    Boston Restaurant Talk
    A couple of years ago. we reported that a steakhouse was planning to open within a new hotel in Cambridge. It now appears that the dining spot coming to the now-open hotel will not be a steakhouse after all, but a restaurant with French influences.

Environmental damage from Hurricane Harvey is just beginning to emerge

In all, reporters cataloged more than 100 Harvey-related toxic releases — on land, in water and air. Most were never publicized, and in the case of two of the biggest releases, Arkema and Magellan, the extent or potential toxicity was initially understated.

    Environmental damage from Hurricane Harvey is just beginning to emerge
    As first responders and residents struggled to save lives and property during the record-shattering deluge of Hurricane Harvey, the toxic onslaught from the nation's petrochemical hub was largely overshadowed. But nearly seven months after floodwaters swamped Houston, the extent of the environmental assault is beginning to surface, while questions about the long-term consequences for human health remain unanswered.

    HOUSTON (AP) - A toxic onslaught from the nation's petrochemical hub was largely overshadowed by the record-shattering deluge of Hurricane Harvey as residents and first responders struggled to save lives and property. More than a half-year after floodwaters swamped America's fourth-largest city, the extent of this environmental assault is beginning to surface, while questions about the long-term consequences for human health remain unanswered.
