Cafe Polonia Closing Up Salem Location
Cafe Polonia is closing its location in downtown Salem.
Pretty soon, Cafe Polonia fans will have to drive to Boston to get their pierogi fix.
The Eastern-European and Polish restaurant's downtown Salem location will be closing its doors sometime in the next few weeks, owner Darek Barcikowski said Tuesday.
We reported earlier this morning that the cafe would be closing at the end of the month, though that information, which we received from an employee Monday morning, was incorrect, according to Barcikowski.
Cafe Polonia specializes in dishes such as cabbage and beet soup, goat cheese salad, herring, dumplings, pierogis and kielbasa.
The restaurant's location on Dorchester Avenue in Boston will remain open.
Barcikowski said he is in the process of selling the restaurant space and expects to close his doors sometime before the end of February - though a specific date has not yet been set.
