Restaurant News

As G Funk mentioned to you yesterday, we are hoping you are rockin' the vote today. And when you are done, I have some fun news for you today.

It's been in the grapevine for awhile now, but Kendall Square is getting some new restaurants. EVOO, which now resides on Beacon Street in Somerville will be moving over and the same proprietors are bringing Arlington fave Za to the same location as well (this will be Za's 2nd location). Za features great pizzas and salads. Opening is planed for around February 2010.

Sasso in Back Bay is now being called Lucca Back Bay. The menu will be very similar to its parent restaurant in the North End.

The Regal Beagle opened in Coolidge Corner recently. It's from the folks who brought us Church. The vibe has been said to be lounge/bistro and features a bar with 20 beers and fun cocktails. Anything with lobster roll sliders will drag me out of the house. :) The Beagle is located at 208 Harvard Street.

Lastly, Bistro du Midi will open by the end of November in the former Excelsior spot on Boylston Street. Expect upscale dining at its best.
