Formerly located at 1280 Massachusetts Avenue, Grafton Street relocated in June of 2002. The relocation afforded owners Patrick Lee, Peter Lee, Gerry Sheerin and Sean Kennedy a much larger floor plan with enhanced views of the Square, and only a block away from the original site.The 5,000 square foot space revels in tones of cream, beige and brown, complemented by black trim, yielding what is a well — designed but inherently relaxed space.

During the summer months, guests can enjoy al fresco dining on Grafton Street’s spacious sidewalk patio. The restaurant offers full bar service and boasts a seasonally-changing wine list, as well as a robust selection of craft beers from several local breweries

Well-placed drapes and unique table arrangements enable diners to have a relatively private experience in the midst of the lively restaurant. Perhap the most notable source of Grafton Street’s pulse are the French doors> spanning the front of the restaurant, allowing the vibrancy of Harvard Square to emanate throughout the restaurant
