Sa Pa to Expand to Cleveland Circle in Brighton
The owner of a Vietnamese restaurant in Boston's Financial District is opening a second location, with this one moving into the space in Brighton where a Thai eatery had been before moving to another section of the neighborhood.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the Banker & Tradesman site) that a new location of Sa Pa will open in Cleveland Circle, taking over the former Bangkok Bistro space (Bangkok Bistro is now located on Washington Street on the western edge of Brighton Center). There is no set date for the new spot, but it looks like it may be opening in the spring of 2014.
[April 3, 2014 update: A new post from Eater Boston mentions that Sa Pa is planning to open its new location in Brighton next month.]
[May 19, 2014 update: An email sent this morning says that the new Sa Pa in Brighton opens today at 11:00 AM.]
Sa Pa first opened on Bedford Street in downtown Boston in February, taking over the space where a location of Hot Tomatoes had been. Owner Ky Nguyen is also behind Kingston Station, which opened on nearby Kingston Street in September of 2007.
The address for this new Vietnamese restaurant in Cleveland Circle is: Sa Pa, 1952 Beacon Street, Brighton, MA, 02135. The website for the original location can be found at http://www.sa-pa.com/
