Even as some Natick and area restaurants celebrate newfound freedom to serve meals outdoors, the Common Cafe & Kitchen has announced it is closing.
“We tried hard but could not survive the epidemic,” the eatery’s owners posted on social media Wednesday night, expressing their sadness at delivering the news.
The eclectic restaurant, which has been a cafe during the morning and day, and a Persian kabab fest for lunch and dinner, resided at the former Bakery on the Common space at the corner of South Main Street and Pond Street across from Natick Common. The owners mixed things up, offering open mic nights and jazz, too.
We even crossed the border from Wellesley a few years back to review it, after hearing good things.
