A few months ago it seemed like the Island Hopper on Mass Ave in Back Bay, along with the OtherSide, would have to close to make room for a furniture chain from Minnesota. Boo! But then we heard the store wasn't coming, and that both establishments could stay. Yay! But then we just heard from Boston Restaurant Talk that the Island Hopper will indeed be closing, in fact after tomorrow, Saturday March 17. Again, boo. The Island Hopper is one of few restaurants in Boston that serve Malaysian food. The OtherSide, however, is going strong.
