Cafe Landwer to Open within The Circle Development in Brighton's Cleveland Circle

by Marc Hurwitz

A chain of cafes based in Israel is going to be opening its second Boston location, and this one will be located within a new development that includes senior housing.

According to a Patch article, Cafe Landwer is planning to open at The Circle, a mixed-used complex that is located at the former site of the Circle Cinema and Applebee's in Brighton's Cleveland Circle. Once it opens, the new dining spot will join another outlet on Beacon Street in the Fenway/Audubon Circle section of Boston, and based on the menu at that location, expect to see such items as roasted eggplant in tahini, baked cauliflower, schnitzel, grilled chicken breast, eggplant and feta pizza, and hummus.

The Circle, which is currently in development, is home to a new senior living community called Waterstone at the Circle, while a 162-room AC Marriott hotel is also going to be opening at the site along with at least one other restaurant.

The website for the Landwer Cafe outlet in the Fenway/Audubon Circle area of the city can be found at http://www.landwercafe.com/

City Works Eatery and Pour House to Open at Arsenal Yards in Watertown

by Marc Hurwitz

A small group of dining and drinking spots that claim to be the "best beer bar restaurants" in the United States will expand to the Boston area.

The Boston Globe is reporting that City Works Eatery & Pour House is planning to open at Arsenal Yards, a new development that is replacing the old Arsenal Mall in Watertown. The article says that the restaurant and bar will move into one of the existing spaces at the site rather than the Arsenal Mall space itself, which is being torn down. Once it opens, expect to see classic American fare along with a variety of craft beer options at City Works Eatery & Pour House, whose parent company is Chicago-based Bottleneck Management and currently has a handful of locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Minnesota, Florida, and Texas.

Arsenal Yards is expected to be complete in the spring of 2019, so City Works Eatery & Pour House could be opening around that time.

Nobility Hill Tavern to Open in Stoneham

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a new restaurant and bar is coming to a northern suburb of Boston, replacing a longtime Italian spot that shut down last year.

According to a message from The Passionate Foodie, Nobility Hill Tavern is planning to open in Stoneham, moving into the space on Main Street where Felicia's had been for more than 50 years until closing down last fall. The website for the upcoming dining and drinking spot has little information at this point in time, but it does says that the place will feature New American comfort food and that it is now hiring for all positions. As soon as we find out more about Nobility Hill Tavern, we will post an update here.

The address for this upcoming restaurant in Stoneham is: Nobility Hill Tavern, 423 Main Street, Stoneham, MA, 02180. Its website will be at http://nobilityhilltavern.com/

Colette to Open within Porter Square Hotel in Cambridge

by Marc Hurwitz

A couple of years ago. we reported that a steakhouse was planning to open within a new hotel in Cambridge. It now appears that the dining spot coming to the now-open hotel will not be a steakhouse after all, but a restaurant with French influences.

According to an article from Cambridge Day, Colette is going to be opening in the Porter Square Hotel on Mass. Ave., with Loic Le Garrec and Sandrine Rossi of Petit Robert Bistro and Frenchie in Boston's South End being behind it. The post mentions that the upcoming eatery will be an "elegant" spot with a dining area, a bar, and an outdoor patio, with the menu possibly featuring French cuisine with "modern American twists" based on the food offered at Petit Robert Bistro and Frenchie. A porterhouse steak is expected to be on the menu in a nod not only to the steakhouse that had originally been planned for the place, but also because the porterhouse steak reportedly got its start in Porter Square in the late 1800s, with the area once being home to cattle yards.

If all goes well, Colette could be opening within the Porter Square Hotel in July or August. (The hotel has been open since the fall of 2016.)

The address for the Porter Square Hotel (and Colette) is 1924 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02140. The website for the hotel can be found at http://www.theportersquarehotel.com/

Rebel Rebel to Open at Bow Market in Somerville

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a wine bar is coming to a soon-to-open development in Somerville, and the person behind it comes from a couple of award-winning Boston-area restaurants.

According to an article in Boston Magazine, Rebel Rebel is planning to open within Bow Market in Union Square, with Lauren Friel--who had been wine director at both Sarma in Somerville and Oleana in Cambridge--being behind the place. The article says that the new venture will focus on all-natural wines with no additives, while bar snacks will be offered as well to go with the wines, and the circular bar space will be set up in such a way to allow for wine classes and visits with winemakers.

In addition to working at Sarma and Oleana, Friel has also done consulting at such places as Committee on the Boston waterfront and the Wine Bottega in the North End while also doing freelance writing.

Rebel Rebel is one of a number of businesses coming to Bow Market (which will be located between Bow Street and Somerville Avenue), including Saus, Jaju Pierogi, TanĂ¡m, Maca Macaronerie, Hooked Fish Shop, The Comedy Studio, and Remnant Brewing.
