A quick-service restaurant in downtown Boston is expanding to a second spot, taking over the space where a burger place had been.
Universal Hub is reporting that Bonapita is opening in West Roxbury, moving into the former BurgerFi space on Spring Street. Based on the menu at the original location on Franklin Street, the new eatery might offer salads, stuffed pita, and bowls, all of which could include such items as black bean and beet patties, meatballs, chicken, lentils, hummus, and more.
BurgerFi closed its West Roxbury location in 2016, while its outlet near Boston University had closed for renovations the previous year and never reopened; these were the only two locations of the Florida-based chain of burger spots in the region.
The original location of Bonapita in downtown Boston opened in 2014.
The address for the upcoming location of Bonapita in West Roxbury is 77 Spring Street, West Roxbury, MA, 02132. The website for the original location can be found at http://bonapita.com/
August 24 update: Eater Boston states that Bonapita hopes to open its new outlet in West Roxbury in September.
