One of the busiest sections of Roxbury is in the midst of some major changes within its dining scene.
According to an article in The Bay State Banner, Tasty Burger in Roxbury's Dudley Square is apparently closing in early 2018, joining Dudley Dough, another eatery within the historic Bolling Building which shut down for good last week. The post says that both spaces may not be empty for long, however, as a new pizza spot called 119 plans to open in the Dudley Dough space with the manager of Dudley Dough also managing this spot, while the person behind the long-closed Keith's Place in Grove Hall will open a Southern-influenced restaurant called Soleil in the Tasty Burger space. In addition, an as-of-yet unnamed restaurant featuring live music is in the works for the Bolling Building as well, while a coffee shop called Ethiopian Flavor plans to open at the corner of Shawmut Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard, with that spot being run by the owner of Fasika, an Ethiopian eatery in Somerville.
The article says that 119 could open in February while Soleil plans to open sometime in 2018; it is not yet known when Ethiopian Flavor and the proposed restaurant and music spot might open.
