Little Rose and Rosita to Open in Former Kamakura Space in Downtown Boston

A well-known local chef and restaurateur is opening a dining spot and bar in the heart of Boston, and it will be taking over the space where a Japanese restaurant had been.

According to an article from Boston Magazine, Michael Serpa (Select Oyster Bar, Grand Tour) is planning to open Little Rose in the Kamakura space on State Street along the northern edge of the city's Financial District, with a rooftop bar called Rosita opening there as well. The post mentions that the setup for Little Rose will include a counter-service burrito spot at street level and a full-service dining room on the second level that offers such items as tacos and quesadillas, while the more "swank" Little Rose will be a tequila and mezcal bar set up within a seventh-floor rooftop space (accessed by an elevator) that offers ceviches and more from its snack-based menu. No specific opening date has been given as of yet for Little Rose and Rosita, but the hope is for it to open sometime in 2021.

Serpa is also working on another new restaurant called Atlantico, which will be a seafood spot in the former Southern Proper space on Harrison Avenue in the South End.
