JP cafe that only recently re-opened has re-shut again

Caffe Aromi in Hyde Square, which re-opened in November after being shut for three years, has already closed, disappointed members of the Jamaica Plain Facebook group report.

But at a month, it stayed open twice as long as the fabled Pink Samurai dumpling place on Centre Street, whose owners spent a year getting it ready, then shut it down after just two weeks.

Meanwhile, way further down Centre Street in West Roxbury, Red-Eyed Pig, a barbecue takeout place, apparently could not withstand the competition from Blue Ribbon in Dedham, and shut down recently as well.



Any news on Grassfed?

I heard Chilacates was going to open in the Grass Fed location but that was some time ago.

On Cafe Aromi..., come on, Mordi. Give us a break. Put a live business in there to make up for losing Bella Luna. You don’t care that we lost a good place to eat for an empty store front. If you were living in Hyde Square, you’d be disgusted, too.

We may soon pine for the good old days when the Hyde Square sites were merely empty.

My understanding is Chilcates will own it, but menu will be burgers and very similar to what GF had going on in there.

They had lots of competition in that block with burritos and thai and Vietnamese and pizza. I hate to see places go under when the owners put so much time and effort into trying to make it succeed.

Isn’t that where the weed spot is going? Or next door?
