‘Espresso Yourself’ May Fill Former Uforge Gallery Space

Here's some buzz: It appears more coffee might be coming to Centre Street, replacing a space previously occupied by a popular art gallery.

"Espresso Yourself" will have a petition in front of the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council's Public Service Committee at its Tuesday, Dec. 6, meeting, requesting a seven-day common victualler license from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., with takeout services. April Qin and Feruz Tairov are the petitioners, with Tairov listed as the manager.

Until recently, the space in question at 767 Centre St. was home to the Uforge Gallery. After five-plus years, Uforge closed the gallery space in October.

If Espresso Yourself (which, based on the punny name, would presumably serve coffee) does arrive, it would operate in close proximity to Caffe Nero, which opened nearly two years ago, Dunkin' Donuts and other nearby coffee spots.

The public service committee meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Curtis Hall. Also on the agenda is a review of committee initiatives for the next two years.
