A popular Greek restaurant in Watertown has closed, while its counterpart in Framingham remains open, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. The Aegean Restaurant was known for its authentic Greek dishes and family-friendly environment.
The first Aegean restaurant opened on Beacon Street in 1981 in Framingham, and the family-run business later expanded to Watertown in 2001. An employee reached at the restaurant Monday confirmed the closure of the 640 Arsenal St. location. The original Framingham restaurant, which later moved to a larger location on Route 30, remains open.
The Aegean served traditional Greek foods like lamb kabobs, souvlaki, seafood entrees, and a variety of appetizers, like stuffed grape leaves.
