Goodbye To Upstairs On The Square
Upstairs on the Square is a bit of a Harvard Square institution.
It’s known for good food and friendly service, as well as its lavishly decorated rooms with green and deep purple walls. Large mirrors reflect the chandeliers and — during this holiday season — there’s a generously decorated Christmas tree on the bar.
For the past 31 years , owners Mary Catherine Deibel and Deborah Hughes have been welcoming diners in Harvard Square — first at Upstairs at the Pudding, and then at Upstairs on the Square.
But on New Year’s Eve the restaurant will serve its last meal. So we paid a visit to say goodbye.
