Kosher Hotel and Restaurant May Be Coming to West Roxbury
It looks like a Boston neighborhood could become home to a kosher hotel and restaurant--and it may be the first of several (or more) such places.
Universal Hub is reporting that developer Nissim Shimon Trabelsi is looking to open what would apparently be called the King David Hotel in West Roxbury, with the spot opening on the VFW Parkway by the Dedham line. The article says that the 69-room hotel would have a glatt-kosher restaurant along with "his and hers mikvah baths," a swimming pool, and a ballroom. Trabelsi is also in talks with several hotel management companies with the plan being to make the West Roxbury spot the first of a chain of kosher hotels and restaurants.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority has not yet scheduled a vote on the hotel and restaurant, according to UH.
It appears that the address for the proposed King David Hotel would be 1650 VFW Parkway, West Roxbury, MA, 02132.
