Last month the former Jimbo’s Famous Roast Beef & Seafood in Union Square, Somerville, reopened as Barbeque International, casting a wide net and proclaiming itself “A mecca of barbeque pleasure. A sizzling assortment of the world’s most popular barbeque food.”
At Barbeque International this translates to a vast assortment of dishes, from Buffalo wings and baby back ribs, to shawarma and house-made Indian flatbreads. It seems as though the restaurant wants to stretch and showcase authentic Indian specialties without losing customers who counted on Jimbo’s for subs and mozzarella sticks. We weren’t big fans of the subs here (since the shop changed owners years ago) but with the new place, we were most curious about the Indian food. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
