New Restaurants Could be Coming to Dudley Square in Roxbury

An historic building in the heart of Roxbury is being restored--and the people behind several restaurants in the Boston area are interested in moving in.

The Boston Globe is reporting that the Ferdinand Building in Dudley Square is going to be rehabilitated, with the plans being to bring offices, residences, a market, shops, hotels, and restaurants to the structure. Some of the businesses that are looking at the space include Bon Me, Parish Cafe, Tasty Burger, Salvatore's, and others, with the winning bidders being picked by a committee that is made up of a mix of neighborhood representatives and city officials. The article says that the renovated building is expected to open sometime next year.

The Ferdinand Building dates back to the 1880s, according to the Globe.
