Cronuts and Bronuts; Radius and Avila Closing; More!

It's time for a scrumptious helping of the latest foodie news with Eater Boston.

BACK BAY—Peek inside sweetgreen, the environmentally-minded D.C. salad chain that just opened up its first Boston location near Copley. Also on the menu? Froyo, of course.

ASSEMBLY SQUARE—Somerville's Burger Dive is getting its liquor license (spiked milkshakes!), but not without some serious snark from a couple of the commissioners, one of whom thinks that offering alcohol at the casual joint wouldn't be appropriate due to the mothers, children, and elderly clientele.

HUB-WIDE—While the cronut craze hasn't touched Boston too much, cro-nots and dossants can be found in a couple spots, as can bronuts, burger-doughnut hybrids.

DOWNTOWN—Michael Schlow's upscale (yet famous for a burger) Financial District restaurant, Radius, will close tomorrow after a 15-year run. Also closing tomorrow? Avila, a Mediterranean restaurant in the Theater District from the owner of Davio's.
