COOLIDGE CORNER—Boston's froyo explosion continues with the upcoming opening of NYC-based 16 Handles, set to grace Coolidge Corner with its presence on January 26. A Boston location is also apparently on the horizon. The DIY froyo spot has 16 rotating flavors and a "mammoth toppings bar."
NORTH END—In the latest installment of The Gatekeepers, sisters Carla and Christine Pallotta dish on running their seven-year-old Italian restaurant, Nebo. It's steps from the Garden, so they get their fair share of athletes and fans, and apparently Kevin Garnett likes to indulge in their arancini during halftime.
BEACON HILL—Much beloved taco-shop-in-a-gas-station Villa Mexico will be closing its doors at the end of the month, forced out by new construction, but owner Julie King is in the process of trying to relocate to a nearby spot. City Hall members and legions of fans are on her side.
DOWNTOWN CROSSING—Speaking of things inside other things, popular Downtown Crossing bar/restaurant jm Curley has just opened a new restaurant tucked inside itself. Bogie's Place, a windowless speakeasy type of spot inside of the belly of jm Curley, is a reservation-only steakhouse with caviar service, 1920s cocktails, and a classic man cave ambiance.
