A new restaurant may be on its way to East Boston, and if its name is any indication, it looks like it could be a fusion spot.
According to a Boston Licensing Board hearing page, Mexicali Sushi Bar is looking to open on Sumner Street in Maverick Square, with the hearing notice stating that the proposed eatery would have two seating areas and possible opening hours of 9:00 AM to 2:00 AM, with the manager being Roberto Trujillo. No other information has been given on the spot as of yet, but it is possible that sushi burritos could be at least one of the offerings at the restaurant based on its name. (Sushi burritos are an increasingly hot trend in the area and can currently be found at such places as Yoki Express in Boston's Seaport District, Love Art Sushi near where the Back Bay and the Fenway meet, OGinger and Pokeworks in Somerville's Davis Square, and Poke City near Cambridge's Porter Square.)
The address for this proposed restaurant in Maverick Square is: Mexicali Sushi Bar, 191-201 Sumner Street, East Boston, MA, 02128.
