaurant in East Boston was: 303 Cafe, 303 Sumner Street, East Boston, MA, 02128.
