Amrheins in South Boston Temporarily Suspends Operations, Will Reopen for Breakfast/Lunch on January 6

[Ed note: This article was updated to reflect new information given on when it will be opening back up.]

An iconic South Boston restaurant is closed for now.

According to a source, Amrheins in South Boston is shuttered, with a photo taken of a sign out front saying that "After much consideration we have decided to suspend business until further notice. Please continue to support the small businesses of your community buy gift cards, order take out, tip your delivery drivers. We look forward to serving you in the future." Amrheins, which first opened its doors in 1890, is known in part for its hand-carved bar which is the oldest of its kind in the United States.

The address for Amrheins is 80 West Broadway, South Boston, MA, 02127. Its website is at https://www.amrheinsboston.com/

[December 29 update: A tweet from Kara Baskin of The Boston Globe mentions that Amrheins plans to open back up on January 6 for breakfast and lunch.]
