Fairmount Grille on Fairmount Avenue

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.

Agawam Diner in Rowley

We headed north today to get some July Fourth clam stuff at the Clam Box, but the line was way too long for certain hungry members of the family, so instead we went to the Agawam Diner (conveniently located at the intersection of routes 1 and 133), where the specials include American Chop Suey on Tuesdays, boiled dinner on Thursdays, hamburg plates all the time and your choice of tonics (extra large is just $2.25) and frappes. If the food is too much, the waitress will offer you a Market Basket bag to carry out your leftovers. If you go, bring cash - credit cards not accepted.
