Happy Friday! Here's the latest from Eater Boston...

SOMERVILLE—Sure Boston has tons of doughnuts, but most of them are the kind that America purportedly runs on. Now, there's a brand new independent doughnut shop open in Union Square. See here for photos from opening day at Union Square Donuts.

SEXYTIME—All day yesterday, Eater readers voted on 30 different nominees for the title of Hottest Chef in Boston. And here's who won.

FORT POINT—Despite multiple television appearances and a well respected restaurant in Wellesley (Blue Ginger), chef Ming Tsai has never had a restaurant presence in Boston. Until now! Presenting Blue Dragon, Tsai's new Fort Point Asian gastropub.

FINANCIAL DISTRICT—It appears as though chef Michael Schlow will not be renewing the lease at his best known restaurant, Radius. While it is not yet clear what this means for the future of Radius, it will certainly mean big changes for one of Boston's most prominent dining establishments.
