May 2012 Openings and Closings

What's on the horizon for restaurant openings and closings in the Boston area? I know that Rosa Mexicano is supposed to open on the waterfront May 8, Yakitori Zai should be opening in the South End within the next couple of weeks, and Happy's is on the verge of opening in the Fenway. Others?

          Thanks. I should have known. Everything is on 3rd.

    1. I stopped for the first time at Raja and Rana's Indian Market on 3A in Burlington yesty. They had signs all over announcing the April 23 opening of The Mughals, an Indian restaurant in the same line of stores on the east side of the street, but closer to Dunkin Donuts. Can't find a website for it. I drove by but did not go in. The market and resto are affiliated in some way.

      1. Happy's opens tomorrow according to

        1. Jonathan's Bar & Grille should be opening sometime this month. It is located in the former Papa Gino's space on Needham St. in Newton.

            I've been thinking they are about to open every time I've driven by there for the past 3 months.

            My current bet is we find in a few months that it's some TV Reality show gag

              Is this the same Jonathans as the one in Ogunquit?

            2. Per the posts on it sounds like they're planning to open West Bridge this month. They put some beautiful wood doors on the place the other day, but the inside has a ways to go.

                Sounds like next week for West Bridge. They really threw the interior together quite fast. Walked by last night and took a peek in the windows. They used lots of whites, which I like quite a bit. Should do wonders to brighten the place up a bit. Both the Blue Room and CBC are dark, so it'll be nice to have something a little different right there.
