April 2015 Openings and Closings

The sign is up for Yuki Shabu and Sushi in Union Square Somerville, across from Bloc 11. (Former Union Sq. Donuts before they expanded a few doors down.) I'm not sure if/when it's open, but could be a nice addition to the square. Does anyone know anything about them?

Kefi's Kitchen & Coffee, Watertown

I haven't been to the brick and mortar place since it opened, but used to get lunch there weekly when he had the food truck. I loved that tuna sandwich, too. Also liked the salad with homemade pita chips.

Ethnic breakfasts?

(I should add that Mixtura opens at 11:00, so it would have to be a late breakfast.)

Ethnic breakfasts?

I haven't tried it, but Mixtura on Beacon Street in Somerville sounds good and I've been meaning to try it myself. "Serving the most delicious blend of traditional breakfast dishes as well as creative dishes that mix Peruvian, Salvadorian, and Mexican ingredients."

MDM Noodles. It's the Sound of the Mian 面條 working at the Henan Gang

Wow, that looks scrumptious. Can you tell us what each dish is? (And thanks for another chuckle of a title.)

Nice review, and I appreciate the tip. But mostly I think you deserve a prize for Best Discussion Title. Excellent! :-)

March 2015 Openings and Closings

There may have been previous mention of this, but it appears that Erawan in Waltham has closed - the windows are papered over. They were somewhat of an institution on Moody for a long time. Does anyone know of plans for the space?

Fire at MuLan, Beauty's Pizza

That's great news!

Where You Go as Opposed to Where you are Supposed to Go?

Tamarind House was Thai, not Vietnamese, so probably not the same people.

That would be great! Which is the place in Porter Square? Can't quite picture where that is.

I was in Davis Square yesterday and saw a handwritten sign in the Pinkberry space. I couldn't read the whole thing from across the street, but it said something and sushi, coming soon. Anybody know what this will be?

I saw your post in the February thread. Maybe it got buried in the snow when you were looking for it? :-)

Clay bread container in Boston area?

Totally agree - her work is beautiful.

Sunday Brunch/Lunch for 10 in Boston or Cambridge

Christopher's in Porter Square might fit the bill. They've got veggie, meat, and beer options, and are very kid friendly. Nothing fancy, just a comfortable neighborhood place with decent food (although I know some here disagree.) They might accommodate a large group in the room upstairs.

I'm not sure when it's opening, but I noticed a sign up for a Mediterranean place on Highland Ave. in Somerville, between Yummy Hut and Lemon Thai. Does anyone know anything about it?

New to (East) Arlington! Need Recs!

I would add Kathmandu Spice to the list of good choices already offered.

Any word on the one in Nonantum? I wouldn't mind terribly if it closed and something decent replaced it...

Armenian bakery Zaatar now open in Arlington

Where in Arlington is this?

Any word on Zoe's in Cambridge?

Yes, definitely back and definitely still delicious. I was there a couple of weeks ago and had pork and eggplant with garlic sauce - so good!

Chicken like Boston Chicken used to make

There was also one in Somerville, in the now-empty space that was last Brunello Bistro. And there was another in Waltham (Lexington Street? near one of those strip malls.)

Wasabi, near Porter Square, has a big "Grand Opening" banner up.

Wow, that must've just gone up, since it definitely wasn't there on Saturday when I did a walk-by to check. Great news! Tomorrow, tomorrow...

Wasabi (corner of Walden and Mass. Ave. in Cambridge) appears to be on the verge of opening. New sign, paper's off the windows, furniture in place. The latest in a string of short-lived restaurants. Maybe this one will have the magic touch?

When I drove by Zoe's yesterday, it looked like they had put a sign on the door saying "Coming soon" or something with "soon" in it. Fingers crossed!

Best new ethnic restaurants in Cambridge/Somerville?

I like it as well, although I don't know if it qualifies as new.

My imagination, or is Stop&Shop getting good again?

Porter Square Shaw's has reverted to being a Star Market. That might explain the changes, although I don't recall classical music there ever!

And this, according to today's Herald, "Tracked Down: Acclaimed pastry chef Frederic Robert, 25-year partner of French chef Alain Ducasse and a James Beard award winner, announcing that he will open Cafe Madeleine, a new patisserie in the South End within the next few weeks."

St. Honore

It's also a very good cheese. I would try Russo's, Formaggio, or Wine and Cheese Cask if it's the cheese you are after.
