Pantry in Brookline's Washington Square Has Closed

A food shop in Brookline that offered dinner kits, cooking equipment, beer and wine, and more has closed its doors.

According to a Facebook post from the place, Pantry in Washington Square is no longer in business, saying that "the last recipe has been sold and the last knife skills class has been taught. Pantry is out of business. Thank you for all of your support over the past year." It appears that the last day for the Beacon Street store was this past Saturday, when it cleared out the last of its bulk food items along with its display props. No reason has been given for its closure and it is not known what might be moving into the space at this point in time.

Pantry first opened in the spring of 2015, bringing to Brookline a place that featured a variety of recipe kits with pre-portioned ingredients and step-by-step instructions. A few offerings included chicken tagine with apricot couscous, poached salmon with lentils and horseradish-tarragon cream, chimichurri flat iron steak with elote and arugula salad, a chorizo burger with smoky aioli, kale salad, and roasted potatoes, schnitzel with golden beet watercress salad, and ginger lime pie with graham cracker crust.

The address for this now-closed shop in Washington Square was: Pantry, 1622 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA, 02446.
