Boka Tako coming to Southside

No date is mentioned in the articles.

In the biggest news to rock the H&H food scene since last week when Southbound opened, up we get word that Patrick Harris of Boka Tako fame is opening up a restaurant near Lowes on Shelia Lane. The restaurant will be going into the Brick Oven spot and be called Boka Grill and Growlers. The article makes no mention of opening date.

Richmond has the details.

Boka Grill and Growlers will open in March at 2557 Sheila Lane in the former space of a Mediterranean restaurant and market. Harris said he has a five-year lease on the 3,000-square-foot space.

In making the move across the river, Harris said he looked to at least two other groups of restaurateurs from the city that made the leap. He mentioned the opening of Southbound last month in the Stony Point Shopping Center and The Galley in Stratford Hills Shopping Center in 2012 as examples of local restaurateurs tapping into a dining scene that’s less crowded than neighborhoods like the Fan and Carytown.

“Some new restaurants have opened on the Southside,” Harris said. “It seems like the area is ready.”
