A new restaurant will take its place, according to the above-mentioned posts.
It's called DooWee & Rice, and this is what the new restaurant's website says about it, in the words of the new owner:
My name is DooWee (duy) and I am a young chef with big dreams! … and as of July 2012 my dreams and ideas are all coming together in the form of a small fusion test kitchen I will be opening late August under the name DooWee & Rice in Somerville, Ma.
The website says the idea for the restaurant stemmed from DooWee & Rice Thirsty Thursday nights at Wonder Bar (in Allston).
The DooWee & Rice website includes some tasty-looking photos of what might be served there, and you can also check out the DooWee & Rice Facebook page.
