Mooyah closed

Mooyah, next to the Jackson Square T stop, looks to be an Ex-yah now. Not only was it closed this afternoon, it's been stricken from the Mooyah Web site.

The outlet opened a little more than a year ago, several months after the second Grass Fed, in Forest Hills, closed. The original Grass Fed, on Centre Street, got a new owner, but has itself been closed for several months.
