Bistro Chi and Kama Lounge in Quincy Closing; Building to Be Torn Down

by Marc Hurwitz

A Chinese restaurant and a lounge that are under the same ownership and reside in the same building are getting ready to close, as they are losing their home.

According to an article in the Patriot Ledger, Bistro Chi and Kama Lounge in Quincy are planning to shut down for good on October 31, as the Cottage Avenue building in which they reside has been taken by eminent domain by the city and will be demolished this winter. The post says that both spots--which are owned by JP Fuji Group--have accepted a settlement and do not plan to reopen elsewhere at this point in time. It is not yet known what might replace the building housing Bistro Chi and Kama Lounge, but it appears that the taking down of the building is connected to the ongoing redevelopment of Quincy Center.

Bistro Chi and Kama Lounge first opened in early 2010, with the former being a Chinese eatery featuring a mix of Chinese-American and authentic Chinese fare and the latter being a sleek bar with cocktails, tapas, trivia, and DJ nights.

The address for Bistro Chi and Kama Lounge is 39 Cottage Avenue, Quincy MA, 02169. The website for JP Fuji Group can be found at
