Jumbo Seafood in Newton Centre Has Closed As It Starts "New Chapter" in Boston's Chinatown

A Chinese restaurant in the western suburbs that was known in part for its seafood has shut down, though its name lives on in downtown Boston.

According to a source, Jumbo Seafood in Newton Centre is no longer in business, with a note on the website of the Langley Road spot saying the following:

Leaving Newton was a tough decision to make and we want to thank all of our customers and neighbors for welcoming us to Newton Center nearly two decades ago....While we are sad to announce that we are officially closing our doors in Newton, this is not a goodbye, but rather a see you very soon. We are very excited to share that Jumbo Seafood will be entering a new chapter in the place where we started it all - Chinatown, Boston.

Jumbo Seafood is now open in the former New Jumbo Seafood space on Hudson Street in Chinatown, with a note within the website of that restaurant indicating that "the original owner of Jumbo Seafood" has indeed returned to that space and is featuring a Hong Kong-style menu with seafood along with such options as pork and chicken dishes.

The address for the now-closed Jumbo Seafood in Newton Centre was 10 Langley Road while the address for Jumbo Seafood in Chinatown is 5 Hudson Street. The website for the Boston location is at
