SOUTH END—The hotly anticipated jm Curley sibling Merrill & Co. opened in the South End on Monday, serving dishes like hush puppies, sweet tea fried chicken, and a "big ass bone-in ribeye" that feeds two to four people. Here's a look inside.
DOWNTOWN CROSSING—The newest Legal Sea Foods concept, Legal Crossing (aka "LX"), has opened in the fancy Millennium Place development in Downtown Crossing. From late-night seafood towers to adult profiteroles, there's a little something for everyone. Peek at the interior.
HUB-WIDE—The revamped Restaurant Week, Dine Out Boston, begins on Sunday. Eater Boston has been combing through the menus to figure out where the best (and worst) deals are. Covered so far: $15 lunches, $20 lunches, $25 lunches, and $28 dinners.
FORT POINT—The long-awaited Pastoral is hopefully opening on Monday, serving Neapolitan pizza and more. Here's a look inside the space, including a cool wall made of windows.
