As someone who has worked in the Hyde Square neighborhood for over 20 years, I was dismayed to learn that the Bella Luna restaurant is having to locate to a cheaper location in the near future. While they may receive an extension on their current lease, their eventual relocation will be a loss for the Hyde Square community.
Bella Luna and Milky Way have been a vital and active force in the revitalization of this area of Jamaica Plain. They have strived to provide a welcoming place to live and work and have always been supportive of their neighbors, especially the Connolly Branch Library.
We hope that they will be able to remain in their present location as long as possible.
