Any new restaurants in Back Bay?

Have there been any openings in recent months (since the spring) besides Boston Public Meat and Vlora?

    Vlora, the Greek place. There's been a few posts about it on the board.

        I didn't even know Applebees was gone! Here's a link to Haru, which opens on October 29th:

          That's very interesting...same Haru from NYC. I used to walk by the one on the Upper East Side all the time when my sis lived in that neighborhood. I haven't been though...I hope it's good!

            glad i checked the Haru website. thought it was the same Haru that is in No. Andover, which is not that good.

          Walked past there last night and they are close to ready. It's a LARGE space and there will be lots of seats.

          By the way, it's in the space where Dick's Last Resort used to be. Something else will be going into the space where Applebees used to be.

            Just wanted to give Haru 2 thumbs up. We love in Ny...they will surely beat the competition here. Price point similiar to Douzo.

        I can't think of any others of note. A few have opened up next door in the South End, though, including Gaslight and Coda.

            Sasso opened in 2006, didn't it? I could be mistaken, though...not sure about the sushi place on Huntington....do you know what business it's replacing?
