Two openings and two closings of note. Do you have a hot tip about a restaurant opening or closing? Let us know.
Quincy: Alba, a Mediterranean steakhouse, is moving to a new location with entirely new staff! Apparently, they are not moving far, from 1495 to 1486 Hancock St. [Craigslist]
West Roxbury: Since the closing of Brigham’s and Yoo-Hoo’s, those who have found themselves in the Centre St. area on a hot summer day have been without the refuge of an ice cream parlor. Fret not: iScream Works is on the way! [Parkway Blog]
Belmont: Cushing Square will likely miss New Asia, for all its round tables and lazy susans (perfect for sharing!) - Belmont and Watertown residents cross their fingers for a nice Chinese sit-down restaurant replacement. [Chowhound]
Brigham Circle: Café Italia, we hardly knew ye! Tony Oliviero’s reasonably-priced Brigham Circle location has closed its doors. For a more formal dinner, you can still visit the Marblehead and East Boston locations. [Chowhound]
