Allston barbecue favorite SoulFire is planning to open a second location at what was formerly the Brigham Circle Diner, says a post on Chowhound. Boston Restaurant Talk confirms that the new location is happening and says the menu will be fairly similar to the original, which is know for its lengthily hickory-smoked wings, ribs, pulled pork and chicken as well as regional sauces and classic accompaniments, like corn bread and collard greens. The news is unsurprising given SoulFire's popularity and the fact that Boston is in the midst of a barbecue boom; other upcoming openings include Back Deck and The Bearded Pig plus rumors of a possible Redbones expansion.
