What's replacing Hunan Palace?

  • j

Does anyone know what is replacing my local Chinese restaurant, Hunan Palace, which was on Galen street just on the Newton side of Watertown Square? Hunan Palace closed very suddenly, and a one story plywood shell was erected around the restaurant. Much activity occurs behind the plywood and I suspect it will be another restaurant of some kind. Any information out there? Thanks.

  1. A friend of mine, whose favorite restaurant was HP, said the owner(chef?) and her husband retired..She was 62. They sold it to her cousin, who is reopening it as basically the same thing, but they're giving the whole place a face-lift...he says he thinks they've finished the inside, but the outside is running behind schedule.
