(This story first appeared on Boston Restaurant Talk.)

Last fall, it was reported that the popular Jamaica Plain restaurant was closing after nearly 30 years of operation and being replaced by a new eatery, and now we’ve learned that the new location has opened its doors.

According to a poster on the Friends of Boston’s Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Abuela’s Table is now open in the former El Oriental de Cuba space on Center Street and, as previously mentioned, the co-owner/chef of Tu y Yo in Somerville is behind the spot. The new restaurant, which debuted late last week, offers flautas, empanadas, Mexican street corn, tamales, tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas and more.

El Oriental de Cuba was known for items such as the Cuban sandwich, paella, grilled skirt steak, fried pork chops, chicken fricassee, and braised oxtail.

The address for El Oriental de Cuba (and Abuela’s future table) is 416 Center Street, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130.
