What places are having to stay closed in Marathon aftermath?

Can we compile a list of the restaurants and other stores that are unable to operate during the forensic investigation, so that perhaps we can give them extra business once they re-open, to help offset their financial losses?

      1. I love your greyhounder! I had two myself!

        Just in case anyone is headed there (and I hope not) the Berkeley St entrance to Fire and Ice is not closed.

        Every restaurant on Boylston from Berkeley to Mass Ave (I think) is closed. But the perimeter is likely to change soon.

        The Eater list is only partial.

        I'll add:
        The burger places
        Both Thai places (Chili Duck and the one across from the library right by the bomb site name I cant remember)

        Dillons, Whiskey's, Back bay Social Club

            Tnx. Not that I havent walked by it ten million times.

            The crime scene map suggests that places like Jaffa and Brasserie Jo might be closed, but I havent been down that way at all.

              Looks like the closed-off crime scene area is starting to shrink. NECN reports that Belvidere and Dalton Streets have reopened, as has Boylston between Hereford St and Mass Ave. That makes it (theoretically) possible for a number of restaurants (e.g., Summer Shack, Bukowski Tavern, Dillon's) to reopen.

                That must be why the closure map came off an hour ago

                    The perimeter was bigger when I left work about a half hour ago (went to Berkely) but maybe they'll move it in soon.

                    Jaffa still looks off limits.

                Brasserie JO is open; as a matter of fact I've got a pre-symphony reservation there for tomorrow night which was confirmed via email today.

          2. The food trucks at Copley in front of the library and near the corner of Clarendon and Boylston street have not been able to use the spots they rented.

            Today Stuart Street opened and Roxy, Boston Super dog (Speed's) and Mei Mei were there. Today's choice one of Gregg's great grilled pastrami sandwiches.

            And, the food trucks at the Christian Science Fountain (Belvidere street) were allowed back in their spots today.
