Joseph Adamo, a chef with more than 20 years experience at restaurants in Europe and the US, is looking to turn the old Spring Street Cafe on Spring Street at VFW Parkway into a new place called 320 Cafe, possibly in time for a fall opening.
A posting in the Chronicles of West Roxbury Facebook group indicates the new cafe - named for its number on Spring Street - will be open for breakfast and lunch. A filing with the state also indicates the possibility of alcohol service, although Adamo would have to buy a license on the open market since the owner of the Spring Street Cafe sold hers in February.
Workers have been busy in recent weeks re-doing the interior of the cafe, which in the past has served as a breakfast nook and a chicken-wings place.
Adamo served as executive chef at the Battery Wharf Hotel's Aragosta Bar and Bistro until this past September.
