Two months after suffering some serious water damage from a burst sprinkler head, JM Curley reopened its doors in Downtown Crossing, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. The 21 Temple Pl. restaurant received an unexpected surprise in February when the pipe dumped around 10,000 gallons of water into the restaurant.
JM Curley got to work immediately to remove the damaged areas and rebuild the space to its former glory. The restaurant shared news of its reopening on Twitter, posting a series of photos of the new space, as well as a fresh list of blackboard specials.

Across the river, another damaged restaurant made its glorious return, debuting its newly renovated, pool table-filled space in Kendall Square. Flat Top Johnny's, which closed last August after a ventilation system fire in the complex at 1 Kendall Sq. caused extensive smoke and water damage.
The restaurant held an official launch of Flat Top Johnny's 2.0 over the weekend, becoming the first of a handful of damaged restaurants in the complex to reopen. Beantowne Coffee, The Blue Room, and Belly remain closed, but all are making progress.
