The Fenway neighborhood welcomed a new restaurant to its ranks at the end of February. Sufra (52 Queensberry St.) took over the former Black Jack Pasta Bar space and is serving a selection of Mediterranean dishes, including falafel and shawarma.
Sufra has operated for years as a food truck, frequently parking in the Fenway neighborhood. (The truck is currently off the road for the season, reopening April 1.) The restaurant — which is not to be confused with the Cambridge bakery Sofra — made its debut on February 22, opening near Thaitation and M&J Teriyaki.
The restaurant offers a special dish of the day, which ranges from green beans and lamb on Monday to kabsa and chicken with rice on Saturday. (The restaurant is closed Sundays.) There are also shawarma, falafel, and chicken wraps and plates, with side options of hummus, rice, baba ghanoush, fattoush salad, and more.
Sufra joins a neighborhood that’s seen tremendous growth in its dining options over the last several years — a trajectory that’s poised to continue through 2019. The restaurant sits close to Peterborough Street’s “Restaurant Row” — which is home to Gyro City, El Pelón, Sushi Kappo, and more — and not too far from Boylston Street, which will see the addition of a fourth restaurant from Tiffani Faison this summer. Fenway will also get a food hall this year, when Time Out Market opens at the former Landmark Center site.
