Parsnip in Cambridge's Harvard Square Has Closed

An upscale American restaurant in one of the busiest parts of Cambridge has shut down permanently, though the people behind it could eventually be opening another dining spot in the space.

According to a post from The Boston Globe, Parsnip in Harvard Square has closed for good, with a spokesperson for the Winthrop Street spot indicating that the COVID-19 pandemic played a part in the decision, saying that "Given the way people have changed their habits of living due to the global health crisis, they didn't think they could reopen and have a viable business at this point in time." The spokesperson does hint that a new concept could open there at some point, stating that "They'll have other ideas once this is over for that beautiful space."

Parsnip first opened in 2015, initially offering New American fare with European influences, with the food offerings having Filipino influences of late.

The address for the now-closed Parsnip was 91 Winthrop Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
