    Diner Reopens, Eddie V's Heads to Prudential Center

    by Marc Hurwitz

    Last year, we reported that a burger place with local connections was being planned for a new mixed-use development in Dorchester, and now we have learned that a few other dining spots are on their way to the place as well.

    According to an article in the Dorchester Reporter, South Bay Town Center is going to be home to Wahlburgers, J.P. Licks, MidiCi, and Gyu-Kaku, and that parts of the development will be debuting over the next couple of weeks, though no opening dates have been given for any of the dining spots as of yet. (It appears that some or all could be opening either later this year or early in 2018.) The article also mentions that a beer garden may be part of the plans as well, though no specifics have been given on that.

    Wahlburgers, which is headed up by former Dorchester residents Mark, Donnie, and Paul Wahlberg, features burgers, while J.P. Licks offers ice cream, MidiCi focuses on pizza, and Gyu-Kaku is known in part for its Japanese BBQ.

    South Bay Town Center is located by the old South Bay mall/shopping center between the Mass. Ave./Southampton Street and Columbia Road exits off the Southeast Expressway.
