The space at the intersection of 15th and Beacon, where Luisa Taqueria opened for business but then closed for good only a few months ago, will soon reopen — this time, as a sandwich shop/deli: “Beacon Ave Sandwiches.”
Luis and Leona, owners of The Station coffee shop, will be opening the new shop later this year. Luis told the Beacon Hill Blog that the store will be “like something that would have been on Beacon Hill in the 1920s,” a place where customers can purchase sandwiches but also meats and cheeses by the pound.
Luis told the BHB he has a lot of ideas in mind for Beacon Ave Sandwiches, including sandwich names based on local landmarks and references. In a post on the Beacon Hill Blog Facebook page, he asks for “serious” suggestions from the community.
In just a bit over a year, North Beacon Hill has acquired an Italian restaurant, an Indian restaurant, two pubs (you can now get a burger without leaving the Hill!), and a taco trailer. Soon, these will be joined by the new sandwich shop. Things are changing rapidly in the neighborhood, aren’t they? After all these changes, what do you think we still need here on the Hill?
