Lotus Xpress Is Opening in East Somerville
It looks like a new Asian restaurant is on its way to East Somerville.
A post on the East Somerville Main Streets Facebook page indicates that Lotus Xpress will be opening on Broadway, moving into the space where KFC used to be. The website for Lotus Xpress is now up, with their menu showing mostly Taiwanese and Chinese fare, but there are also Thai, Tibetan, Mongolian, and Japanese dishes as well.
It appears that Lotus Xpress could be open by September, according to East Somerville Main Streets.
[December 3 update: An email from one of the owners of Lotus Xpress mentions that the new restaurant should be opening within the next month. In addition, the menu is still being worked on, and it will be a bit different from the menu that we had seen earlier (see above note). Finally, Lotus Xpress will be a quick-casual spot with no table service.]
[February 20, 2013 update: Eater Boston reports that Lotus Xpress is now open.]
The address for this new restaurant in East Somerville is: Lotus Xpress, 167 Broadway, Somerville, MA, 02145.
