Derna's in Roslindale May Become a Full-Service Restaurant and Bar

A little-known breakfast place in a Boston neighborhood might morph into a full-service dining and drinking spot, complete with a bar and a patio.

Universal Hub is reporting that Derna's in Roslindale is looking to change its concept and expand, with the South Street eatery taking over the beauty salon space next door and putting in a bar with 12 seats along with an outdoor area in the back with 48 more seats. The article mentions that the owner of Delfino, an upscale Italian restaurant across the street, had purchased both Derna's and the salon space earlier in the year.

The Boston Licensing Board will hear about the plans next week and will decide whether to approve of an all-alcohol license along with a request for a 1:00 AM closing.

The address for Derna's is 753 South Street, Roslindale, MA, 02131.
