Traveler Street Hospitality Team

Since we reopened this past spring, we have strived to deliver the same level of hospitality and delicious food you know and love from Bar Mezzana, Black Lamb and Shore Leave.  We are so proud of the many challenges our team has overcome and we are incredibly grateful to our loyal friends, partners, suppliers, and guests for their ongoing encouragement and support.

Yet, despite everyone's best efforts and support from the City of Boston and the Federal Government, our businesses' revenue has plummeted, our losses have mounted, and what cash we have has dwindled.   Therefore, after service on Wednesday, December 23rd, Bar Mezzana and Black Lamb will unfortunately have to join Shore Leave in hibernating for the winter months.  It's the right decision for our employees, our guests, and our businesses so we can hope to reemerge when the time comes to do so.

One thing we know for sure is that we would not still be standing without the support of every single member of our teams - from servers to food runners, dishwashers to bussers - and we have strived to do right by our staff each step of the way since March.  

And now, we are asking for your help.  Some of our staff have already exhausted their MA UI or PUA benefits and some are not qualified to collect.  We are starting this fundraiser to support these people on our teams so that they can pay their rent, purchase food and ultimately soften the impact of this winter.

Please give what you can knowing that 100% of the funds donated will go to these employees.

With Heartfelt Thanks,
The Bar Mezzana, Shore Leave, and Black Lamb teams
