Did you know that this week is Afterschool Professionals Appreciation? Many GIANT THANKS to our amazing team at Agassiz Baldwin Afterschool and Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center. With your skills, smarts, and warmth, you make it look easy and we know that supporting, care-taking, and inspiring children during out-of-school time most certainly isn't! Three cheers!!!

For more then 10 years our Afterschool program has worked together to put on a two day, healthy restaurant for their families. Help support our kids efforts!
One Ramen & Sushi (1759 Massachusetts Ave., Porter Square, Cambridge): This new ramen and sushi restaurant took over the former Super Fusion space.This article has 17 other Boston locations (Show)
Bab Korean Bistro (1374 Beacon St., Coolidge Corner, Brookline): Brookline doesn’t have much of a Korean restaurant scene yet, so it’s good that Bab’s menu is extensive, running the gamut from bibimbap and Korean barbecue to tteokbokki and sundubu-jjigae.
Celeste (21 Bow St., Union Square, Somerville): Dine on ceviche, lomo saltado, and other Peruvian cuisine at this cozy new Somerville spot, and don’t forget to get a pisco- or mezcal-based cocktail as well.
Humaari at Wink & Nod (3 Appleton St., South End, Boston): Wink & Nod’s latest long-term culinary pop-up incubatee is a hummus-oriented Mediterranean project from Tavern Road’s Louis DiBiccari. It’ll be running through mid-September.
Il Mondo Pizzeria (738 Huntington Ave., Mission Hill, Boston): The Mission Hill location of this local pizza joint closed at the end of 2017, but now it’s back in the neighborhood, located in the former Grub space. There’s also a location closer to Berklee.
Naukabout Brewing (13 Lake Ave., Mashpee): There’s a new taproom in town, and it features water views, a seven-barrel brewhouse, and a beer lineup that includes a New England IPA, a triple dry-hopped double IPA, and more.
Pokéworks (1440 Massachusetts Ave., Harvard Square, Cambridge): This is the second local outpost for the expanding national poke chain; it’s also in Somerville’s Davis Square.
Porto Maltese (1634 Beacon St., Washington Square, Brookline): The longtime Fireplace space is now home to a Mediterranean seafood restaurant with a variety of fish and a variety of ways in which it can be prepared. One option: Provide your own recipe.
Pot Bar (70 Brighton Ave., Allston, Boston): No, it’s not what it sounds like; it’s a hot pot restaurant that features individual portions for those who love hot pot but want the pot all to themselves.
Saigon Chicken House (223 Adams St., Dorchester, Boston): This new Vietnamese restaurant in Fields Corner serves pho, Napoleon beef, and more.
Shredded (246 W. Broadway, South Boston): Sort of a local take on Sweetgreen, serving salads as well as noodle bowls.
Southern Proper (50 Malden St., South End, Boston): Fried chicken, biscuits, hushpuppies, and more Southern goodness in a cavernous space that smells of pine.
Tasty Thai (153 Belgrade Ave., Roslindale): This new Thai restaurant took over the Seven Star Street Bistro space.
Bertucci’s (533 Commonwealth Ave., Kenmore Square, Boston; 380 Washington St., Wellesley): Two of three recent closures for the longtime local pizzeria chain.
The Gate (3171 Washington St., Jamaica Plain, Boston): After less than a year in business, this Irish pub shuttered without warning, shortly after St. Patrick’s Day. The building — the restaurant as well as several residential units — is for sale.
Jimmy John’s (512 Park Dr., Fenway, Boston): Boston’s small number of Jimmy John’s locations (an Illinois-based sandwich shop) has gotten even smaller.
Outback Steakhouse (1212 Providence Hwy., Norwood): Not a good month for chains, apparently. The “Australian” steakhouse only has a few local outposts left (Somerville, Peabody, Randolph, Hanover).
Trillium Beer Garden at the Substation (4228 Washington St., Roslindale): No surprise here as this was always just meant to be a seasonal pop-up (and a popular one), but the Roslindale Trillium location is now closed.
Bernard Lavins, 60, of Lexington, a pharmaceutical company executive, was killed Oct. 5 when his bike veered into the middle lane of traffic on Massachusetts Avenue near Porter Square, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office.

Around August 2018, the owners of the Cottage will open Door No. 7 at 165 Linden St., aiming for it to be a bit more “adult” and “sophisticated” than the Cottage. It will feature small plates, an oyster bar, and an open kitchen.
As the last bitterness of wintery weather holds on, a new ramen restaurant has arrived in Cambridge’s Porter Square. One Ramen & Sushi (1759 Massachusetts Ave.) is now open, next door to the Abbey, serving a combination of ramen and sushi, as the name suggests.
Spotted at Cambridge City Hall: a large portrait of Maria L. Baldwin, an African-American educator, civic leader, and Cantabrigian who was the first African American female principal in the Northeast,and who headmastered the Agassiz (now Baldwin) School for 40 years!
