The Cambridge restaurant with the least-appetizing name has closed, according to a Facebook post by next-door neighbor Toscanini's, sharing memories of Pu Pu Hot Pot's opening day. As previously reported, Pu Pu Hot Pot is being remade into a dumpling-centric restaurant called - slightly more appetizingly - The Dumpling Room, which will also feature some Taiwanese dishes. Owners Patty Chen and Marc Shulman also run Central Square music venue All Asia, which they are planning to reopen nearby under a new name, Prospect Lounge. Pu Pu Hot Pot may be gone, but its name will forever live on in the memories of Cantabrigians and on the cover of Pu Pu Hot Pot: The World's Best Restaurant Names by Ben Busey.
