The growing Chinese barbecue vendor WOW Barbecue is closer to flooring the town of Brookline: A town employee confirmed this morning that the company, known as the Barbecue Lamb Brothers, has applied for all forms of licensing to operate at 320 Washington St. A Chowhound poster provided the tip yesterday.

According to the employee, the Barbecue Lamb Brothers are looking to open a 76-seat WOW Barbecue restaurant in the space, which most recently housed Zen320 Sushi. The proposed hours of operation are daily from 11:30 a.m. - 2 a.m., with booze starting to flow at noon.

WOW Barbecue has a small fleet of food trucks, and its first brick-and-mortar location opened last year in Malden. From the road, it offers a variety of barbecue skewers, including lamb, chicken, quail egg, and cabbage. The existing restaurant has a full menu of a la carte items and entrees, including its signature spicy pot, a chili oil and Chinese-spiced "healthy and colorful mix" of seafood and seasonal vegetables.

The licensing hearing is scheduled for May 19, the town employee said.
