Zest Mediterranean Grill Opens in Boston's Back Bay

A new Mediterranean restaurant has opened on the western edge of Boston's Back Bay, replacing a location of a hot dog spot that closed this spring.

A Twitter post from Drew Starr mentions that Zest Mediterranean Grill is now open on Boylston Street, taking over the former Spike's Junkyard Dogs spot (Spike's has since consolidated operations to their location on Brighton Avenue in Allston). Based on Drew's post as well as a review within the Yelp site, it looks like Zest is a quick-service spot that offers shawarma and falafel, with dishes made via what the Yelp poster says is "a Chipotle-style assembly line."

The address for this new restaurant in the Back Bay is: Zest Mediterranean Grill, 1076 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02115.
