Grub in Boston's Mission Hill Is Closing

by Marc Hurwitz

A restaurant that is run by the person behind a highly-rated pizzeria is getting ready to shut down after less than a year in business.

According to a source, Grub in the Mission Hill/Brigham Circle section of Boston is closing for good at the end of this week, with an Instagram post from the Huntington Avenue eatery referring customers to Penguin Pizza across the street while also hinting that at least some of the menu items at Grub will be offered there in the near future. Dermot Doyne of Penguin Pizza first opened Grub in the late fall of 2016, offering a variety of poutine options along with sandwiches and brunch items.

Penguin Pizza has been mentioned in the press as a top place for pizza over the years, with The Improper Bostonian awarding it best restaurant in Mission Hill while CBS Boston included it among its 2014 picks for best pizza and beer.

The address for Grub is 738 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115.

October 27 update: According to its Instagram page, Grub will close at the end of business hours on Sunday, October 29, as it will be serving its final brunch that day.]
