Crave - Mad for Chicken to Open in Boston

A new restaurant may be on its way to the Chinatown neighborhood of Boston, and based on its name, it could be part of a group of Korean fried chicken places with locations in New York and New Jersey.

According to a Twitter post from @cleokid, Crave - Mad for Chicken is looking to open in the Kneeland Street space where Enso Sushi had been until closing last month. The work permit shows that the proposed eatery might have a counter station, sushi bar, and dining area, though little other information is given on the permit or anywhere online at this point in time. It appears possible that Crave - Mad for Chicken is part of the same group of fried chicken places that has locations in Manhattan, Flushing (Queens), and Bergenfield, NJ, but this has not been confirmed as of yet.

[February 13 update: Based on a new Twitter photo from @cleokid, the upcoming Crave - Mad for Chicken in Chinatown is indeed part of the group of Korean fried chicken spots found in New York and New Jersey.]

[July 21 update: Eater Boston states (via a Facebook post from the restaurant) that Crave - Mad for Chicken is having its grand opening tomorrow in Chinatown.]

Enso was a conveyor-belt sushi spot that first opened in the space in December of 2012.
