Soju Is Open; Sam for Bread Café Is Coming

John Francis | Jun 11, 2005 11:08 PM

Soju is a Pan-Asian eatery at 145 Atlantic Ave., the space once occupied by La Bouillabaisse but vacant for a couple of years. ("Soju" is also a Korean sweet potato vodka.) The owner is said to be Diane DiMeo of Neighborhood Kitchen on Court Street. It's been open a couple of weeks but I haven't eaten there yet. Looking in the window, it's an attractive, dark-wood-finished place with a large bar and some space around the tables. The menu has points of interest.

The crummy luncheonette at 333 Henry St. (corner of Pacific Street) closed a good while ago and now there's a sign in the window saying "Sam for Bread Café coming soon." The S in Sam is a saxophone, and the furnishings now piled up inside include small round tables that are more suitable for drinks (whether coffee or booze) than eats. Can it be that a jazz club is about to open there? Not a good location for that kind of place, I'd think. We'll see.
