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

Eat Oysters on a Tall Ship

After getting delayed a couple years, the floating restaurant first announced in March 2019 finally opens today, June 30, on the East Boston waterfront (not in Charlestown as originally planned). It comes courtesy of the Navy Yard Hospitality Group, which is also behind waterfront spots Pier 6, Reelhouse, and more. The new restaurant, which is on a tall ship, is called the Tall Ship. The restaurant group describes it as a floating oyster bar, and it’ll play host to live music and other events. Along the pier, refurbished shipping containers will be home to various vendors, and food trucks will be able to park onsite as well.

Buy Wine in Harvard Square

Bertil Jean-Chronberg (The Beehive, Beat Brew Hall) will open a tiny shop for wine and accessories in Harvard Square, Bonde Fine Wine Shop, next week (54 Church St., Cambridge). Bonde will also host events, produce a podcast, and deliver wine locally and ship through the state. The shop will focus on wines sourced from sustainable practices.
