    A cult favorite that has been seen as one of the Boston area's true destination spots over the past decade or so is closing its doors.

    According to an article in The Boston Globe, Strip-T's in Watertown is shutting down after more than 30 years in business, with owner Paul Maslow saying of the School Street restaurant, "Business is just not consistent....It's kind of impossible to know why. Everybody has theories." The post mentions that the space is now on the market and that Maslow had let his staff known after he made the decision to shutter, with some already leaving while others likely staying until the final day. (It does not appear that there is an official closing date as of yet.)

    Strip-T's first opened in 1986 and was a little-known neighborhood cafe at first, but in 2011, Maslow's son Tim came on board and helped transform the place into one of the best-known restaurants in the entire Boston area.

    The address for Strip-T's is 93 School Street, Watertown, MA, 02472. Its website can be found at
