The former Sebastians location at 251 Massachusetts Avenue will become Chinese Mirch, according to the agenda for an upcoming licensing hearing. It's part of a small chain that offers "Chinese food, Indian flavors." The restaurant is seeking to include a 36-seat seasonal patio outside. The closest location of Chinese Mirch is in Framingham, and the others are in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, with a few other states coming soon. The website confirms that a Boston location is indeed in the works.
Loosely translated, the name means "spicy Chinese food," according to the website, and most of the menu items include a heat indicator, with plenty of "medium hot" and "very hot" options.
