Sapa at The Launch at Hingham Shipyard Is Closing

An Asian restaurant on the South Shore is closing, and the coronavirus played a role in its decision to shutter.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Sapa at The Launch at Hingham Shipyard is shutting down permanently, with a Facebook post from the place saying that "COVID-19 and the restrictions that followed have significantly changed the experience of restaurant dining and bar patronage...and have made it impossible for us to continue SAPA successfully." The note mentions that the restaurant plans to close its doors on September 5 and that anyone with gift cards can either use them before it shuts down or get a refund before that date by emailing them.

Sapa first opened toward the end of 2018, taking over the space that had been home to Zendo. The dining spot offers a variety of Asian dishes, with much of its menu including Chinese entrees and sushi.

The address for Sapa is 25 Shipyard Drive, Hingham, MA, 02043. Its website can be found at
