CAMBRIDGE—It's been a good week for restaurant openings. The Beehive team opened their new Harvard Square project, Beat Hôtel, last night, and Patty Chen's Dumpling Room is now softly open in Central Square with a grand opening planned for Sunday. And Churn 2, an ice cream vendor selling out of a shipping container on Harvard's campus, could open this weekend.
SOMERVILLE—Two restaurants on the edge of Porter Square are closed indefinitely after the building facade collapsed suddenly. Zoe's Gourmet Chinese Cuisine and Mixtura could be closed for months for repairs and structural assessments. Zoe's owner has said that she may be forced to look elsewhere to reopen, and Mixtura is trying to place employees at sister restaurant Machu Picchu.
HUB-WIDE—Plan your eating adventures for the next few days with this map of weekend-only specials, from Cutty's special pork sandwiches to late-night ramen at Uni.
