Less than a year after reinventing their decade-old restaurant in Cambridge, Tim and Bronwyn Wiechmann have closed down Self Portrait (377 Walden St.). The duo converted the former T.W. Food into a French bistro this past April, at the time describing it as a “sequel” to its predecessor, but now the restaurant has officially closed for good, according to Boston Magazine.
A voice message reached when calling the restaurant relayed the news of the closure, per Boston Restaurant Talk, and diners trying to make a reservation on OpenTable receive the following message:
Unfortunately, we have closed Self Portrait Bistro permanently. We would like to thank everyone for their patronage over the last 10 years. We apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding! Thank you!
The changes at the now-shuttered Self Portrait brought a three-course tasting menu, a Tuesday night wine series, and a selection of French wines to the space, which the Wiechmanns first opened as T.W. Food in 2007. The Wiechmanns also operate the German-inspired beer hall Bronwyn in Union Square and briefly ran a Balkan-style sandwich shop, Playska, in Inman Square.
