Littleburg in Somerville's Union Square Is Closing

A takeout restaurant in Somerville that features vegan Mediterranean fare is shutting down.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Littleburg in Union Square is getting ready to close, with an April 24 Facebook post from the Sanborn Court spot saying the following:

All good things come to an end....Our lease is up mid May, and without a new space to transition into, Littleburg's time has come. We're operating for just two more weeks, making all of our favorite menu items from the last three years of Meal Delivery this week and next. Find this week’s menu at Takeout will be open like normal too....Swipe to read more about the decision to close.

Littleburg first opened its brick-and-mortar shop in the summer of 2021, transitioning from a pop-up business that Chef/Owner Graham Boswell established in 2017.

The address for Littleburg is 5 Sanborn Court, Somerville, MA, 02143. Its website can be found at

[May 11 update: Eater Boston states that Littleburg is now closed.]
