A Somerville restaurant that specialized in Caribbean cuisine closed down at the end of last month. Some ‘Ting Nice announced the news on its Facebook page, letting the neighborhood know it would shutter at 561 McGrath Hwy.
“We have been honored to serve you for the past 4 years,” the message posted towards the end of August read. “As of the end of this month Some Ting Nice Caribbean Restaurant will be closing.”
However, the closing of this location might not be the end of the line for Some ‘Ting Nice: “We will provide updates in the near future,” the goodbye post teases.
Some ‘Ting Nice served a wide range of dishes from appetizers like codfish fritters, plantain chips, and assorted meat and vegetable patties, to salads, seafood entrees with sides, and jerk-seasoned chicken, goat, and ox tail. Sides included roasted plantains, steamed vegetables, cassava flat bread, and dumplings, among other items. As co-owner Susan Puckerin told Eater shortly before the restaurant’s 2013 opening, the aim was to serve a little bit from every part of the Caribbean, highlighting signature dishes of different islands.
