Two Shrewsbury Street restaurants have announced temporary closures this month due to coronavirus restrictions: Meze Estiatorio and Brew City Grill & Brew House.

Brew City ownership cited increased COVID-19 cases and restaurant capacity restrictions.

The temporary closure began on Sunday, according to a Facebook post announcing the change.

Management underscored the closure would be temporary, but did not say when the restaurant might reopen.

“A very special THANK YOU to everyone, for your continued support through these challenging times. Once again, this is just a **TEMPORARY** hibernation, and we look forward to seeing all of you when we re-open,” the message read.

Meze Estiatorio, in turn, announced its closure on Jan. 14. 

"Due to dining restrictions making it difficult for us to continue to operate as usual, we have made the decision to remain closed until March with an exact date TBD in the near future," the restaurant wrote in a Facebook post. "Thank you for your continued support during these trying times!"

Restaurants are currently limited to 25% of their indoor seating capacity, not including staff, under state regulations meant to help curb the spread of COVID-19. The limits were put in place on Dec. 26 and will remain in place until Sunday unless Gov. Charlie Baker alters or extends them.
