Shabu & Mein in Cambridge Is Closing

A Cambridge restaurant that is known in part for its ramen and hotpot is shutting down.

According to a Twitter post from the place, Shabu & Mein on First Street is closing on September 30, with the tweet saying that "our building is undergoing a complete renovation and we are the only tenant left. In order to facilitate this renovation we have decided to close." The note refers customers to its "sister restaurants" which includes a handful of Fuji restaurants throughout the Greater Boston area.

Shabu & Mein first opened its doors in 2014.

The address for Shabu & Mein is 148 First Street, Cambridge, MA, 02141. Its website can be found at
