So many summer openings in Boston proper were new locations of existing brands. We saw the openings of two more Sweetgreens, two more Clovers, and two satellite pop-up locations of FoMu, as well as the first Massachusetts arrivals of out-of-town brands Dig Inn and Lady M. Beard Papa's got a new location, as did Santouka Ramen, Pressed, and Emma's Pizza. A new Wahlburgers opened at Logan Airport, and Downeast Cider House expanded from Charlestown to East Boston. We also saw some familiar teams embark on new projects, such as the opening of Porto by the Trade team, Il Molo by the Frattarolis (Lucia), Doña Habana by the team behind Vejigantes and Merengue, and Dumpling Kingdom from the Dumpling Cafe and Dumpling Palace team.
Plus, Haley.Henry Wine Bar brought tinned seafood to Downtown Crossing, Lucy's American Tavern took over an old Hollywood Video space in Dorchester, Hi B3ar introduced Allston to Thai-style rolled ice cream, and lots more.
