Welcome back to Morning Briefing, an almost-daily round-up of mini news bites to kick off the day.

Patio Alert

The Museum of Fine Arts will open a small patio cafe in July by the Huntington Avenue entrance, reports Boston Magazine, and it will most likely be open on weekends and on Wednesday evenings, serving a compact menu consisting of a couple sandwiches, a salad, and various flavors of gelato and sorbetto, plus potato chips and soft drinks.

Hot Diggity Dog

A satellite location of Castle Island classic spot Sullivan’s is slated to open today inside of the Hood Milk Bottle by the Children’s Museum in Fort Point, as previously reported. It will serve a smaller menu than the main location — hot dogs, lobster rolls, soft serve, and a few other items.


The Improper Bostonian shares some updates on Certified Meatball Company, a forthcoming Boston Nightlife Ventures restaurant that was first announced back in April 2015. Originally slated for a Davis Square space, it will actually open in South Boston (429 W. Broadway) early next month. Per The Improper, the restaurant will serve a customizable dish that includes a choice of meatballs (beef, spicy Korean pork, and more), sauces (such as roasted garlic marinara or spiced herb yogurt), and add-ons (a fried egg, for example); various noodly sides that pair well with meatballs; and pre-set entrees, such as shrimp balls ‘n’ grits and slow-roasted turducken balls.

One Thing You Should Eat Today

Wagyu. On. Fire. This one’s a splurge at $32 for just five pieces of flaming meat, but if you feel like dropping some cash, the Fuego Wagyu is one of the most impressive bites at Ruka (505 Washington St., Downtown Crossing, Boston), in terms of both taste and presentation — bulgogi beef futomaki (“fat rolled sushi”) with A5 Miyazaki Wagyu beef, scallion, and peppers. And fire.
