Workers were busy inside the former Jerusalem Trading on Poplar Street in Roslindale Square yesterday, doing the work required to turn the old home-furnishings stuff store into a restaurant that will serve Cajun seafood in a bag - after resolving whatever ISD issues had stopped work there for several months.
On July 11, meanwhile, the owners of the proposed 90-seat Shaking Seafood go before the Boston Licensing Board for permission to buy the beer-and-wine license of a defunct restaurant in the North End's North Square.
Shaking Seafood, first announced last September, had sought to get the neighborhood liquor license given up by Chris Douglass for his never opened restaurant in the Roslindale Square substation, but the licensing board gave the license to a Thai place on Mission Hill instead.
In the shaken-seafood concept, diners pick a type of seafood and spices to flavor it, then the server puts everything in a bag and shakes it, after which the diner is given the bag.
The news comes as Redd's in Rozzie, around the corner on Washington Street, gets ready to shut down later this month.
