Woodward at Ames closes, joining ranks of recently shuttered Boston eateries

UPDATE: Eater now reports that the Rosebud may remain open longer than previously stated. Originally slating Mother’s Day — May 12 — for their last day, a representative from the Rosebud now says they will remain open for at least “the next month or so” ….and maybe longer?

ORIGINAL STORY: Another one bites the dust. Eater Boston confirmed Monday that Woodward at Ames has officially closed its doors. The downtown gastropub served its last meal Sunday, according to a hotel employee.

The Woodward joins the ranks of a crop of Boston mainstays shuttering as of late, including Rosebud Diner, the longtime Davis Square spot that hosted live music, open mics and more. According to the Somerville Patch, Marty Bloom (founder of now also defunct-Vinny T’s restaurants) has purchased the Somerville eatery and has plans for a major upgrade in the near future. Eater reports that the ‘Bud has slated May 12 (Mother’s Day) as their closing date (a good spot to take Mom out for her big day, perhaps?)

Another FiDi eatery, restaurant heavyweight Michael Schlow’s Radius, will also close its doors June 29. Schlow decided not to renew the lease on the upscale downtown restaurant, according to the Globe, but plans to open a like-minded new establishment elsewhere soon. Schlow’s seen a particularly swift turnover rate of late — most recently in the seemingly overnight transition of his Fenway restaurant Happy’s Bar and Kitchen into Mexican joint Barrio Cantina.

What does all this change mean for Boston’s dining scene? We’re hoping only bigger and better things, but only time will tell.
