One of Boston's best-known restaurants is shutting down this weekend.
An email sent today from the dining spot confirms what a source told us earlier today, that Tapeo in the Back Bay is closing, with the note saying that the Newbury Street dining spot will shutter on Sunday, January 14. The email says that the reason for the closure is because of lease negotiations that were unsuccessful due at least in part to a rent increase.
Tapeo, which has been in business for 22 years, is known for its tapas, Spanish wines, and more. The Solea Group, which runs Tapeo, also operates Kika Tapas in Cambridge and Solea Restaurant & Tapas Bar in Waltham.
The address for Tapeo is 266 Newbury Street, Boston, MA, 02116. Its website can be found at http://bostontapas.com/
