It was a busy spring in Boston proper, with openings especially concentrated in Back Bay, Jamaica Plain, and the South End. Many were fast-casual, and a lot of new coffee options sprung up. While we expected to see the arrival of a few out-of-town brands — Dig Inn, Lady M, By Chloe — those are now aiming for summer openings. But we did say hello to some new siblings of existing Boston-area restaurants, including Casa Verde (sibling to Tres Gatos and Centre Street Cafe), a new Clover, a third FoMu, and a second Grass Fed.Allston got two restaurants that serve Korean-Mexican fusion (think tacos with Korean-inspired fillings) — Coreanos and OliToki. A handful of new pubs opened around town, including The Ginger Man near Faneuil Hall and Lower Mills Tavern in Dorchester. And some temporarily closed restaurants reopened — JM Curley and Cafe Madeleine in their original locations, and Crispy Crepes Cafe in a new spot.
Did we miss a spring Boston proper restaurant opening? Do you know of an upcoming summer (or beyond) opening that should be on our radar? Let us know. Want to learn about what opened in Cambridge, Somerville, and other nearby areas? Head right this way.
