Spice of Brookline Is Now Giggling Rice
A Thai restaurant in Brookline that opened around the beginning of the year has undergone a name change, and its new name is a rather unusual one.
According to @PatrickMBoston of Maguire Promotions, Spice of Brookline on Beacon Street is now Giggling Rice, with a page on the Town of Brookline site (that appears to have been taken down) saying that the change "stems from another restaurant in Cambridge with a similar name" that "has caused some confusion with their patrons." It appears that the dining spot remains mostly the same, though a poster on Yelp says that there does appear to be a few changes made to the menu.
Spice of Brookline initially took over the space that had been vacated by Han River.
The address for Giggling Rice is 1009 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA, 02446.
