Jonathan's Bar and Grille in Newton Loses Its Lease, Shuts Down

A restaurant and bar in Newton has closed its doors after being in business for less than a year.

According to posters on Chowhound, Jonathan's Bar & Grille on Needham Street is no longer in business, with one person on the food site posting a photo (via Village 14) showing a sign that says the place has shuttered "due to losing their lease."

Jonathan's featured a mix of classic and modern American fare, including chicken meatballs, crispy pork dumplings, lobster rolls, thin-crust pizza, seared ahi tuna, lamb shank, and wild mushroom ravioli.

The address for this now-closed dining and drinking spot in Newton was: Jonathan's Bar & Grille, 215 Needham Street, Newton, MA, 02459.

They didn't "lose their lease". Jonathan's owner owned the building, and it was foreclosed on a few months back and it was sold at auction.

There's a sign out front that says they closed "due to losing their lease." A photo of the sign can be seen on the Chowhound page (which is linked to in the article).

And the sign has Jonathan's name at the bottom.

He can put up any sign he wants, but his Jonathan's management company owns the building, and it was lost to foreclosure a few months ago. It is all public record. It was open 11 months. What retail lease lasts 11 months?
