SOMERVILLE (CBS) – The original Mount Vernon Restaurant in Somerville is an institution. It has been around for nearly eighty years.

But the restaurants in Lynnfield and Revere just opened in the past several years, and now they are closing.

The owner, Martin Henry, tells WBZ they had to close up because the economy is so bad.
