Summer is a popular time for restaurant openings and this week Boston is welcoming some great new additions.
From classic Boston favorites that are reopening to some of the country's best loved chains finally coming to Boston, residents have a lot to choose from and look forward to.
1- Dig Inn, Back Bay - Open Wednesday, July 13
This is the first Boston location for this popular chain and the first location outside of NYC. With two more locations planned for Boston before the end of the year, diners can expect grains, salad bowls, regionally-sourced ingredients and the chain's first breakfast menu. Focused on fresh, healthy foods and a clean and contemporary interior, it is a long anticipated opening with delicious, seasonal menus.
2- Mamaleh's, Kendall Square - Open Tuesday, July 12
Mamaleh's is a modern Jewish delicatessen with a full service restaurant, bar and counter service. Starting off with breakfast until 11am and lunch until 4pm, there are plans to have a dinner service as well within a few weeks. Diners can expect pastrami on rye, lox, hand crafted bagels and other classic deli items. The whole deli and market emulates a classic NY deli and offers fresh meals and bakery options.
3- Porto, Back Bay - Open Monday, July 11
Opened by the same team behind Trade, Porto is a hideaway in busy Back Bay, with a seafood-focused menu and Mediterranean flavors. Think oysters and a 'sea board' in place of a cheese board, with rotating delicious, fresh options. The menu will include small sharing plates as well as larger dishes. As well as being open for dinner and lunch there will be brunch served on the weekends. There will also be a great selection of delicious drinks to compliment the dishes.
4- Aquitaine, South End - Reopens Tuesday, July 12
This classic French bistro has been in the south end for 19 years and is reopening after a facelift. Known for an affordable wine list and its delicious French selection, the renovation has allowed the restaurant to update its gorgeous interior while remaining classically French. The cocktail bar has been expanded, a 14-seat patio is making its debut and the menu has been equally overhauled. The new dishes and design hope to transport you away from Boston to a classic bistro in France.
