Eater Boston reported today that Lamplighter Brewing Co. – a brewery and taproom that’s been looking for a Cambridge location since May of last year – hopes to open its doors by the end of 2015.

Super Bowl Sunday: a great day for sports, and an even better day to indulge in beer and foods fit for a linebacker.

[…]


Food Trucks Pave the Way for Brick-and-Mortar Stores

In December 2008, after three months of testing, the folks behind Clover–now a staple in the food truck community–were packing up their truck for good. They’d collected the data that they’d set out to get, tweaked the recipes based on customer feedback and explored their brand. They were ready to make moves on a brick-and-mortar […]


Clarification: The Cellar in Central Square is Still Open

In the “What’s New” section of our January/February 2015 edition, we reported that The Garden at the Cellar (991 Mass Ave.) had closed. We were reporting on a note that appeared on the Garden at the Cellar’s website back in November. However, we would like to clarify: while the Garden at the Cellar, under the leadership of Chef […]


Cambridge’s Best New Year’s Day Brunches

Have your plans for tonight locked down, but nowhere to go come the early bright sunshine of tomorrow? After perhaps imbibing a little too much during the countdown to midnight, the last thing you’ll want to do is get out of bed the next morning. But its a New Year! And New Year’s Day deserves […]


Bukowski Is Back: Tavern To Reopen in Early January

We steeled ourselves back in July when we heard that Bukowski Tavern in Inman Square (1281 Cambridge St.) was to close for renovations until the fall. It was still summer then, when the days are long and you feel invincible. But as summer turned into fall, and then fall into winter, and the pub’s reopening […]


2-Alarm fire hit MuLan on Christmas Eve

It was an unhappy holiday for MuLan Taiwanese Restaurant in Kendall Square (228 Broadway), which sustained damage in a December 24 fire. Wicked Local Cambridge reports that there were no injuries in the 2-alarm blaze, which occurred at roughly 3 a.m. on Christmas Eve.


24-Hour Clover Coming Soon to Central Square (Video)

I’ll be honest: When Hi-Fi Pizza and Subs shut its doors earlier this year, I didn’t think anything could ever fill the void inside that was once satisfied with their wonderful, greasy pizza. Seriously, what was I supposed to do after shows at the Middle East or TT’s? Go home and eat a salad? Not […]


Dining Out in Cambridge This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to catch up with loved ones while scarfing down all the hearty, savory foods you can stomach. It also requires hours (if not days) of prep time, can occasionally reignite years-old family feuds and generally leads to a mountain of dirty dishes that you, as the cook, will somehow be […]


SCOUT OUT: Lone Star Comes to Cambridge

Give me your tired, your poor, your tacos. With much anticipation, Cambridge will open its golden doors to Lone Star Taco Bar. The restaurant will establish a second location in East Cambridge and anticipates serving their first taco in the new space by December 2014 or January 2015. Lone Star Taco Bar (479 Cambridge St., […]


SCOUT OUT: Tropical Paradise in a Glass

Beat Hotel has only been open for a short time in Harvard Square, but it has already become a destination for delectable grub and fancypants libations for any occasion. If wanting a drink on a sweltering summer’s day isn’t an occasion then I don’t know what is. The bar staff are as knowledgeable about their […]


Tasty Burger’s New “Parklet”

In a move that will hopefully bring with it some lovely Summer weather, Harvard’s Tasty Burger will be opening a brand new patio/parklet later this week. Roughly the size of two parking spaces, it’s expected to sit around 15. Finally, all the fun of picnic-table-eating without the picnic-table-food. Or the picnic-table-bugs. Or the picnic-table, really.
