Adam Rutstein, owner of Centre Street Sanctuary, stands beside his new outdoor patio space.

The restaurant anchoring Hyde Square’s newest commercial building announced it closed as of Sunday. Centre Street Sanctuary had been open about two years.

Owner Adam Rutstein broke the news to patrons via the 365 Centre St. restaurant’s Facebook page:

This winter’s never-ending snow and deep freeze have been hard on small businesses. In one recent survey, restaurants and retailers reported a nearly 50 percent drop in sales.

Jamaica Plain News has reached out to Rutstein for further comment. We also have a call in to the JP Neighborhood Development Corp., which owns the building, about whether a new tenant has been lined up.
