The trees may still be covered in leaves and it still feels like late summer outside, but fall is indeed here, and there are a lot of restaurant openings on the horizon this season. (Here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come.) This roundup will be updated weekly throughout fall 2021, full of details on the newest restaurants that have opened in and around Boston. (Looking for last season’s openings? Here’s the rundown on summer 2021.)

This roundup was most recently updated on September 28, 2021, including notes on Castle Island Brewing and Bardo’s Bar Pizza in South Boston; Kured in Fenway; BitBar in Salem; Coco Ramen and Flourhouse Bakery in Newton; Fuku in Everett; Gourmet Kitchen in Randolph; PlantPub in Cambridge; and Sahel Restaurant & Lounge in Lowell.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.



Fast-casual charcuterie shop Kured (401 Park Dr., Boston) added a second storefront at Fenway’s Time Out Market Boston on September 27, serving custom charcuterie boxes and cones. The original location opened on Beacon Hill a few months back. [Read more.]

South Boston

Norwood-based Castle Island Brewing (10 Old Colony Ave., Boston) expanded to South Boston on September 23 — an appropriate location, given that its name refers to South Boston’s Castle Island. The new brewery and taproom serves Castle Island’s core beer lineup, such as American pale ale Candlepin, plus special releases, collaborations, and more. There’s also South Shore-style bar pizza from Bardo’s Bar Pizza, sibling to Randolph event space Lombardo’s; the pizza’s dough includes Castle Island beer. [Read more.]

PlantPub (675 W. Kendall St., Cambridge) opened on September 24, bringing fast-casual pub fare and drinks — fully vegan — to Kendall Square. The team behind it includes Pat McAuley, who cofounded Quincy’s former vegan beer hall pop-up Rewild; chef Mary Dumont (Cultivar, Harvest); and investor Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni, who focuses on vegan businesses. On the menu: Buffalo cauliflower wings; a kimchi burger that can be made with an Impossible patty or a house-made veggie patty; pizza; oat milk-based soft serve; craft beers and wines; and an interesting selection of nonalcoholic drinks, like a chamomile hopped tea, several booze-free IPAs, and CBD-infused seltzer, not to mention the most hilarious brand of canned water. PlantPub offers a bit of seating inside and out; diners can also order takeout online.

After David Chang’s fried chicken chain Fuku (114 Spring St., Everett) made its return to Boston in “ghost kitchen” form on September 21, it added an Everett outpost a few days later so that those in the Everett area can get fried chicken sandwiches, tenders, and more via the major delivery platforms.

The team behind Thai restaurant Coconut Newton opened a Japanese restaurant next door, Coco Ramen (757 Beacon St., Newton Centre), on September 22. As of September 28, the restaurant is still offering its “soft opening” menu, which features several ramen options made with a creamy chicken paitan ramen base. There are also a few snacks, such as fried oysters and pork cha shu buns, as well as desserts and non-alcoholic beverages. In addition to indoor seating, there’s takeout and delivery available; order online.

In other Newton news, the team behind Boston and Somerville sandwich shop Mike & Patty’s and Somerville roast beef and pizza shop Hot Box opened Flourhouse Bakery (140R Adams St., Newton) in Nonantum Village on September 23. The new bakery is producing the English muffins and breads in use at Mike & Patty’s, as well as some other baked goods — such as lemon curd cruffins and everything bagel dinner rolls — for consumers as well as wholesale accounts. While delivery, pop-up menus, and a full retail space are in the works, customers can currently preorder online for pickup at the shop. [Read more.]

Farther Out


Sahel Restaurant & Lounge (135 Central St., Lowell) opened on September 23 in downtown Lowell, serving Afro-Caribbean cuisine (“with a touch of French and Cameroonian influence”) from a duo of owners from Cameroon, where their families owned restaurants. Emile Christian Kamadeu and Peter Tamajong are serving dishes like suya beef, oxtail stew, a Cameroonian nut stew called ndole, and more. The sizable restaurant fits 200 hundred in the dining room, and there’s also a large lounge. The restaurant reportedly works with a Merrimack Valley organization, UTEC, to hire at-risk youth.

Medford’s popular Neighborhood Kitchen, which draws inspiration from Haitian as well as Asian cuisines, now has a sibling out in Randolph: Gourmet Kitchen (1179 N. Main St., Randolph), which opened on September 22. The menu includes an oxtail sandwich with Caribbean flavors; jerk lamb lollipops with djon djon rice and plantains; honey pineapple wings; fried red snapper; and more. The casual space has some seating inside, and takeout is also available, as is delivery on all the major platforms.


Salem arcade bar and restaurant Bit Bar (278 Derby St., Salem) opened in its new space on Derby Street on September 22, a move from its old space in a former jail on St. Peter Street. Food service requires a table reservation through the end of October, with indoor and outdoor seating available; reserve online. Here’s a look at the current game selection, and here’s the food menu, with options like “loaded Tetris tots,” an elk burger, Buffalo mac and cheese, and more. Accompanied minors are allowed before 8 p.m., but Bit Bar is 21+ from 8 p.m. on.
