Universal Hub, the greatest community website outside of Wellesley, reports that the attorney for the owner of a shuttered Jamaica Plain bar called Tonic says he is in promising talks with owners of the The Wok restaurant on Rte. 9 in Wellesley that could result in the Chinese restaurant opening a location there.
[Attorney] Quilty said he’s more optimistic about current negotiations with the owners of the Wok – a Chinese restaurant on Rte. 9 that is similar to Brookline’s Mandarin Gourmet. If the deal does go through, the new eatery – next door to an existing Chinese takeout place – would be the first sit-down Chinese restaurant in Boston’s southwest corner in years.
Wok owners Hon Pui and Carol Chan have run their restaurant in Wellesley since 1978, according to the restaurant’s website. A sister restaurant in Nantucket is listed on The Wok website, but restaurant review websites indicate it is no longer open.
The space available in Jamaica Plain is nearby the Forest Hills T station.
