Update: Superfine Food in Marblehead and Newburyport Have Closed for Good

by Marc Hurwitz

[Ed note: This article was updated on January 14 to reflect confirmation that the two locations have shut down for good.]

A trio of eclectic comfort food spots on the North Shore have been reduced to one, at least for the time being.

According to several sources, Superfine Food in Marblehead and Newburyport are shuttered, and it is not known if or when they might reopen. An article from The Daily News says that a sign out front at the Newburyport location that wishes customers a good holiday season has been up for several weeks now, and owner Matthew Gaudet had not responded to either the landlord or the newspaper at the time of the publishing of the article yesterday. Another source tells us that the original location of Superfine in Manchester-by-the-Sea does remain in operation.

As soon as we find out more about the exact status of Superfine in Marblehead and Newburyport, we will post an update here.

Superfine opened on Washington Street in Marblehead last spring, while the location on State Street in Newburyport debuted last summer; the Manchester location has been in business since the summer of 2016.

[January 14 update: According to a source, both the Marblehead and Newburyport locations of Superfine have closed for good, with a Salem News article confirming this.]
