May 2018 in Review, From Dollar Oysters to Taquerias

Blue Bottle Coffee (100 Federal St., Downtown Boston): This is the second area location for the California-based coffee chain, which...

Boston Chops (52 Temple Pl., Downtown Crossing, Boston): The second location of Boston Chops is, like its older South End sibling, located in a former bank space. The new outpost features a table designed specially for “influencers,” with adjustable lighting for that perfect Instagram post.

This article has 16 other Boston locations (Show)

Backyard Betty’s (172 West Broadway, South Boston): Cookout cuisine, boozy shakes, and vintage decor from the team behind Publico Street Bistro & Garden.

Burro Bar (1357 Washington St., South End, Boston): The Painted Burro’s little sibling in Brookline, Burro Bar, now has a South End sibling in the former La Motta’s space, serving tacos, tequila, and more.

Dos Diablos Taco Bar / Two Saints Tavern (52 Gainsborough St., Fenway, Boston): This duo of adjacent restaurants opened in the former Our House East space...

Hamilton Restaurant & Bar (1366 Beacon St., Brookline): Located in the former Yasu space, Hamilton (named after the suddenly very popular historical figure) serves “good, simple, seasonal food, rooted in classic cooking” from an alum of West Bridge, Salts, and 80 Thoreau.

Minigrow (565 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): A more pared-down version of its big sibling, Honeygrow, which has also recently expanded to Boston, Minigrow serves fast-casual stir-fries. The company is based out of Philly.

Pavement Coffeehouse (415 Western Ave., Brighton, Boston): This is the seventh location for the local cafe chain, and this one includes cafe space as well as a roasting facility and commissary kitchen.

Wild Pops (3213 Washington St., Jamaica Plain, Boston): A popsicle shop with flavors like spicy pineapple, tamarind Thai chili, and dark Belgian chocolate.

British Beer Company (29 Andover St., Danvers): This is the third location of the local pub chain to shutter in recent months, following Framingham and Walpole locations. Nearly a dozen remain open in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Bus Stop Pub (252 Western Ave., Allston, Boston): This dive bar closed after nearly 40 years, making way for new development in a rapidly changing neighborhood.

Chilli Duck (829 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Increasing Back Bay rents have claimed another longtime restaurant, this one a Thai spot near the Prudential.

Cristo’s Pizzeria (233 Elm St., Davis Square, Somerville): A longtime pizzeria and sub shop.

Doretta Taverna & Raw Bar (79 Park Plaza, Boston): Chef and restaurateur Michael Schlow opened this Greek restaurant in the space that previously housed his Italian restaurant, Via Matta. He has declined to renew the lease. One of his other restaurants, Tico, remains open nearby.

Harry O’s (1405 Washington St., South End, Boston): Like Cristo’s above, a longtime pizzeria and sub shop.

Lemon Grass Thai Cuisine (1710 Massachusetts Ave., Lexington): This Thai restaurant is now under new ownership, set to reopen as another Thai restaurant, this time called Love at First Bite, in August.

The Maiden (28 West Broadway, South Boston): After almost three years, this cheese, charcuterie, and oyster spot from the team behind the now-defunct Sam’s at Louis said goodbye to Southie.

Intermission Tavern (228 Tremont St., Theater District, Boston): This pre- and post-show drinking spot will close around late June 2018, to be replaced by a place called Fourth Wall.

    May 2018 in Review, From Dollar Oysters to Taquerias
    May 2018 included a number of interesting restaurant openings, from a South Boston spot specializing in "cookout cuisine" (with a boozy rainbow sherbet drink, too) to a casual Downtown Crossing restaurant where robots do most of the meal preparation.
