Two Jamaica Plain restaurants with very different menus will soon be under the auspices of the same owner. Socrates Abreu, who runs two locations (with more to come) of the popular taco shop Chilacates, will take over operations at burger (and boozy shake) joint Grass Fed (605 Centre St.), liquor license and all, according to the Jamaica Plain Gazette.

Abreu won’t make changes to Grass Fed, which has been around since 2012, as Boston Restaurant Talk first reported when details of the ownership change appeared in a post online from the Jamaica Plain Business & Professional Association.

A second location of Grass Fed opened near the Forest Hills MBTA station in early 2016 but closed down less than a year later. The restaurant’s founder, Krista Kranyak Chalfin, also operates farm-to-table restaurant Ten Tables (597 Centre St.), which will remain open as usual.

“I am very excited to be able to focus entirely on my original and all time favorite Ten Tables in JP,” Chalfin told the Gazette. “I’m delighted that my friend and colleague Socrates has bought Grass Fed and that the concept will continue on in Jamaica Plain.”

In taking on Grass Fed, Abreu adds another project to his growing list: He’s in the process of expanding Chilacates to two new areas, Mission Hill and Chestnut Hill.
