Best sources for restaurant openings in Boston area?

avadanish Nov 28, 2011 11:17 AM

Hi all, I'm looking for the best sources on new restaurant/cafes that may be opening around town. Do you consider the Boston Globe Food Section a good source, or would you recommend a specific blog or other website? (and I do see that there are frequent discussions about this very topic on this board). Thanks for any recommendations you can provide.

    the globe food section continues to dumb down and get lamer each month, i swear. it's not a deep source for new openings, only the occasional paid-for pr blurb.

    this site is great for this as is bostonchefs.com

      Right here! There are several knowledgeable posters on this site (myself NOT included). Don't touch that dial!!

        Exactly. I really enjoy the monthly post listing the openings and closings. I think that the Boston Hounds are doing a great job of making an easy to follow list.

        Few sites stay on top of pending restaurant openings and closings quite as well as Boston Restaurant Talk: http://bostonrestaurants.blogspot.com/ The author is a frequent Chowhound contributor, too.
