North Square Oyster in Boston's North End Has Closed for Renovations

by Marc Hurwitz

A seafood restaurant in the North End of Boston has closed for the time being.

According to a Twitter post from @Steve_O_McN, North Square Oyster is shuttered, with the tweet saying that it is"closed for renovations till the Spring," while Patrick Maguire of Maguire Promotions & Hospitality confirms this, telling us that a sign out front says exactly that, though no further information has been given. We have sent a message to the dining spot and are waiting to hear back, so stay tuned for any updates that may come in.

North Square Oyster first opened in the spring of 2017, taking over the space where Gennaro's Five North Square had been. The restaurant has a connection to Ward 8 and Bodega Canal, both of which are located where the North End and West End/North Station area meet, and it also has a connection to a brand new Italian restaurant across from Ward 8 called Tony & Elaine's

The address for North Square Oyster is 5 North Square, Boston, MA, 02113. Its website can be found at

[February 4 update: North Square Oyster says in a tweet that this is indeed just a renovation and that they will reopen in the spring as shown on the sign out front.]
