The billion-dollar reconstruction of the Mass Pike Allston interchange is coming! MassDOT's plan is highly auto-oriented, with a new highway and major roads built first and bus and rail projects deferred to the future. We all know our neighborhood is already drowning in traffic. It will only get worse unless big transit improvements come soon. On Dec. 5th, join your neighbors for an introductory overview of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Mass Pike Allston Interchange. Come learn of what MassDOT has planned for the neighborhood and how these plans will impact your transit options and quality of life. There are limited opportunities remaining for residents to voice their concerns on this neighborhood altering project, don't miss out!!

Some residents have pushed for ground-level reconstruction, arguing that it would lower this barrier, reduce noise from vehicles revving uphill, and allow for more development in the future by creating decks over the roadways — while being the least costly of the three. “It just unlocks all these things,” said Harry Mattison, an Allston resident and member of a neighborhood task force working on the highway design. “Even if they’re not done as part of this project, they could still be done over time. But once you build a new highway viaduct, it’s there forever and you can never improve it.”

    A mammoth highway project that would dramatically reshape the Massachusetts Turnpike in Allston and affect the commute of hundreds of thousands of motorists will move forward and likely break ground in 2020, state officials said Monday.

October 2017 in Review, From Lobster Rolls to Cider Doughnuts

Emack & Bolio’s (1663 Beacon St., Brookline): This was the last remaining Brookline location of the ice cream chain, which got its start in Brookline in the 1970s.

This article has 26 other Boston locations (Show)

Beantown Juice and Tea (32 Kneeland St.): Juices, smoothies, and bubble tea from the people behind the nearby Irashai Sushi.

Beta Burger (1437 Tremont St., Mission Hill, Boston): A permitting issue kept this Mission Hill burger spot out of commission for a few months, but it’s back.

Better Bagels (83 Seaport Blvd., Seaport District, Boston): A popular bagel pop-up gets its first brick-and-mortar location, featuring bagels and bagel sandwiches, as well as coffee and tea.

Bon Me (60 Binney St., East Cambridge): This new location is considered the flagship for the restaurant-and-food-truck group, which serves Vietnamese-inspired sandwiches, noodle bowls, and more.

Casalinga (151 Hanover St., Haymarket, Boston): Pasta with 30 choices of sauce, plus pizza, sandwiches, and more.

Chick-Fil-A (140 Providence Hwy., Dedham): This is the 11th Massachusetts location for the chicken chain.

Eventide Fenway (1321 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Portland’s acclaimed Eventide Oyster Co. now has a fast-casual sibling in Boston, and yes, the brown butter lobster roll is on the menu.

Golden Goose Cafe (65 Atlantic Ave., North End, Boston): Breakfast fare from the owner of Golden Goose Market.

Kings (60 Seaport Blvd., Seaport District, Boston): Bowling, arcade games, pool tables, plenty of televisions, and giant cocktails.

Local 338 Bagels & Coffee (1727 Centre St., West Roxbury, Boston): The bagels are made 90% in New York and then shipped to Boston frozen to be finished.

Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar (253 Summer St., Fort Point, Boston): With a location open for years in Back Bay, this sibling to Ruka and Yvonne’s is now in Fort Point as well, serving up Mexican cuisine and a hefty tequila list.

Momi Nonmi (1128 Cambridge St., Inman Square, Cambridge): A modern Japanese izakaya (with plenty of sake) with a touch of Hawaii.

Poke Bento and Beard Papa’s (827 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Poke bowls and cream puffs in the former Samurai space.

Cinderella’s (901 Main St., Central Square, Cambridge): The recently renovated Italian spot closed to make way for the construction of a boutique hotel.

Grub (738 Huntington Ave., Mission Hill, Boston): This poutine-oriented spot may now be closed, but sister spot Penguin Pizza will carry some of Grub’s most popular menu items.

Nunzio’s Pizzeria (195 State St., Downtown Boston): A casual pizzeria near the waterfront.

Patty Chen’s Dumpling Room (907 Main St., Central Square, Cambridge): The same construction that shuttered Cinderella’s is closing Patty Chen’s for six to eight months, but when it returns, it’ll have a bigger space and a bar.

Dudley Dough (2302 Washington St., Roxbury, Boston): The Haley House’s fair-wage pizzeria will close at the end of the year due to financial struggles.

Globe Bar & Cafe (565 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): It’s not closing for good; it’s just relocating down the street to the former Rattlesnake space. Relocation dates haven’t been announced yet.

    October 2017 in Review, From Lobster Rolls to Cider Doughnuts
