    Porter Square, be prepared to meet Colette, hotel restaurant with strong French accent
    At the end of a tortured road lies the promise of an elegant French-influenced restaurant for the Porter Square Hotel, called Colette and given a summertime opening date by its principals.

March 2018 in Review, From Lobster Rolls to Soup Dumplings

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.

    March 2018 in Review, From Lobster Rolls to Soup Dumplings
    Lots of new restaurants popped onto the scene in March 2018, serving up Peruvian food in Somerville, Korean food in Brookline, Southern food in the South End, poke in Cambridge, and more.

Cambridge Now Has Even More Options for Ramen and Sushi
