True Bistro in Somerville's Teele Square Is Closing Indefinitely

A vegan restaurant in Somerville is getting ready to close down for the foreseeable future.

According to a source, True Bistro in Teele Square is shutting down indefinitely, with a Facebook post from the Broadway eatery saying the following:

We're really sad to say that this Sunday brunch 9/6/2020 will be our last service until further notice. We will miss all of you! The best way that you can take action to protect independent restaurants, is to contact your local representative about the Restaurants Act and ask that they pass this business-saving legislation. If you're interested, more information on the Restaurants Act is available at Thank you!

True Bistro first opened approximately ten years ago in the space where Teele Square Cafe had once been, with the restaurant offering vegan dishes including white bean dip, herbed cashew boursin, pasta salad, macaroni and cheese (using cashew cheese), green curry, veggie lasagna, shepherd's pie, and more.

The address for True Bistro is 1153 Broadway, Somerville, MA, 02144. Its website can be found at
