Tuck in your napkin and pass to the left, it's Eater Boston!
SOUTH END/BROOKLINE—The Shawmut Ave Mexican restaurant El Centro - which is one of the few places in all of New England to serve Sonoran-style cuisine - is expanding to Brookline Village. Expect another El Centro to pop up there by the end of the year. Sadly, that means the Tibetan restaurant Tashi Delek, which is in the future home of the new El Centro, is leaving for good.
EAST BOSTON—So many great restaurants in Boston, so few of them floating. Not for long. The owner of Boston Harbor Cruises plans to change all that with the 350-seat The Moorings, which, if approved, would bob right off Eastie.
SEAPORT DISTRICT—What was formerly an empty kiosk is now a cute, little waterfront restaurant called 75 on Liberty Wharf from the people who run Cheers. There's only 35 seats, but luckily there's a fire pit outside for those who can't get one.
CAMBRIDGE—Fenway Park executive chef Steve "Nookie" Postal is opening his own restaurant in the Watermark II apartment tower. It might be called Commonwealth, and his upcoming Jewish barbecue venture in NYC will be called Steinbones.
