December 2014 Openings and Closings

MC Slim JB | Nov 20, 201409:08 PM

Official now: the Franklin Southie will close at the end of December to make way for a new place from chef and first-time owner Asia Mei, purportedly to be called Moonshine 152. I've liked Mei's food a lot at Sam's at Louis Boston, easily the best food I've been served there. Not sure what the concept is: perhaps pan-Asian.

But I'm sorry to see the Franklin Southie go. I didn't eat a lot of food there in recent years, but it was a reliable neighborhood bar with very skilled and lovable bartenders. Looks like the restaurant group is more interested in expanding the Tasty Burger concept.

Mei Mei,
Tasty Burger
