The Otherside is closing?

Anyone have an inside scoop as to whether they are relocating or are they closing altogether?
Closing. They may reopen if they can find a spot, but it probably won't be a clone of the original.
Quoth the GM: "We are aggressively looking to open a new place. It will obviously be quite different."
That is unfortunate. We lived closeby for years. The Otherside was (and is) only of the reasonable priced places to get a healthy lunch or breakfast in the Back Bay. The space was a little grungy, but the food was good.
I'm very sad about this, especially as it's making way for a chain furniture store. I'll miss their small but extraordinarily well-selected beer list and the Advanced BLT.
What a bummer! It was a great, reliable place to go when downtown as a vegetarian. It will be sorely missed.
Not sure where we'll go now :(
Would the Otherside be a possible tenant for one of the open spots on Petersborough Street? It would seem to be a good fit in that mix.

THIS JUST IN:
Otherside will NOT be closing, per a facebook post they put up about an hour ago, replete with assurance that it is not a joke. Apparently the deal their landlord kicked them out over didn't go through, and the closing has been called off.
Absolutely terrific news. Congrats guys!
