Ex-food truck puts down stakes in JP

Fill Belly’s—formerly a food truck—reopened as a brick-and-mortar restaurant June 6 at 3381 Washington St.

Restaurant proprietor Boswell “Chef Bos” Scott said the small, six-table restaurant is allowing him to expand on what he described as his “funky…urban cultural cuisine”—experimental variations and mixes from different culinary traditions.

He serves a variety of “Bosolitos”—Latin American empanada shells combined with fillings from around the world. Bosolito options include: Southwestern-style pulled pork; Caribbean chicken curry; coconut teriyaki beef; and a vegetarian bean-and-corn mix.

He also serves a dish called “mac & soul,” where sweet potatoes and collard greens are cooked in with macaroni and cheese. “It’s soul food in one dish,” Scott said.

“I just kind of take all my favorite things and do it my way,” he said.

Fill Belly’s is currently open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., though Scott said he may refine those hours as he gets a better feel for customer traffic through the restaurant.
