Charcoal Japanese Bistro May Be Replacing Min Sok In Brookline

It looks like a new Japanese restaurant might open in Brookline, and it could be replacing another spot that has featured Korean and Japanese food since opening about three years ago.

According to a planning board meeting page on the Town of Brookline website, a meeting will take place next week to discuss the installation of signs, an awning, and a patio at the location of the upcoming Charcoal Japanese Bistro. The new restaurant is apparently moving into the Harvard Street space between Coolidge Corner and Brookline Village where Min Sok has been since the summer of 2007. (Zoe's was located in this spot before Min Sok, and before that, Shalom Hunan.)

As soon as we receive more information on the possible opening of Charcoal Japanese Bistro, we will post an update here.

If all goes as planned, the address for this upcoming restaurant in Brookline would be: Charcoal Japanese Bistro, 92 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446.

Thanks to Brookline Patch for initially bringing this to our attention.

[July 14, 2011 update: According to a poster on Chowhound, Charcoal Japanese Bistro might not be opening in the former Min Sok space after all, as it appears that a day care center may be moving there (a document within the Town of Brookline website seems to back this up). In addition, a check on the Charcoal Japanese Bistro Facebook page indicates that the page hasn't been updated in about a year. If/when we receive more updates, we will post them here.]
