The RemDawg is expanding his dining empire. NESN color commentator Jerry Remy plans to open Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grille next spring, according to the Herald.

The Herald reports that La Groceria in Cambridge will close on May 17. While it’s sad to see the decades-old restaurant close its doors, Craigie Street Bistro owner Tony Maws will open a new restaurant in the space this fall.
