While in Boston, we were told the sad tale of a place called the Milky Way in Jamaica Plain. Apparently the Milky Way had taken moved into JP in worse times and brought good food, a fun bar and even a bowling alley. The Milky Way paved the way for JP to become a desirable place to live again. Then, an evil landlord decided to raise the rent, essentially pushing the Milky Way out. It didn’t take long for the Milky Way to find a new location, but instant karma hit the landlord, who has since been unable to fill the void left by the Milky Way.
So off we went to try the new place out. The new Milky Way is divided into a restaurant known as Bella Luna and a lounge area called Milky Way. We stuck to Bella Luna, which had a pretty cool and classy astronomical design, for some dinner.
The menu was mostly Italian, with some other random food types thrown in. I decided to get The Goodridge, a pizza with meatballs, parmesan and roasted garlic. It was a great choice. The pizza was nice and greasy, without being dominated by any one ingredient. The only possible complaint I could have had was that I would have liked more meatballs, but that was minor for a pizza that already tasted so good.
It looks like Bela Luna and the Milky Way have rebounded nicely into their new location and it makes the food taste even better knowing the old location sits abandoned with no rent money going to the evil landlord.
