It’s Tuesday afternoon! Time for us to discuss all the rumors we’ve heard over the past week, or at least the ones that pertain to Boston restaurant openings and closings. For the second week in a row, we have way more openings than closings. We’ll call that a good thing. Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
•An as-yet-unnamed sushi restaurant will be opening in Brighton Center in October, at least if Craigslist is to be believed. The whole thing seems a bit strange. They’re opening in November, but seemingly have not yet hired a chef, created the menu, or fully designed the space.
•Chowhounder BarmyForthrtingayPhipps is reporting an intriguing new development on Brighton Ave: a very-soon-to-open coffee shop called 2nd Cup Cafe (sadly, no apparent relation to the much-beloved Canadian chain Second Cup). Google knows nothing, but rumors are swirling on Chowhound of Wifi and tasty treats.
•More news on the aforementioned Liberty Hotel. It seems we were wrong last week…the jail-themed lobby bar is actually called Alibi. Sexy!
•We know, we know. You were just thinking “you know what Boston needs? Another steakhouse!” Your prayers have been answered, as The Beantown Bloggery is reporting that national chain Daily Grill will soon open in the old Applebee’s space in the Pru.
•Finally, Cantabridgia points us toward the site for The Ice Cream Project, a vegan ice cream parlor slash space for film, writing, and (sigh) performance art slated to open in Kendall Square this November.
