1) CHINATOWN — As expected, Jook Sing Cafe opened last week, the reincarnation of Harrison Cafe, which closed almost a year ago for renovations. Owned by the Soo Hoo family, the restaurant offers food that is "casual" and "reminiscent of mom's home cooking," while drawing influences from Asian as well as Italian and American cuisines. The restaurant serves breakfast, too, opening at 8 a.m. daily. Status: Certified open. 177 Harrison Ave., Boston. (617) 426-2828.

2) DORCHESTER — Chill on Park is now open in Fields Corner, offering ice cream, coffee, and more, right across the street from a park. There's seating for 19, as well as free wifi. The first Yelp review praises the "fantastic" ice cream, which has a "perfect texture" — "rich, smooth and creamy." Status: Certified open. 142 Park St., Dorchester. (617) 297-5401.

3) BURLINGTON — Osteria Nino has opened in Burlington, courtesy of the Lyons Group (Towne Stove & Spirits, Kings, etc.), serving Roman-inspired food. The roomy restaurant seats 240. One Yelper describes it as "one of THE BEST dining experiences [she has] ever had," noting that the restaurant was happy to accommodate her vegan diet with a variety of options. Status: Certified open. 19 Third Ave., Burlington. (781) 272-1600.
