Addis Red Sea in Boston's South End Is Up for Sale

An Ethiopian restaurant in Boston's South End that has been in business for more than a quarter century is on the market.

According to a source (Aaron Gong), Addis Red Sea on Tremont Street is up for sale, with a couple of listings (including a listing on the Castles Unlimited site) confirming this, saying that the business/space is indeed for sale at a price of $300,000. The listing indicates that the space is being sold "as is" and "as sold" and that existing fixtures and equipment are part of the deal, and the restaurant's existing beer and license is also mentioned as well. [Ed note: Listing no longer up as of April 26, 2016.]

Addis Red Sea, which first opened in the late 1980s, also had a location on Mass. Ave. in Cambridge, though that spot closed in 2013 after being open for only a brief amount of time. The original South End eatery has been featured on our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants), with the review being at the link below:

The address for Addis Red Sea is 544 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
