A burger restaurant in Jamaica Plain that closed in early 2018 with promises to renovate and reopen under new ownership has finally done so. Grass Fed has been rebranded as the Joint (605 Centre St., Boston), run by Socrates Abreu of local Mexican chain Chilacates. The revamped restaurant made its debut over the weekend.
Grass Fed first opened in 2012 was known for its burgers, boozy milkshakes, and more. Founder Krista Kranyak Chalfin of farm-to-table restaurant Ten Tables (597 Centre St.) previously operated two Grass Fed locations in the neighborhood; one near the Forest Hills MBTA station closed in 2017, and the Centre Street restaurant shuttered in February 2018 to allow for the transition to new ownership.
Abreu previously stated that he didn’t plan on making changes to Grass Fed. The name is different and the space is a bit different, but the Joint carries on the burger tradition set by Grass Fed. Social media posts from opening weekend also show fries, burritos, beer, and cocktails.
The restaurant operated dine-in only for its first weekend; keep an eye out for updates regarding hours, takeout, and menu details via the Joint’s Instagram account.
