It looks like a French bistro in Cambridge has closed after only being in business for approximately a half year.
According to a source who got in touch yesterday afternoon, Self Portrait on Walden Street in the Huron Village neighborhood appears to be shut down, with a message from Bronwyn in Somerville's Union Square (which is affiliated with the restaurant) saying last night that Self Portrait was actually still in operation. An article from Boston Magazine today, however, states that it has indeed shuttered while a voicemail from the dining spot seems to confirm this, saying that it is permanently closed. Ed note: A couple of calls also went to another voicemail that explained how to make reservations, but this could just be a possible bug in the voicemail system.
Self Portrait first opened in April of this year, taking over the space where T.W. Food had been. Both Self Portrait and T.W. Food were run by Bronwyn and Tim Wiechmann, as is Bronwyn in Somerville along with the now-closed Playska in Cambridge's Inman Square.
The address for the now-closed Self Portrait was 377 Walden Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
