Laurie's 9:09 Restaurant in Wakefield Has Closed; Catering Operation to Continue

A restaurant and caterer in the northern suburbs of Boston has closed the restaurant end of the business, and it is now going to be focusing exclusively on catering.

According to a note on, Laurie's 9:09 restaurant shut down for good on New Year's Eve, and the business is now getting ready to move from its old home on Tuttle Street to a new space on New Salem Street where it will operate a catering facility. An earlier Facebook post from the place indicated that owner Laurie Rizzo had major foot surgery in July of 2016, and with the recovery being slower than expected, the decision was made to make the shift from restaurant operation to catering.

Laurie's 9:09, which first opened in the fall of 2012, was an upscale neighborhood spot that focused on steak, seafood, and a mix of New American and traditional American fare.

The address for Laurie's 9:09 restaurant was 33 Tuttle Street, while the new address for the catering operation is 93 New Salem Street.

Thanks to The Passionate Foodie for initially bringing this to our attention.
