December 2017 in Review, From Sushi Burritos to Sake Sangria

Allium Market & Cafe (1330 Beacon St., Coolidge Corner, Brookline): A specialty food market, cheese shop, and cafe inspired by Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Michigan.

16 Handles (1309 Beacon St., Coolidge Corner, Brookline): Another nail in the coffin of the froyo era.

This article has 22 other Boston locations (Show)

Fat Baby (118 Dorchester St., South Boston): This Loco Taqueria sibling serves up sushi, cocktails, and more in a loud, energetic space in Southie.

Highland Fried (1217 Cambridge St., Inman Square, Cambridge): Earlier this year, the Highland Kitchen team took over East Coast Grill; now, they’ve revamped it into Highland Fried, zeroing in on fried chicken, barbecue, and Tiki drinks.

Kaju Tofu House (636 Beacon St., Kenmore Square, Boston): With one location in Allston and one recently defunct one in Harvard Square, Kaju Tofu House is back up to two locations with this new one in Kenmore, serving a range of Korean food.

Kor Tor Mor (24 College Ave., Davis Square, Somerville): Thai food with a focus on Bangkok street foods in the former Golden Light space.

La Colombe (29 Northern Ave., Seaport District, Boston): Boston’s second location of the Philadelphia-based coffee roaster and cafe chain. It’s also coming to Back Bay.

Moody’s Delicatessen (500 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Waltham’s acclaimed delicatessen and charcuterie destination now has a Boston proper sibling serving up deli sandwiches and more. Note: Only open on weekdays.

Our Fathers (197 N. Harvard St., Lower Allston): A twofer from the Tasty Burger/Citizen Public House/Franklin Cafe team — a Jewish delicatessen on one side (takeout) and a full-service modern Israeli restaurant and bar on the other side. The bar’s got a strong gin focus.

Snappy Kitchen (234 Elm St., Davis Square, Somerville): Snappy Ramen hopped across Davis into a larger space and expanded its menu to include sushi, gyoza, and more — changing its name in the process. There’s still ramen, though.

Sunny Cafe (1000 Bennington St., East Boston): Sushi burritos, poke, bubble tea, and more.

Sushi Kappo (86 Peterborough St., Fenway, Boston): A casual spot from the team behind Ebi Sushi in Union Square. The new place serves sushi burritos, poke bowls, ramen, and more.

Sweetgreen (225 Franklin St., Downtown Boston): DC’s salad chain keeps expanding its leafy Boston-area reach. The newest location is in Post Office Square and is optimized for mobile and online order pick-up.

Trillium Garden at the Substation (4228 Washington St., Roslindale, Boston): Ever-popular Fort Point brewery Trillium has opened another seasonal “beer garden,” albeit indoors, in the old Roslindale substation. It’s expected to stay open into the spring.

British Beer Company (85 Providence Hwy., East Walpole): There are around a dozen other locations of this local chain around the area, but the longtime Walpole one is now gone. British Beer Company features an extensive beer list.

Dudley Dough (2302 Washington St., Roxbury, Boston): The Haley House’s fair-wage pizzeria closed due to financial struggles.

East Coast Grill (1271 Cambridge St., Inman Square, Cambridge): It’s really gone this time, sort of. The Highland Kitchen owners...

Emerald Lounge (200 Stuart St., Theatre District, Boston): The Revere Hotel’s nightclub closed in December, and the hotel plans to replace it with a new restaurant in spring 2018.

Fairsted Kitchen (1704 Beacon St., Washington Square, Brookline): Saying farewell on New Year’s Eve, Fairsted Kitchen will be reborn in the new year (under the same ownership) as Grassona’s Italian, serving Italian comfort food.

Globe Bar & Cafe (565 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): It’s not gone for good; it’s just relocating down the street to the former Rattlesnake space. It plans to reopen around January 2018.

Kamado Super Fusion (779 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, Boston): This sushi spot was open for a few years. It’ll be replaced by an Asian noodle soup spot called Asian Noodle Soup.

La Motta’s (1357 Washington St., South End, Boston): This Italian restaurant opened in late 2015 under the same ownership of the longtime previous occupant of the space, Union Bar & Grill. Now, it’ll be taken over by the Alpine Restaurant Group, reportedly opening a new Burro Bar there.

Pikaichi (1 Brighton Ave., Allston, Boston): This Allston ramen destination closed due to a rent hike but will try to relocate soon.

Sunset Grill & Tap and Patron’s (130 Brighton Ave., Allston): End of an era for this longtime comfort food spot with a massive beer list (and its upstairs pool hall, Patron’s). Sibling spot Sunset Cantina remains open on Comm. Ave.

    December 2017 in Review, From Sushi Burritos to Sake Sangria
    2017 did not end with a whimper. December was jam-packed with openings, including a number of highly anticipated spots, such as Jewish delicatessen Our Fathers in Allston; a sushi-focused sibling to Loco Taqueria, Fat Baby; and a Back Bay sequel to the acclaimed Moody's Delicatessen out in Waltham.
