⁉️ 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!

April 2018 in Review, From Robotic Kitchens to Fried Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites

Talulla (377 Walden St., Cambridge): Located in the former T.W. Food space and owned by T.W. Food alums, this small restaurant features fine dining with influences from around the world.

This article has 11 other Boston locations (Show)

Abbott’s Frozen Custard (1853 Massachusetts Ave., Lexington): This Rochester, New York-based frozen custard chain also has Massachusetts locations in Needham and Brighton.

The Bacon Truck Cafe (50 Terminal St., Charlestown, Boston): Boston’s bacon-themed food truck has put down roots with a casual breakfast-and-lunch brick-and-mortar location, serving bacon everything, including dessert.

The Ghost Walks (57 Stuart St., Theater District, Boston): A cocktail-oriented sibling to Committee, Cafeteria, and Bijou, located under Bijou, with showy drinks and a champagne vending machine.

Kung Fu Tea (1 Brighton Ave., Allston, Boston): Located inside of Super 88, this is the seventh Massachusetts location for the international bubble tea chain.

Rebel’s Guild (200 Stuart St., Theater District, Boston): Located inside the Revere Hotel in the former Emerald Lounge space, this revolution-themed restaurant has a giant cannon right in the middle and serves a seafood-heavy New England-y menu.

Whole Heart Provisions (298 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square, Cambridge): This is the second location for the Allston-based vegetarian spot; it’ll expand to Harvard next with its grain bowls, falafel dogs, and more.

Clover Food Lab (6 Harvard St., Brookline): The ever-expanding Clover has closed its five-year-old Brookline location, which was a takeout-only spot.

The Maiden (28 West Broadway, South Boston): Oysters, cheese, charcuterie, and more from Esti, Drew, and Jon Parsons, located right by the Broadway T stop. This was a sibling to the now-defunct Sam’s at Louis.

Salvatore’s (225 Northern Ave., Seaport District, Boston): This Italian restaurant still has sibling spots open in Boston’s Theater District and in a few suburbs, but the rent was reportedly much too high here.

Sonny Walker’s (380 Warren St., Roxbury, Boston): This decades-old Roxbury bar was a live music institution.

Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel (645-647 Tremont St., South End, Boston): Tremont 647 had been serving the neighborhood for 21 years, including taco Tuesdays and pajama brunches, joined a few years later by its sister next door. Both will be replaced by Whaling in Oklahoma from Tim Maslow.

    April 2018 in Review, From Robotic Kitchens to Fried Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites
    April 2018 saw the openings of lots of new restaurants in and around Boston, from a bacon-filled cafe in Charlestown to a Theater District club with, well, theatrical cocktails, not to mention a suburban stunner out in Easton, a couple ramen shops in Medford and Somerville, and new vegetarian spots in Cambridge and Brookline.

    Over the river from Boston, Cambridge and Somerville had a bit of a slow winter in terms of restaurant openings; there were a few highlights, from ceviche in Union Square to delivery-only fried chicken sandwiches coming out of Inman Square, but there weren't very many openings overall. Spring might be another story, however.
