Dolma Mediterranean Cuisine Is Opening in the Former Toichi Ichiban Space in Brookline

A brand new Mediterranean restaurant is on its way to a mostly residential section of Brookline, replacing a Japanese dining spot that was in the space for a bit more than five years.

According to an article from Wicked Local, Dolma Mediterranean Cuisine is opening on Kendall Street (just south of Route 9 in the Pill Hill section of town), taking over the old Toichi Ichiban space. The post says that the new restaurant will offer a variety of Turkish and Mediterranean entrees and meze dishes, with the article mentioning salads, stuffed grape leaves, moussaka, and baklava.

Wicked Local indicates that the business partners behind Dolma have connections to other local spots, with Yesim Otsuz and Serkan Otsuz being involved with Yesim's Kitchen in Waltham and Selim Gurel owning the now-closed Angora Cafe in Brookline and Angora Ice in Chestnut Hill.

The address for Dolma Mediterranean Cuisine is 5 Kendall Street, Brookline, MA, 02445.

[March 18 update: A Facebook post from the place indicates that Dolma Mediterranean Cuisine is now open.]
