Obosa Restaurant Is Opening in Roslindale

A West African restaurant is on its way to a Boston neighborhood that saw its only West African eatery move away five years ago.

According to a post from Universal Hub, Obosa is going to be opening in Roslindale, with the Belgrade Avenue dining spot taking over the space where a number of other restaurants have been, including Rustica Pizza, Prime Time Pizza & Subs, Arbri Cafe, Boston Brickhouse, and Cafe Apollonia. The article says that the 49-seat eatery will be run by Gloria Omoregbee and that it will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM, though it is not yet known what dishes might be on its menu, so stay tuned for updates.

As Universal Hub indicates, a Nigerian restaurant called Suya Joint moved from Roslindale to Dudley Square (now Nubian Square) in Roxbury, with the Roslindale location shutting down in early 2015 and the Roxbury location opening in early 2016.

The address for Obosa in Roslindale is 146 Belgrade Avenue, Roslindale, MA, 02131.
