Little Dipper in Jamaica Plain Is Going into Hibernation

Yet another dining spot is closing down for the winter as the pandemic continues to hit the restaurant industry hard.

According to a message sent from Richard Auffrey of The Passionate Foodie, Little Dipper in Jamaica Plain is going into hibernation starting Monday, November 16, with its last service being brunch on Sunday, November 15--and it will join an increasingly large number of restaurants in and around Boston that have either announced that they will be hibernating for the winter or have already done so. A statement sent to us from the Centre Street eatery says the following:

....It has not been an easy decision to make, but we see closing temporarily as our best option to survive the colder months of the pandemic. Although we will return in the spring, we hope that you'll stop by to enjoy or take out a last brunch or lunch over the next few days....During our closure we plan to host restaurant pop-ups, in an effort to provide opportunities for local Chefs, staff and old friends to work on their craft and provide take-out for our community....Words can't express our appreciation to our staff, guests, suppliers, friends and families during this difficult stretch. Stay safe, JP. We'll see you when the weather starts to warm. 

Little Dipper, which first opened in the summer of 2018, is a space-themed diner that offers such items as pancakes, breakfast burritos, burgers, macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, veggie fried rice, chicken parm, and hanger steak. (We have been told that its affiliated restaurants--Tres Gatos and Casa Verde--will remain in operation and do not have plans to hibernate.)

The address for Little Dipper is 669a Centre Street, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130. Its website can be found at
