June 2018 in Review, From Burgers to Barbecue

Potbelly Sandwich Shop (1 Porter Rd.): The Chicago-based sandwich chain has other local locations, including one in Downtown Boston.

Wok N’ Roll (1908 Massachusetts Ave., Porter Square, Cambridge): The Chinese restaurant had been around for over two decades.

This article has 19 other Boston locations (Show)

Cafe Juiceup (1290 Blue Hill Ave., Mattapan, Boston): Juices, smoothies, and more.

Cava (669 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): This is the fourth local outpost for the DC-based fast-casual Mediterranean chain. Next, it’ll open in Cambridge’s Kendall Square.

Gypsy Place Coffee and Juice Bar (90 Hampshire St., Cambridge): A 20-seat cafe with juice, smoothies, breakfast sandwiches, and more.

Pavement Coffeehouse (415 Western Ave., Brighton, Boston): The seventh location for the local cafe chain is also home to a coffee roasting facility and commissary kitchen.

Rabottini’s Pizza (182 Western Ave., Lower Allston, Boston): What started as a one-day-a-week pop-up inside of a Cambridge bagel shop is now a free-standing, five-day-a-week pop-up (expected to last through the fall), serving pizza, salads, and a few flavors of Gracie’s Ice Cream.

Revival Cafe & Kitchen (125 Cambridgepark Dr., Alewife, Cambridge): This is the first of three new projects — two Revivals and one beer hall called Mothership — from Steve “Nookie” Postal (Commonwealth, Crema Cafe) and Liza Shirazi (Crema Cafe). Coffee, sandwiches, and more.

Sassafras (688 Broadway, Ball Square, Somerville): Eat at Jumbo’s has been reborn into a fully vegetarian (and mostly vegan) operation.

Soleil (2306 Washington St., Roxbury, Boston): Southern-influenced dining, with counter-service breakfast and lunch (lots of sandwiches) and full-service dinner.

Soup Shack (779 Centre St., Jamaica Plain, Boston): A pan-Asian soup shop, featuring everything from pho to ramen.

Sushi Today (1562 Tremont St., Mission Hill, Boston): Sushi and sashimi, with plenty of combos available.

Centre Street Cafe (669 Centre St., Jamaica Plain, Boston): The Centre Street team is revamping the Italian restaurant into a space-themed diner called Little Dipper, which could reopen in July.

Refuge Cafe (155 Brighton Ave., Allston, Boston): There was a false alarm a couple years ago, but now Refuge Cafe is really gone, leaving behind only a series of bizarre Facebook posts, as was its style.

Roost Bistro (259 Newbury St., Back Bay): This New American bistro closed after four years, but its sibling bakery next door, Patisserie on Newbury, remains open.

Ryles Jazz Club (212 Hampshire St., Inman Square, Cambridge): After over 40 years, the Inman Square music venue and restaurant has shut down. The owners are focusing on their almost century-old deli across the street, S&S.

Stephi’s in Southie (130 Dorchester Ave., South Boston): In the wake of the joining of the hospitality groups behind the Stephanie’s restaurants, Met Back Bay, and others, one member of the Stephanie’s family, the five-year-old Stephi’s in Southie, has shut its doors.

The Wholy Grain (275 Shawmut Ave., South End, Boston): The neighborhood bakery and cafe, which had been open for eight years, will be replaced by a new Chilacates location.

Cappy’s Tavern (11 Wolcott Ct., Hyde Park, Boston): After eight decades, this classic dive bar will shut down in late July.

Intermission Tavern (228 Tremont St., Downtown Boston): This Theater District pub will shut down at some point in the near future, to be replaced by the Fourth Wall.

Redd’s in Rozzie (4257 Washington St., Roslindale, Boston): This Roslindale hotspot will close in July, with owner Charlie Redd citing changes in Boston’s liquor licensing system that would devalue his license.

    June 2018 in Review, From Burgers to Barbecue
    As we said goodbye to spring and hello to summer during June 2018, plenty of restaurants opened around the Boston area, including several food vendors at Somerville's growing Bow Market, a Thai restaurant in Somerville, a bagel shop in Cambridge, a rooftop bar in Salem, and more.

    Not enough Boston schools are named for women. Here are some naming suggestions - The Boston Globe
    How is this possible? Of 125 Boston public schools, only 10 are named for women. You read that right. Ten. And guess how many are named after men. Oh, how about 75. Pathetic! It's 2018, in one of the most progressive cities in the country. Can't Boston do better than this?
