In a potential double dose of bad news following Friday’s report that The Teacup is closing, next-door neighbor Ototo Sushi, at 7 W. Boston St., may be shuttering its doors as well.
A reader, and regular customer at Ototo was speaking with the owner on Saturday and learned that the business may close because an agreement on a lease cannot be reached. The reader reports that the owner may relocate the restaurant.
The View will find out the facts as soon as possible.
And yes, as reported on Friday, The Teacup, owned by Elisabeth Knottingham, is closing at the end of the year. Knottingham. She too could not agree on lease terms with the landlord. Knottingham will keep the website operational and use it to continue selling tea online as she has for the 10 years she has owned the business.
