    It looks like an Irish pub and restaurant has suddenly closed its doors after less than a year in business.

    According to a source, The Gate in the Egleston Square section of Jamaica Plain has shut down, with a real estate post seeming to confirm what our source told us--and confirming earlier chatter about its closure within the Jamaica Plain Facebook group page. There is much speculation as to why the Washington Street spot shuttered, but nothing has been completely confirmed as of yet.

    Paul Byrne of the now-closed James's Gate on McBride Street was behind The Gate, which first opened in May of 2017 and featured a mix of Irish and New American fare along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

    The address for this now-closed Irish pub and restaurant was: The Gate, 3171 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.

    March 23 update: The Jamaica Plain News has confirmed that The Gate has indeed closed for good, with Byrne now in the process of selling the restaurant. (Thanks to a source for bringing this to our attention.)
