The Monday Report: Just Another Manic Monday

Another week of early mornings begins. Feel free to cry and throw your alarm clock on the ground. Just don’t kick someone in the face like that Tae-Kwon Do Olympian from Cuba. That’s just mean.


Beacon Hill: We’re excited to say that the Beacon Hill rumor mill declares that b.good will be filling the space left empty by the Spotted Apron at the bottom of Cambridge Street. Seriously, if one more nail salon opens in Beacon Hill we’re gonna get pissed. [Boston On The Go]

Brookline Village: T. Rex Taqueria is opening (hopefully next week) on School Street, and the buzz is positive. No, it’s not dinosaur themed, just a strange name. [Chowhound]

Downtown Crossing: Good news! Marliave has reopened under new ownership. Downtown Crossing looks like it is getting revamped with new restaurant openings. Let’s hope this continues! [Boston Restaurant Talk]

Leather District: Al’s State Street Cafe is opening a second location in Lincoln Plaza, appropriately named Al’s South Street. [Chowhound]

Porter Square: Stone Hearth Pizza is coming to Porter on Mass Ave. With successful locations in Belmont, Sudbury, and Needham, we assume their thin-crust pizza made with organic and local ingredients will go over well in Cambridge.

Theater District: What used to be the West Street Grille will soon become Max and Dylan’s. Click the link for an extremely informative and elaborate craigslist post. [Craigslist]

Woburn: The South End’s popular Masa is opening a second location in Woburn, of all places. We think this will be a great after work spot for the cubicle dwellers of route 3. [Boston Restaurant Talk]


South End: Thai Village has closed its doors on Tremont Street. It was probably very hard to complete with House of Siam. [Boston Restaurant Talk]


East Cambridge: Hold back your tears, B Side has been sold! We’re not sure what’s going in, but the owners of 2 popular bars in Amherst and Northampton are supposedly taking over. Let’s hope their new venture can live up to the B-Side. [Chowhound]
