A new restaurant is on its way to downtown Boston, taking over the space where a short-lived dining spot had been.

According to a common victualler transactions page within the city's website. Casalinga is planning to open by the corner of Blackstone Street and Hanover Street in the Haymarket area, with the address given indicating that it is moving into the former Lulu's Kitchen space. The manager listed for the upcoming eatery is Robert Santini, which may be the same person who has been involved with Casa Razdora on Water Street in the Financial District (based on information from an old article from, though this has not yet been confirmed. Little other information has been given on Casalinga, so keep checking back for updates.

Lulu's Kitchen closed its doors in April after being in business since late last fall; the person behind the place--Sandy Russo--also runs Lulu's Sweet Shoppe, a bakeshop located on Parmenter Street in the North End.

The address for this new restaurant in downtown Boston is: Casalinga, 120 Blackstone Street, Boston, MA, 02108.

Thanks to Geoff Wong for initially bringing this to our attention.

[October 17 update: According to a couple of sources (including a message sent by Adam from the Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog), Casalinga is now open, with the place appearing to be an Italian cafe that offers such items as pasta, pizza, and chicken, veal, and eggplant dishes. (Note: It looks like the address for this place is actually 151 Hanover Street rather than 120 Blackstone Street, as had previously been stated.)]
