The Butcherie in Brookline to Temporarily Move into Rubin's Space

A kosher grocery store in Brookline that remains closed after being hit by a fire is moving into a new home for a little while, and it will be taking over the space where a landmark deli had been until recently.

Universal Hub is reporting (via a Facebook post) that The Butcherie on Harvard Street will be moving into the Rubin's space--which is also on Harvard Street--starting today and remaining there through the end of August, with the people behind the market offering meat, dairy, challah, and pastries to customers. The post shows the grocery store thinking Cafe Eilat and Catering by Andrew for helping them get through the past few weeks by allowing the market to sell some of its goods at both places. (It is still not known when The Butcherie will able to move back into its home, which was damaged in a blaze last month.)

Earlier, we had reported that Rubin's--which closed earlier this month after being in business for 90 years--could be reopening, as the new owner of the property has been working with potential operators to bring back the deli.

The address for the Rubin's space is 500 Harvard Street, while the address for The Butcherie is 428 Harvard Street.
