Walnut Grille in Newton Highlands Is Being Replaced by Shiva's Kitchen

A vegetarian and vegan restaurant west of Boston is getting ready to closing down as the space will be going through a reconcepting.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Walnut Grille in Newton Highlands will soon be shutting its doors, with a Facebook post from the place saying the following:

As of April 1st, Walnut Grille will be closing. We want to thank everyone for all of their support over the past 10 years! Unfortunately, we never really recovered financially from the pandemic. However, our team will still be around! We will be rebranding to our new concept Shiva's Kitchen. Our new restaurant will be offering Indian cuisine. We will be open for lunch and dinner and available for catering. Please don't hesitate to ask for some of your Walnut Grille favorites if you need us to cater an event!

Walnut Grille first opened in 2013, focusing on vegetarian and vegan dishes while also offering many gluten-free options along with organic wines and cocktails.

The address for Walnut Grille (and the upcoming Shiva's Kitchen) is 1203 Walnut Street, Newton, MA, 02461.
