Mission Hill’s Grub — a nearly year-old sibling to Penguin Pizza — will close its doors for good this weekend, according to Boston Restaurant Talk and confirmed by a post on the restaurant’s Instagram account. A manager from the restaurant told Eater that the business has been sold but that it isn’t clear what the new owner’s intentions are.
Penguin Pizza owner Dermot Doyne opened Grub across the street last December. The restaurant’s menu consists of a variety of poutines and sandwiches, along with a number of items offered on Sunday for brunch.
According to a manager at the restaurant, some of those menu items — namely the Hot Chick, which is a buttermilk-brined fried chicken sandwich with spicy pickles and Sriracha mayo — will make their way onto the menu at Penguin Pizza.
Grub will shutter officially on Sunday, October 29. Until then, the business hours will remain the same as usual, including Sunday brunch: 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
