Restaurant this afternoon, doors locked, but tables and chairs still in place.
Hyde Park Main Streets is confirming a query from Boston Restaurant Talk that the Fairmount Grille on Fairmount Avenue suddenly shut today - even before it was due to open.
The restaurant, which brought "upscale dining at affordable prices" to the neighborhood, replaced Townsend's in 2013, after the landlord changed the locks when the older restaurant stopped paying its rent.
In 2017, owner Chris Rassias began work on a new, 1920s-themed restaurant in a theater in downtown Worcester, but those plans fell through earlier this year.
