It was a good week in restaurant news — particularly for vegans. As the week draws to a close, here’s a look back at the most-read stories this week, from a forthcoming vegan beer hall to a new Peruvian restaurant to a look at a few of the best-designed restaurants in town:

  1. A Cult Brunch Hit in Easton Is Getting a Sibling Spot in a Really Old Church: This week’s suburban news round-up included some details on the upcoming Farmer’s Daughter sibling in Easton, Towneship.
  2. America’s First Vegan Beer Hall Will Open in Quincy, Serving Local Beer, Coffee, and More: Rewild will offer vegan food in a social beer hall environment. (A couple of vegan breweries on the West Coast took issue with this headline; Rewild, as a beer hall and not a brewery/brewpub, is slightly different. Either way, it’s the first of its kind around here.)
  3. Celeste Is Your Friendly New Home for Ceviche and Pisco: The Peruvian restaurant debuted this week in Somerville’s Union Square. Follow the link for a sneak peek inside the space and a look at some of the food.
  4. Power Duo to Open Chickadee in the Seaport District Later This Year: No. 9 Park alums Ted Kilpatrick and John DaSilva have a project in the works.
  5. Where to Eat Cajun-Style Seafood in Boston: Whether in a bag or in a bowl, flavor abounds. Here’s where to throw on a bib and eat some saucy, spicy seafood.
  6. New Vegan Food Truck Rolls Out Seitan Nuggets and Sandwiches Across Boston Soon: Bartleby’s Seitan Stand hits the road April 1 with a few Boston spots on the food truck schedule.
  7. Designing Intimate, Occasionally Skull-Filled Restaurant Interiors Is Half the Battle: The restaurant group behind Yvonne’s, Ruka, and Lolita understands that vibes are as important as plates.
  8. February 2018 in Review, From Fried Chicken to Champagne Vending Machines: Last month in openings, closings, top news, and more.
  9. Boston’s Fast-Casual Korean Food Scene Could Get a Little Bigger: A bibimbap-focused spot called Perillas is in the works.
