    It looks like a restaurant just north of Boston has shut down after approximately five years in business, though it is not known exactly what will become of the space.

    According to two sources within the restaurant industry, JW's in Winthrop is closed, with at least one Facebook comment on its page indicating that the Putnam Street spot has indeed shut down; a check on its website shows that it seems to be down this morning, and phone calls go to voicemail with the message saying that the mailbox is full. We have not been able to find out exactly why the place has closed, nor do we know if it could reopen at some point, so stay tuned for updates.

    JW's first opened in 2014 and changed ownership a couple of years later, and we've been told that it may have gone through another ownership change of late as well; the restaurant offered mostly a mix of New American and Italian fare.

    The address for JW's is 10 Putnam Street, Winthrop, MA, 02152. Its website can be found at http://jwswinthrop.com/
