Financial District: The Langham Hotel is set to open BOND (yes, the capitals are on purpose) this winter. BOND will focus on international cuisine with sandwiches for lunch and small plates for dinner. We really hope the bartenders won’t be inundated with people asking for their martinis “shaken, not stirred.” [Boston Restaurant Talk]
Fenway: Tragedy has struck the Fenway neighborhood. Or it just may feel that way for residents and our fellow Simmons alums. Brown Sugar is closing by the end of the year. This is a practically a neighborhood institution, and it’s sad to see it go. If Thornton’s and El Pelon ever close, we’ll shed tears. [Beantown Bloggery]
