Firebox BBQ in Bedford Has Closed; Virsa de Punjab Indian Kitchen to Replace It
One of the relatively few BBQ joints in the Greater Boston area has shut down.
According to an article within the bedford-business.com site, Firebox BBQ on Great Road is no longer in business, with an employee of the place saying that the business will be moving to Woburn where it will focus on catering and will also continue to keep its food trucks in operation. A second post from the site mentions that a new dining spot called Virsa de Punjab Indian Kitchen will move into the former Firebox space possibly by late February.
Firebox first opened its doors in the fall of 2009, taking over the space where UFood Grill had been.
The address for the now-closed Firebox BBQ (and new Virsa de Punjab Indian Kitchen) is 347 Great Road (Routes 4/225), Bedford, MA, 01730.
[May 11, 2016 update: A new post from bedford-business.com mentions that Virsa de Punjab Indian Kitchen is now open, with the restaurant focusing on Northern Indian cuisine.]
