Opening dates aren't set in stone, but it's time to get excited about the huge batch of new restaurants that are on track to arrive this fall*. From a mezze bar in Somerville to Neapolitan pizza in Fort Point, the options are many and the anticipation is growing. What opening are you most eagerly awaiting? Will it be The Beehive's Harvard Square offshoot, Beat Hotel, or the next Shake Shack, also rumored to be coming to Harvard Square? The literally cool Frost Ice Bar at Faneuil Hall or Tony Maws' new project, The Kirkland Tap & Trotter?
Cast your vote, defend your choice in the comments, and prepare for a delicious season. Also note that this is by no means a scientific poll, so those whining about its technical limitations will be cursed with growing extra taste buds on inconvenient body parts. (Ok, maybe those already exist.)
*A few of these may actually open before summer ends. Stay tuned!
