b.good Closes Its Newbury Street Location in Boston's Back Bay; New Location Opening on Boylston Street

[Ed note: This article was updated on February 25 and April 15 to reflect new information given.]

A small local chain of restaurants that features "real" fast food (and tends to focus on burgers) has closed one of its Boston locations, though it appears to be more of a move than a closing.

One of our readers told us that b.good on Newbury Street in the Back Bay has closed, with the location being taken off their website and subsequent phone calls not going through. Its closure has been confirmed this morning, as a call placed to another location in Boston indicates that the Newbury Street shop is indeed no longer in operation.

[February 25 update: A commenter on this page, along with a poster on the b.good page, both say that a new location of b.good is planned for Boylston Street near the now-closed location on Newbury Street. As soon as we have more details, we will post another update here.]

[April 15 update: A Facebook post from a couple of weeks ago confirms that this is indeed a move, with a new b.good coming to Boylston Street possibly later this month or in early May, based on the info from the post. The new address will be 665 Boylston Street, which appears to be where New England Dental Center had been.]

[August 5 update: According to a new Facebook post from the chain, the new b.good on Boylston Street in the Back Bay is now open.]

Currently, Boston-area locations of b.good can be found on Summer Street in the city's Financial District, Washington Street in the downtown area, two others in the Back Bay, Harvard Square in Cambridge, Legacy Place in Dedham, the Burlington Marketplace in Burlington, Great Road in Bedford, and the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham.
