UPDATE: Teranga Restaurant in Boston's South End Reopening After Being Seized by the State

[Ed note: This article was updated on Friday, December 2 to reflect the fact that the restaurant is opening back up again.]

A South End dining spot that is the only one of its kind in Boston is reopening after being shut down by the state.

According to a source, Teranga Restaurant was closed early this week with an orange "seized" sign in the window, with photos sent to us showing that the Washington Street eatery was shut down for nonpayment of taxes and is now in the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. A note on Friday from CBH Communications, however, indicates that the restaurant is opening back up again, apparently this evening, though definitely this weekend.

Teranga first opened in 2009, bringing to the South End the first (and only) Senegalese dining spot in the city of Boston. Its menu includes such items as fish cakes, lamb stew, grilled tilapia, skewered cubes of filet mignon, and fried millet donuts.,

The address for Teranga Restaurant is 1746 Washington Street, Boston, MA 02118. Its website can be found at http://www.terangaboston.com/

i understand and believe completely that not paying taxes is a shame, but how is that anyone else's business? my view might differ from others but i think that's a personal matter that should be dealt with by the restaurant....embarrassing and i hope this awesomely great restaurant comes back stronger as they are genuinely great people who offer delicious food in generous portions. I'm not associated with them but am a business owner in the south end

my above comment is not directed toward you and it was meant to be respectful to the dept. of rev. but i think the bright orange sign they posted on the front window is sort of like public shaming....maybe I'm biased because they are nice people but i think this is something that we should find out about through research or a site like this which focuses on Boston area restaurants but not on the front window of the rest..... please tell me if you think I'm confused or wrong with this one...goodnight
