A kosher supermarket that was forced to close on July 12 after a fire damaged the store will take up temporary residence in a shuttered kosher restaurant and deli just down the road.
The Butcherie has been selling some of its products out of Cafe Eilat and Catering by Andrew while working on repairs, but the market will now move into Rubin’s Restaurant at 500 Harvard St., where it will sell meat, dairy, and more for the duration of the month, according to Universal Hub.
Rubin’s closed suddenly on August 5 after nearly 90 years in business. The Boston Globe noted that the restaurant’s owners sold the place to an investor who is working on negotiations with operators to reopen. In the meantime, The Butcherie will keep the space warm until repairs are complete down the road at 428 Harvard St.
