Mei Mei Street Kitchen to Open Brick-and-Mortar Restaurant in Audubon Circle
Last month we reported that a food truck that features Chinese fare was thinking of opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant somewhere in the Boston area. Now we have learned that this will indeed be happening, with the dining spot opening near the Boston/Brookline border.
Based on information from a Twitter conversation last night, Mei Mei Street Kitchen has signed a lease for a restaurant in the Audubon Circle section of Boston. A map posted within a blog entry from Mei Mei indicates that the permanent dining spot may be located by the corner of Park Drive and Buswell Street (about two blocks north of Beacon Street), though we are still trying to confirm an exact location. Expect the new restaurant to open sometime in the late spring or early summer.
[February 21 update: A Twitter post from @TheDrewStarr indicates that Mei Mei is moving into the space where Giga's Pizza is, which jibes with the location mentioned above (at the corner of Park Drive and Buswell Street).]
[May 7 update: A Boston Globe article on Roxy's Grilled Cheese's plans to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant mentions that Mei Mei plans to open its brick-and-mortar spot in late June.]
The Mei Mei Street Kitchen food truck started out in Boston in April of 2012, offering Chinese-American dishes using locally-sourced ingredients. Their website can be found at http://meimeiboston.com/
