What has been the Olive Tree Cafe on Mass Ave between Central and MIT will now become a new establishment called Beantown Taqueria. Boston Restaurant Talk reports the name change, which it would be safe to assume also reflects a total change in concept, based on notes from a City of Cambridge license hearing. The under-construction website for Beantown Taqueria offers little insight besides the phrase "Mexican Soul Food." The Olive Tree Cafe was formerly the Jerusalem Cafe and served Greek and Middle Eastern fare as well as all-day breakfast. Guess bleary-eyed MIT students will now be spilling salsa rather than tzatziki on their pajamas.
