A new restaurant stands poised to open in South Boston this April. Roza Lyons will open at 709 East Broadway in a newly remodeled space that previously housed Urban Art Bar, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.
The restaurant is the work of Robert Fitzharris, Ian Neubecker, and Marcos Figueiredo — all of whom have worked at The Playwright nearby, according to the Improper Bostonian — and it aims to cater to a mature crowd that's more inclined to eat a healthy salad or wrap than something fried.
The menu at Roza Lyons will feature a "healthy selection of salads, sandwiches, and shared plates," according to its Facebook page, including panini and wraps, as the Improper wrote. Additionally, the restaurant will have craft beer (20 on tap), wine, and cocktails.
Roza Lyons acquired its malt, wines, and liqueurs license directly from Urban Art Bar, according to a City of Boston licensing board page. Updates to the interior of the restaurant have been chronicled on Facebook, showing warm wooden floors, exposed brick walls, and ample use of the restaurant's lion/rose logo. The restaurant is reportedly named in honor of Neubecker's mother and Fitzharris' mother, whose respective maiden names were Roza and Lyons.
