Croma: Closed for the Season or Just Closed?

hiddenboston Feb 5, 2009 10:14 AM

Anyone know? Someone just told me that this Newbury Street restaurant is indeed closed for good, but it'd be nice to get confirmation on this.

    Their website says closed for the season...but that seems really weird

      I had read some place that Croma was looking to sell. There is no "season" on Newbury St. I don't think. I'm pissed I never got to try the sticky toffee pudding.

      There's also a 'closed for the season' sign on the Chicken Bone by Fenway, but that makes more sense.

        OT, but there is an AMAZING sticky toffee pudding, made by some one-woman shop in CT, who hand makes each one, or some such thing, at Whole Foods. I got one for TC for dessert on NYE, and he said next year, forget the rest of the stuff, and just get him that dessert!

          Not trying to be an arse, but if you go to England anytime, there are Croma locations in Manchester, Charleston, Leeds, and Prestwich. =)

        Croma is definitely up for sale.

          They were never very good......so not a surprise. There were too many better options on Newbury.

            Looks like there is now a sign on the door and on their street side menu that reads, "Pazzo Ristorante Now Hiring."
