The Independent announced on Facebook that last night would be its "last for a little bit of time." The Somerville spot plans to renovate its dining room and pub, as well as revamp its menu.
Social media doesn’t indicate when the Union Square mainstay plans to reopen, though the Indo has had an anti-Valentine’s Day party planned since mid-January, suggesting it will be open by February 14. The restaurant’s answering machine, while announcing the closure, also does not provide a timeline for the renovations.
Keep an eye on the restaurant's website; a recent post hints that the site may host sneak peeks of The Indo 2.0’s interior and new menu items.
