Rafiki Bistro in Cambridge Has Closed

A bistro between Cambridge's Harvard Square and Porter Square that featured mostly organic, healthy takes on Provencal fare has decided to call it a day.

According to their Facebook page, Rafiki Bistro on Mass. Ave. is now closed, with their last day of operation being this past Saturday. No specific reason for their closing was given, with the Facebook note simply saying "Last night [Saturday night] Rafiki Bistro closed its doors for the last time. To all our friends and loyal customers we say 'THANK YOU.'"

Rafiki Bistro first opened its doors in the spring of 2010, taking over the space where the Forest Cafe had been since the 1930s. The restaurant featured a mostly French and New American menu that included such items as mussels, crispy eggplant, fried calamari, a spring salad with duck egg, tuna tartare, coq au vin, crispy cod, statler chicken, and steak frites.

The address for this now-closed restaurant in Cambridge was: Rafiki Bistro, 1682 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
