WASHINGTON SQUARE—Hotly anticipated Ribelle, the new Brookline project from Tim Maslow of Strip-T's, softly opened this week and grandly opens on Monday.

REVERE—Take a brief interlude with this hilarious rap video from the staff at Kelly's Roast Beef. "You know where to find me in the summer, brah."

CAMBRIDGEBon Appetit has announced its fifty Best New Restaurant nominees, and two Massachusetts spots made the list, both in Cambridge: Puritan & Co. in Inman Square and West Bridge in Kendall Square. Eventide Oyster Co. in Portland, Maine also made the cut.
