    Frozen Hoagies is Opening a New Location

    The future of a comfort food restaurant in Allston is up in the air, as the space in which it resides is on the market.

    A brochure for "417-433 Cambridge Street" that was tweeted by @allstonratcity indicates that the property housing Lulu's is up for sale, with the executive summary within the brochure saying that it is "a premier redevelopment opportunity with strong in-place income...for sale or proposals for a joint-venture redevelopment of the property." The summary goes on to state that "While there is significant development value in 417-433 Cambridge Street, it is also advantageously leased to a diverse selection of retail tenants, providing investors with a return on their capital before and during the development process." At this point in time, it is not known exactly what will happen to the space where Lulu's resides, nor is it known when any redevelopment could happen, so for now, it appears that the restaurant will continue in operation.

    Lulu's first opened in June of 2014 in the space where Cafe Brazil had been; the restaurant offers such items as salsa tots, warm pretzel rolls, deviled eggs, wild game chili, short rib mac and cheese, pork chops, grilled flank steak, pulled pork sandwiches, and more.

    The address for Lulu's is 421 Cambridge Street, Allston, MA, 02134. Its website can be found at
