Welcome back to AM Intel, a round-up of mini news bites to kick off the day.

Airport Food

Logan Airport’s dining options are in the process of getting a significant upgrade with the addition of lots of local favorites, starting late last year and heading into this year. Chinatown’s Shōjō (9 Tyler St., Boston) made its airport debut over the weekend in terminal C (by gate C19), open daily from 5 a.m. to 30 minutes before the last departure with grab-and-go meals; seated breakfast, lunch, and dinner; all-day congee; and a full bar. Some Shōjō favorites — such as the shadowless fries, Shojonator burger, and Wu-Tang-style tiger ribs — are on the menu, plus some new grab-and-go dishes meant to hold up well on a flight, like dumplings and a soba noodle salad.

Tomorrow, March 26, the Bruins Bar also officially celebrates its opening at Logan (it debuted earlier this month.) Located in terminal A, the hockey-themed sports bar serves salads, sandwiches, and other comfort food, and it has a full bar.

A New Spot for a Caviar-Filled Party

No-reservations Back Bay seafood gem Saltie Girl (281 Dartmouth St., Boston) — an intimate spot that fills up quickly — has added a new private dining room, the “Side Room at Saltie,” that fits groups of eight to 14 people and features big windows for people-watching as well as a roaming bar cart. While the restaurant’s full menu is available in the Side Room, there are also group-friendly specials, such as a duo of two-pound salt and pepper fried lobsters and a double bone dry aged rib eye that can feed four to six, not to mention trays of uni and plenty of caviar. While Saltie Girl itself continues to only accept walk-ins, reservations are now open (and required) for the Side Room at Saltie.
