July 2014 Openings and Closings

Red Bird in Waltham, the New American place with a former Franklin Cafe chef as its chef/owner, is aiming to open in the old Tuscan Grill spot sometime in July.

Per Eater Boston's most recent update, Fuji and Legal on the Mystic are both set to open in Assembly Row.

Mother Juice is set to open late in the month in Kendall Square.

I'm guessing Fort Point's Bastille Kitchen opening will slide into July.

Zoe's Gourmet Chinese is hoping to open in July after recovering from a building collapse.

    1. Just talked to someone manning the Violette Bakery farmers' market stand in Watertown today. Violette will be looking for a new location because of a rent hike.

        Wasn't their location on Mass. Ave empty for several years before they moved in there and had rapid turnover before that? Must be some landlord.

      2. According to FB Page:

        Munch Mobile Kitchen, new food truck:

            According to Wickedlocal Waltham, Watch City owes a great deal in back taxes and is for sale.

              Oh thank god! Their "craft beer" was so bad it was a complete disservice to the industry.

                  Local brewing talent Portico brews out of their space as contract/gypsy brewers though.
