Dear Friends and Neighbors,

After 17 wonderful years we decided to closed Zebra’s Bistro in July of 2016 to focus on a new project. We are proud that Zebra’s became the most highly awarded restaurant in Metro West Boston and even more grateful for all the friends we made here at Zebra’s.

Thank you,
Janet & Craig Neubecker

DiscoverOur Story

Your Neighborhood Bistro
When we moved out the suburbs the things we missed the most were our neighborhood restaurant in the South End. So, in 1999 we opened Zebra’s Bistro to bring the spirit and personality of the independent restaurants in the trendy city neighborhoods out the metro west suburbs. Our goal remains the same: unpretentious, comfortable, with unsurpassed quality. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor as much as we do.
