⁉️ Did you know? 1 in 10 Massachusetts residents can't reliably predict where their next meal is coming from. That's why we're supporting the Project Bread's Walk for Hunger & 5K Run – 50th Celebration this Sunday. It is the oldest pledge walk in the country (that's right, Boston did it first!), and Project Bread is celebrating 50 years of action against hunger. Consider joining the walk or making a donation to Project Bread to help support programs across the state (including support of the Ashmont Farmers Market) that ensure everyone, regardless of income, can access nutritious food all year long!

The Spring 2018 Restaurant Opening Guide: North Shore

Another restaurant is moving from Lowell Street to Main Street, too: The NexMex Thing, a Mexican restaurant that opened in early 2017, is moving from 14 Lowell St. to a larger space at 75 Main St.

This article has 5 other Boston locations (Show)

The Pickering Wharf seafood restaurant is making a small move from 86 Wharf St. to 76 Wharf St., the former Victoria Station space, which will give it about 1,000 extra square feet. Finz has been in its current location for close to two decades.

    The Spring 2018 Restaurant Opening Guide: North Shore
    Winter 2017-2018 saw a few restaurant openings on the North Shore - two Somerville restaurants expanded to Salem, Beverly got a poke restaurant, a North Shore doughnut pop-up landed a Newburyport storefront, and more. But spring is looking a little busier, from the debut of a "food truck emporium" in Lynn to the expansion of Superfine from Manchester to Marblehead.
