And, now, heaping helpings of Eater Boston!
HUB-WIDE—Quick, go eat all eleven of these latkes before Hanukkah ends! Here's Boston's definitive potato pancake guide, spanning a myriad of cuisines and including everything from upscale to diner fare.
NORTH END—A Boston legend is no more now that Michael Mercogliano, the "Mike" of Mike's Pastry, has died. Mike lived to the ripe old age of 90, all the while making sure that untold legions of cannoli fans had their fill.
SOMERVILLE—At first Eater heard that something new was headed to the space that was once neighborhood hangout The Paddock. And then, in some of the year's biggest restaurant news, it turned out to be a new project by Oleana and Sofra chef Ana Sortun. What? Here!?
BROOKLINE—If Boston's food-obsessed could nominate just one restaurant to open a second location, surely it would be Strip-T's, which rocketed to glory this past year due to rockstar NYC chef Tim Maslow taking the helm at his father's old Watertown diner. Well, that's happening: Maslow is expanding to a second location in Brookline's Washington Square. And yesterday Eater spoke with Strip-T's general manager Jonathan Fenelon, who happens to be designing the new space.
CAMBRIDGE—On Saturday, Fenway Park executive chef Steve "Nookie" Postal will give the world a sneak peek of his new Jewish barbecue restaurant concept Steinbones. Head to Crema Cafe in Harvard Square for a taste of fried matzo balls and more.
