Ah, the Boston foodie circle of life. It’s a beautiful thing, no? Although we sadly reported on the closing of Temper Chocolates this morning, we now bring you good news of restaurants still to come. Aside from those we’ve been anticipating for a while (Vlora, Gaslight & Green Light, and Prime 128, to name a few), here are two of the most exciting new openings.
•Despite our earlier dire report on the mass closings in the Filene’s building, there is at least one exciting new development in the Downtown Crossing dining scene. Kingston, a “modern American restaurant, bar and cafe with a French twist” will open at 25 Kingston Street next month. Lunch, dinner and late night fare six nights a week sounds like a boon for those working in Downtown Crossing or staying at one of the area’s hotels.
•Perhaps most intriguingly, Joanne Chang (of flour bakery + cafe) and her fiance Christopher Meyers (of Great Bay, Radius, and Via Matta) are getting ready to open an as-yet-untitled Asian cafe at the corner of East Berkeley and Washington in the South End with Alison Hearn (B&G; Oysters, Ten Tables) as the chef. No name has been settled on yet, but the Globe reports that contenders include Bang Bang, Rice, Formosa, and the eminently understandable Myers & Chang.
