It looks like a Chinese restaurant has replaced an Asian fusion spot near Boston University that lasted less than two years.
According to a source (Sarah Wu), Xiang's Hunan Kitchen is now open in the former Gourmet Garden space on Commonwealth Avenue, with the name of the place indicating that it focuses at least in part on hot and spicy dishes. The restaurant appears to have opened over the past few days or so, and very little specific information has been given on it; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
Gourmet Garden opened in the spring of 2017, replacing Limoo Tea Bar, an eclectic spot that offered a mix of Asian and Middle Eastern fare.
The address for Xiang's Hunan Kitchen is 1032 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA, 02215.
