In news that will delight Franklin Avenue's foodies, the fan-dam-tastic Mexican restaurateurs of Chavella's have inked a deal to take over the space at the northwest corner of Franklin and Sterling, formerly the J&B Deli Restaurant. Sure, it's only a few blocks from their current place, but I have no doubt whatsoever that their new franchise will do a thriving business.
I'm also hearing through the grapevine that we may be getting a Middle Eastern place on the Avenue in one of the vacant storefronts between Eastern and Park sometime soon. More to come on that.
