Year End Vacation Closings

We were going to meet friends at Trattoria Toscana tonight but I thought I remembered that they take some time off this time of year. I remembered correctly, they are closed until January 12th.

We switched our gathering to Rendezvous Central Square.

Any other places closed for a year end break?

              I hope you're right. I was by there earlier today and the sign was folded over...so I couldn't read anything other than "closed."

                  Any further reports on Wing's? I was just pondering a first visit there later in the week.

                    9lives was right...sign now just says "closed"

                  2. re: barleywino

                    Every time I was in there, the place was deserted. Given the prices and apparent lack of crowds, I always wondered how he stayed open. Too bad, that was one of my favorite chinatown lunch spots (admittedly, part of that was due to the lack of crowds)

              1. re: 9lives

                Based on a thread I saw on Yelp, I dug this back up. The poster was saying that it still looked "closed, but not gone" kinda deal - anyone know what's up?

            2. Tivoli's in Malden is closed until January 9th.

              1. Hamersley's is open for New Years Eve but then I think they are closed until January 7.

                1. I noticed that Rio in Arlington Center was locked tight tonight and that there were all these phone books lying against their door. No signs at all in the windows or on the door. Are they on vacation, or......

                  1. Thanks to new Boston Hound, rovingfoodie on another thread, Hungry Mother.


                    Hungry Mother website says "Sunday January 4 - Monday January 12 : Closed for our trip down South for the SFA Taste of the South"

                    1. For a couple more days add Orinoco in Brookline and the South End.

                      "Closed from Wednesday December 31 - Thursday January 8th., 2009
                      We will reopen on Friday, January 9, 2009. Happy Holidays!"

                      1. Ken's Ramen is closed through 1/15.
