Chinese Mirch, which offers a menu with Indian-accented Chinese dishes, is prepping a location at 251 Massachusetts Ave.
The small New York-based chain, which already has an outlet in Framingham, goes before the Boston Licensing Board on Wednesday for permission to open, with proposed hours of noon to 1 a.m. The restaurant would also have a seasonal patio with 36 seats.
Loosely translated Chinese Mirch means spicy Chinese food. It is born of the energy of two distinct cultures- Chinese & Indian- as a result of the cultural coalition that took place thousands of years back when Chinese immigrants moved to neighboring India to seek new opportunities. The cultural phenomenon launched a culinary coup where Indian herbs and spices meet a blend of Cantonese, Hakka and Szechuan style cooking.
Board hearings start at 10 a.m. in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
