Boston Restaurants That Are Hibernating This Winter

Not open, but not closed either.

Written by
Updated January 11th, 2021

This has been an incredibly challenging year for restaurants. Many places started doing takeout and delivery for the first time, while others underwent drastic transformations. And sadly, a lot of spots were forced to close as well.

There’s also a growing list of restaurants that are choosing to hibernate this winter for a variety of reasons: cost control, employee safety, or simply out of necessity as they await federal aid. Next spring, at the end of what may be a very dark and challenging winter, we’re hoping to see all of the restaurants on this list back for good.

If you know a place that should be included, please send an email to boston@theinfatuation.com. We would also like to credit the Boston Restaurant Talk blog as a source for a number of these hibernations.
