Last December, we reported that the owner of Jonny Bostons, the burger/cheesesteak/etc. shop on the north end of The Junction, had decided to sell. Half a year later, the shop has a new owner. We talked this afternoon with Miguel Govela, who has taken over from original owner Dan Atherton. For now, Govela told WSB, the name and the menu will stay the same. In the weeks/months ahead, they will be working to make additions to the menu, such as salads and tacos, and eventually, the name will change (though, like this weekend’s other north-Junction restaurant story, it’s not finalized yet – he’s looking at Pica, as in “hot,” the name on the sign-permit application that tipped us to the ownership change). Jonny Bostons, by the way, will be closed on the 4th.
