Best Burger Bar in Brookline Village Has Closed

[Ed note: This article was updated to reflect the possibility that the restaurant could be reopening at some point.]

A burger spot that had a legendary mixologist behind its cocktail program has closed its doors.

According to a couple of sources, Best Burger Bar in Brookline Village is no longer in business, with the Station Street spot apparently closing over the past couple of days. The dining and drinking place was a casual burger bar that featured drinks created by Brother Cleve, a well-known local figure who was called "the Godfather of Boston's cocktail revival" by the eatery and who also played keyboards for the popular Boston rock band the Del Fuegos.

Best Burger Bar first opened in the summer of 2017, taking over the space where the Middle Gray had once been.

The address for this now-closed restaurant and bar in Brookline Village was: Best Burger Bar, 6 Station Street, Brookline, MA, 02445.

[December 6 update: The Boston Globe states that Best Burger Bar may be reopening under new management, with the place possibly opening its doors once again in a couple of weeks.]
