Ghost Pepper Taqueria to Open in Dorchester's Savin Hill Neighborhood

It looks like a Mexican restaurant is on its way to a space just above the Southeast Expressway.

According to a licensing board hearing page within the City of Boston website, Ghost Pepper Taqueria is planning to open in Dorchester, moving into a space within a condo complex on Savin Hill Avenue that is also home to Savin Bar & Kitchen. An earlier article mentioned that a new restaurant from the people behind Savin Bar & Kitchen would be going into a formerly empty space facing the Expressway that locals called the "Savin Hill Hole," and it appears that this is indeed the dining spot that will be moving in there.

The notice also says that Savin Bar & Kitchen is petitioning to change its name slightly, to Savin Hill Bar & Kitchen.

The address given for Ghost Pepper Taqueria and Savin Bar & Kitchen is 112-120 Savin Hill Avenue.

[May 24 update: Eater Boston states that Ghost Pepper Taqueria will have seating for 100 and a U-shaped bar within the space, with the plan being to open sometime over the summer. (Eater also says that the exact address is 116 Savin Hill Avenue.)]

[September 30 update: A Facebook post indicates that Ghost Pepper Taqueria soft-opens around the middle of this week.]

[October 2 update: A message sent from the restaurant indicates that Ghost Pepper Taqueria is now open.]
