Route 9 Restaurant Closes Its Doors

The restaurant is the first Framingham business to close in 2013.

Top Shelf Restaurant has served its last meal.

The owners announced the restaurant's closing on its Facebook page: "To all our customers, we regret to inform you that we have had to close effective 1/1/2013."

The owners wrote "Due to extraordinary town fees and regulations, as well as these economic times, it has made it impossible for us to continue. We continue to look for investors that may allow us to return. We thank you all for your business over the past 2 years and hope some day, to serve you once again."

Framingham natives Adam and Jamie Sinewitz along with their father Gary had opened Top Shelf Restaurant in 2011, in the former site of Bronzetti's Pizzeria.

Another success story for Time Magazine's Man of the Year... "Due to extraordinary town fees and regulations, as well as these economic times". All you fools who voted in the cast of Democrats err Deviants into office get what you deserve. Going on 5-years and the government gets bigger, it taxes us more, and businesses and people fail. But isn't he wonderful! Bet you were smoking your medicinal Mary Jane before the law went into effect. Pass the bong and keep it low.

You're easily fooled. The place was already in financial trouble before this.

So much for the party of personal responsibility. Lets see. Bad location, risky buisness in general (how many new restaurants actually succeed), but it must all be Obama's fault.
