Tatiana’s closes its doors

(Posted 5/18/15)

Family, friends and loyal customers were visiting Tatiana’s Restaurant on Market Street this weekend to say goodbye to a beloved neighborhood institution, which closed its doors for the last time Sunday.

Norma “Tati” Delgado first opened the doors in 2004, hosting their first Patriot’s Super Bowl Party. (Check out the Bars of Lynn post from this year’s Superbowl Party at Tatiana’s.)

The Super Bowl party was the first of a variety of events that have included political fundraisers, birthday parties, live music, comedy, DJ’s, Downtown Lynn Neighborhood Association parties and more. Senator Elizabeth Warren visited at least three times.

Jenkins boys on Sunday

During blizzards downtown residents would suit up and trudge down there to beat cabin fever. During elections, folks from around the city would flock there to await the results on the big screen, as they did in 2012.

Tatiana’s was a place you could bring the kids, too. Kit Jenkins of Raw Art Works has been bringing her boys since they were two and referred to Tati as another “grandmother” to them. They were there Sunday, playing pool and having the run of the place.

A new restaurant will eventually open there, but it’s too early to report specifics.

We wish Tati all the best.

From the Tatiana’s Restaurant & Lounge facebook page yesterday:

“So it’s with a heavy heart but with sigh of relief that my Mom is going to be able to rest and chill at home and Grandmother finally!!
But today is the Last day of Tatiana’s Restaurant and Lounge. My moms is closing the doors!!

She wants everyone to know she thanks you for the years of support and for all the friendships she has made!!
Stop by if your around to say bye and if you want to buy a neon or any other Tati memorabilia… Everything is for sale!! Spread the word.”

I’ll miss the only sandwich I’ve ever had at Tatiana’s – the “Supreme” was so good I couldn’t pass it up every time I walked through the doors. thanks.
