New Sushi Spot Plans to Open in Former Salsa's Space in South Boston

A new restaurant may be on its way to South Boston, and it would be taking over the space where a Mexican eatery had been for nearly 20 years.

According to a licensing board page within the City of Boston website, a dining spot tentatively called Perkins Square Restaurant has applied for a liquor license to open in the former Salsa's space on Dorchester Street. The manager listed for the proposed spot is Michael Shaw, who is apparently the same Michael Shaw who is involved with Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant, Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar, and Capo (all of which are located nearby on W Broadway), so it appears that this could be a fourth restaurant from that group.

Salsa's first opened in South Boston back in the late 1990s, while a second outlet of the place opened a decade later in Hingham (both locations closed in 2015).

The address for this upcoming dining spot in South Boston is 118 Dorchester Street, South Boston, MA, 02127.

[January 11 update: Universal Hub states that Perkins Square Restaurant would be a sushi spot and that Michael Shaw of Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant, Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar, and Capo is indeed behind the place. (Shaw says the restaurant could open approximately 12 weeks after it gets the green light from the city.)]

[September 12 update: A Facebook post from Michael Shaw indicates that the upcoming sushi spot in South Boston could be close to opening, as it is now hiring chefs for the place. (Thanks to Patrick Maguire of Maguire Promotions & Hospitality Consulting for bringing this to our attention.)]
