Happy Thursday! Is this week over yet? In better news, if you're in Boston and you're hungry--we've got an awesome new dining experience for you to try! As an upgrade to the Innovation and Design Building, this trendy food court was born and you will have to try it out. Check out these former food trucks' new digs as they 'ship' up to Boston.
After months of waiting, Mei Mei began serving customers Monday from its newest location inside a 160-square-foot shipping container kiosk on the waterfront. Mei Mei’s new spot, called Mei Mei by Design, was originally slated to open at the Innovation and Design Building in late September. The delay was due to license, inspection, and permit requirements, said restaurant co-owner, Mei Li.
The kiosks are part of a $100 million in upgrades to the Innovation and Design Building. Mei Mei joins Triangle Coffee and Jubali, which have already opened their shipping container kiosks. What's even more exciting? Additional shipping container kiosks will open within the next couple weeks, including one of our absolute favorites--Roxy's Grilled Cheese--which will open this Thursday. We are so excited for Roxy's who have been expanding and growing since their stint on The Great Food Truck Race. Awesome to see locals crushing the industry!
Mei Mei, Triangle Coffee, Jubali, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, and Yankee Lobster Co. will make up a mini food court on the northern edge of the building. Other businesses slated to set up shop in the kiosks include Niche Urban Garden Supply, Drydock Exchange, and the hair salon Cut-Splice. The kiosks will be open year-round and the space will offer indoor and outdoor seating. We are hoping to get over there before snowfall.
Hungry? Devour the details of these shipping container kiosks next time you're in Boston!
