NORTH END - Undergoing renovations since being badly damaged by a fire in July, Prezza is finally almost ready to reopen. The Facebook page announces a 50/50 chance of opening this very week, pending results of final inspections and permits. [FB]
NEWTON - Sycamore is now open in Newton. The self-described "seasonally driven neighborhood restaurant" is helmed by a team that includes alum from Ten Tables, Craigie on Main, and Island Creek Oyster Bar. [Patch]
NATICK - The Hotel Indigo's BOKX 109 appears to be spawning a sister restaurant, SKYBOX 109, in the Hampton Inn in Natick. While the former is a high-end steakhouse, the latter will be a sports bar with a "JukeBOKX" stage for local and national bands. It could open as early as next month.
