Venezuelan restaurant in West Roxbury planning new outlet in Jackson Square

Via the Jamaica Plain Facebook group comes word that the long vacant Il Panino space across Centre Street from the Jackson Square T station now has a sign advising it will soon become an outlet of Viva Mi Arepa, which has long served up Venezuelan food at Grove and Washington streets in West Roxbury, but whose continued existence there is possibly threatened by plans for a new apartment building.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


reviewed it years ago for Dig Boston, part of a roundup of West Roxbury places I wrote that included Vintage Restaurant, West on Centre, and Masona Grill.

I remember being impressed that it makes its arepas to order. Quality home-style Venezuelan cooking in a restaurant setting at nice prices. Hope it thrives in its new home!
