Cat Daffodil Sniffer asks:

Recs for Greek catering/party trays? Not a huge job. Happy to go through a home cook if someone is hanging a shingle.

UBurger, which already sells fresh burgers and hand-cut fries to BU students from two location, plans to open a third outlet on Tremont Street at Temple Place.

The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to grant UBurger a license to open between 11 a.m. and midnight seven days a week. At a brief hearing today, the board had no major questions; member Suzanne Ianella, who lives nearby, did ask how much a burger would cost (about $5, depending on toppings, a restaurant lawyer told her).

Meanwhile, out in West Roxbury, the Skara Grill on Centre Street wants to add cordials and liqueurs to its drink menu. The board will also vote on this request tomorrow. The West Roxbury Neighborhood Council and City Councilor John Tobin both say they're in favor.

David Ertischek reports Skara Grill on Centre Street in West Roxbury is growing its own tomatoes - on stakes in their own parking lot (can you imagine the old Friendly's doing that?).

Skara Grill on Centre Street (you know, where the Friendly's used to be) had its "soft opening" this past weekend - dinners only, between 5 and 10 p.m. as the owners and workers get set for the grand opening on May 31 (when they'll be opening for lunch as well).

We were heading down Centre yesterday around dinner time, saw the "Now Open" sign and couldn't resist.

David Ertischek reports a Greek restaurant is going into the old Friendly's on Centre Street in West Roxbury, which, when you think about it, is kind of odd, given that the Greekiest neighborhood in Boston, Roslindale, doesn't have a single Greek restaurant.

Then again, it will help cement Centre Street's dominance of the ethnic-eatery market along the parkways. It wasn't all that long ago that your choices along Centre were basically Irish-American, pizza and Samia's (and, of course, Friendly's). Now all they need is a Jewish deli, a taqueria and an Ethiopian place, and I'm all set.

Roslindale is probably the Greekest Boston neighborhood, so David Harris wonders: Why doesn't it have any Greek restaurants?

Unless, of course, you count the Roslindale House of Pizza (or My Big Fat Greek Pizza just over the line in Forest Hills).
