Let's grab a bite with Eater Boston.
HUB-WIDE—Dumplings are indisputably awesome, so here's a map of 10 Asian-inspired varieties that you need to get in your mouth ASAP. Start in Central Square with Thelonious Monkfish's cranberry crab rangoon and work your way down to Myers + Chang in the South End for dumplings stuffed with edamame, mustard greens, and wasabi.
HUB-WIDE—If you're wondering where to eat right freaking now, the Eater Heatmap has been updated. Newly added: A4 Pizza, Frost Ice Bar, Pier 6, Ribelle, and Shanghai Social Club.
CENTRAL SQUARE—The rumor has been floating around for a few months, but now it's really happening: the Tasty Burger empire's next expansion is slated for the former Lyndell's space on Prospect St. The bakery recently closed, but its 125-year-old Somerville sibling on Broadway will remain open.
PORTER SQUARE—Ramen fans, rejoice! Yume Wo Katare is back from summer vacation, and the tiny space has even been renovated. Get ready to wait in line, gorge yourself on a heaping bowl of noodles, broth, and pork, and get congratulated if you finish.
