All the News That’s Fit to Eat

Keeping track of Boston’s dining scene can feel almost as daunting as eating all the french fries on your plate at Coolidge Corner Clubhouse. Chowder scours the Internet for the latest good news and the one thing that could drive us away from ice cream.

Good News
Attention Logan passengers departing from Terminal B—the $33 million expansion of the Airmall will open this afternoon. Traveling foodies can enjoy restaurants like Todd English’s Bonfire and the Legal C Bar, or to-go concessions from UFood Grill and Dunkin’ Donuts.

Speaking of Bonfire, the Back Bay location recently named Bobby Bean its new executive chef.

To us, fall means short days and saying goodbye to regular al fresco dining. But the news isn’t all bad—Prezza has updated its menu to include seasonal dishes like Butternut Squash Arancini and a Pumpkin Napolean.

Mayor Tom Menino may not have moved City Hall to the Waterfront yet, but restaurants are congregating there en masse. City Bar and M.J. O’Connors will open locations in the Westin Boston Waterfront on October 15.
