Roxy's Grilled Cheese Is Opening a Brick-and-Mortar Restaurant in Allston

In January, we mentioned that the owner of the Roxy Grilled Cheese food trucks was planning to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant somewhere in the Boston area. Now we have been able to confirm this, and we also know exactly where the restaurant will be.

The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting that James DiSabatino of Roxy's Grilled Cheese has signed a lease for a permanent location of his eatery at 485 Cambridge Street in Allston, which is where North Beacon Street and Brighton Avenue meet (a few blocks west of the heart of Allston Village). The article says that the new spot could be open sometime in the fall.
