Update: Milk Street Cafe in Boston's Financial District Reopens After Being Closed Since Last Fall

[Ed note: This article was updated on August 16 to reflect the fact that the place has reopened.]

A Kosher restaurant in the heart of Boston is the latest dining spot to announce that it is closing for the winter of 2020/2021.

According to a source, Milk Street Cafe in the city's Financial District has decided to go into hibernation as of late October of 2020, with a Facebook post from the place saying that both the cafe and catering operation will be shutting down until "more of our customers are able to return to their offices." The restaurant is one of a number of spots to go into hibernation as the pandemic continues, with The Emory in Beacon Hill, Commonwealth in Cambridge's Kendall Square, Grand Tour in the Back Bay, The Kenmore in Kenmore Square, and Gray's Hall in South Boston all shuttering for the winter, while Orfano and Tiger Mama in the Fenway and Sligo Pub in Somerville's Davis Square all plan to go into hibernation this weekend.

Milk Street Cafe has been in business since 1981.

The address for Milk Street Cafe is 50 Milk Street, Boston, MA, 02109. Its website can be found at
