A Japanese restaurant and sushi spot in the Back Bay of Boston has shut down.
According to a source, Snappy Sushi on Newbury Street is closed, with a note out front referring customers to Snappy Kitchen in Somerville's Davis Square, while a phone call placed to Snappy Kitchen confirms that Snappy Sushi has indeed shuttered. No specific reason has been given for the restaurant's closure, nor is it known what might be moving into the space, so stay tuned for updates.
Snappy Sushi first opened on Newbury Street approximately 15 years ago, moving to a new space on the same street in 2010; a location of Snappy Sushi had also been in Davis Square, but it also moved and reopened late last year as Snappy Kitchen.
The address for the now-closed Snappy Sushi in the Back Bay was 108 Newbury Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The Facebook page for Snappy Kitchen in Somerville can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Snappy-Kitchen-1405949796301539/
