A short-lived restaurant in the Harvard Square section of Cambridge that featured shareable plates has shut down.
Eater Boston is reporting that En Boca on Holyoke Street unexpectedly closed for good this past weekend, with a message telling diners who had made reservations via OpenTable that "The restaurant is saddened to notify their guests that today was their last day of operation. They have had to close permanently very suddenly and will not be able to honor your upcoming reservation." At this point in time, it is not known why the restaurant shuttered, nor is it known what might happen to the space; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
En Boca opened its doors last fall, featuring Mediterranean small plates along with beer, wine, and cocktails. The people behind the dining spot also run The Asgard in Cambridge's Central Square and The Kinsale by City Hall Plaza in Boston. (Sandrine's Bistro had previously been in the space where En Boca had been.)
The address for this now-closed restaurant in Harvard Square was: En Boca, 8 Holyoke Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
