Morrell's BBQ May Open Restaurant and Jazz Club in Former LaStoria Space in Stoughton
The person behind a food truck that focuses on BBQ could be opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant and music spot in the space where an Italian eatery had been.
According to a source, Morrell Presley of Morrell's BBQ currently has his truck set up in the parking lot of the now-closed LaStoria Italian Bar & Grill in Stoughton, with the source telling us that a barbecue spot could be opening in the restaurant space there. A Facebook post on the Stoughton News page seems to confirm this, saying that "If you love BBQ & Jazz, you'll love that Morrell Presley's Barbecue, which has most recently been located in a truck outside the Sons of Italy Hall, has found a new home. The family plans to renovate the former Lastoria site, and make it into a barbecue restaurant and jazz club!" The Morrell's food truck offers such items as ribs, brisket, pulled pork, burgers, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, and more; it is not known if the brick-and-mortar would have a similar menu or if more options might be added..
LaStoria was a regional Italian restaurant that opened approximately 20 years ago; the place closed its doors for good this summer.
The address for the upcoming barbecue restaurant and jazz club from Morrell's is 577 Washington Street (Route 138), Stoughton, MA, 02072.
