Greater Boston’s Ballooning Ramen Scene Expands Through Cambridge

The newest addition has decided on Cambridge’s Porter Square for its future home, bringing even more ramen (and sushi, too) to the neighborhood. One Ramen & Sushi will open at 1759 Massachusetts Ave., next door to The Abbey, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.

    Greater Boston's Ballooning Ramen Scene Expands Through Cambridge
    Maybe it's the urge to seek relief from the chill of winter, maybe it's the delicious appeal of silky broth and stretchy noodles - either way, the local ramen scene keeps expanding, with new restaurants cropping up all over the city with some frequency.

    Somerville's Davis Square Is Becoming a Hotbed of Thai Street Food
    The greater Boston area is full of Thai restaurants, but most serve the standard assortment of Thai-American dishes, from pad thai to mix-and-match curry dishes and not much else. But some new restaurants are beginning to diverge from that formula, serving up Thai dishes that diners don't see as often around here, and Somerville's Davis Square may be at the hub of this welcome development.

    New Series by Bill Porter Coming To Chandler Gallery - Agassiz Baldwin Community
    One could argue that the way a story is told can be just as important as the story itself. Exploring those nuances is exactly what local artist Bill Porter intends for his new show "Impart." In this collection, Porter will construct a stunning narrative between contrasting visuals that expresses themes of heritage, identity and the mysteries of life as seen through a child's eyes.

    Some of the best places to get unexpected meals and snacks in and around Boston are not quite permanent. Pop-ups are happening with increasing frequency, and the Greater Boston area has seen the growth of several crowd favorites over the years, some of which have even gone on to find permanent locations (think Oisa Ramen, which just opened its Downtown Boston restaurant, and Bagelsaurus, the ever-crowded Cambridge bagel shop.)

    Changes to Porter Square traffic flow include eliminating island, mall exit
    Traffic safety improvements in Porter Square would remove the pedestrian island where Somerville Avenue feeds into Massachusetts Avenue; close an exit from the mall allowing for a left-hand turn onto Massachusetts Avenue; and make the left turn from Massachusetts Avenue onto Somerville Avenue a single, dedicated left lane, replacing a center southbound lane that can be either left or straight.

    'Frost Terrace' affordable housing OK'd, will bring 40 units to Porter Square area
    At a contentious 3.5-hour hearing Thursday, the Board of Zoning Appeal unanimously approved a comprehensive permit for Frost Terrace, an all-affordable 40-unit residential development at 1791 Massachusetts Ave., near Porter Square. If the project gets its hoped-for state funding, construction would start in 2019 and finish in mid-2020.
