Northern Spy to Open at Paul Revere Heritage Site in Canton

by Marc Hurwitz

A new restaurant is on its way to the southern suburbs of Boston, and it will be located at an historic riverside space.

The Tables section of The Boston Globe states that the group behind Loyal Nine in Cambridge will be opening Northern Spy in Canton, with the dining spot residing inside the copper rolling mill at the Paul Revere Heritage Site on Revere Street, just west of the center of town. The post says that the new restaurant will feature regional comfort food such as chowder, clam dip, crab on Parker House rolls, burgers cooked on a wood-fired hearth, and French fries that will be taken "very seriously," with lunch, dinner, and brunch being offered. If all goes as planned, Northern Spy could be opening sometime in September.

Paul Revere Heritage Site includes both the rolling mill and a barn, with an earlier Canton Citizen article mentioning that the complex may include a museum along with a park.

Loyal Nine, which first opened in the spring of 2015 on Cambridge Street, also features regional New England fare.

The address for this upcoming restaurant in Canton is: Northern Spy, 96 Revere Street, Canton, MA, 02021.

La Neta to Open in Boston's Back Bay

by Marc Hurwitz

Last summer, we reported that a brand new Mexican restaurant appeared to be in the works on Newbury Street in the Back Bay, and the person behind it was also behind several local dining spots. Now that we have learned that he will be opening another restaurant at a different location on the same street.

According to an article from Eater Boston, Allan Rodriguez of El Centro and La Catrina is planning to open La Neta at 221 Newbury Street, which is about a block east of where Rodriguez had been looking to open another spot called Taqueria Urban Kitchen. The post says that La Neta will be a fast-casual eatery that offers tacos, tortas, enchiladas, burritos, and more, with the plan being to open sometime later this spring or early in the summer.

Locations of El Centro can be found in the South End, Belmont, Brookline, and Dedham, while La Catrina can be found in Brighton; it appears that plans for Taqueria Urban Kitchen have fallen through because the address is so close to the upcoming La Neta, but if any new information comes, we will post an update here.

by Marc Hurwitz

An Indian restaurant in Jamaica Plain is moving to a new location nearby.

According to a Facebook post from Steve Garfield, Bukhara Indian Bistro on Centre Street is moving to Washington Street in Forest Hills on April 1, with Universal Hub stating that it will take over the space that had been home to Tonic until it closed in 2013 (a location of Grass Fed also took over the Tonic space but it shuttered in 2017). It is not yet know what might be going into the current location of Bukhara; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

Universal Hub mentions that the space that Bukhara is moving to is two doors down from another Indian restaurant (Tikki Masala).

The address for Bukhara is currently 701 Centre Street, with its upcoming address being 3698 Washington Street.

[March 20 update: According to a comment within the Facebook thread above, Bukhara is apparently moving into the space in Forest Hills while the Centre Street space is being remodeled; the plan appears to be for the restaurant to move back to its current home once renovations are complete.]

Dig Inn May Be Coming to Boston's Fort Point Neighborhood

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a New York City-based group of  "farm-to-counter" restaurants could be opening a fourth location in Boston.

According to a Twitter post from @danpflock, Dig Inn is apparently looking to open in Fort Point, with the tweet showing an alteration permit that mentions the eatery is seeking to open in a vacant commercial space on Thomson Place. If it does get approval to open there, the new location of Dig Inn would join others at the Pru, on Washington Street in Downtown Crossing and on Boylston Street across from Copley Square.

Dig Inn, which first started out in 2011, offers locally-sourced healthy food options including "market bowls" that have a grain or salad base with items such as chicken, beef, and salmon.

An exact address is not yet known for the proposed location of Dig Inn at Fort Point, but the permit notice does show an address of 19-39 Thomson Place. (The website for Dig Inn is at https://www.diginn.com/)

Vaanga Opens in Former Curry House Space in Downtown Boston

by Marc Hurwitz

A new restaurant that describes itself in a rather unusual manner has come to downtown Boston.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Vaanga is now open on Water Street, moving into the space that had been home to a location of Curry House. The logo for the new eatery says that it is a "Crazy Indian Joint" while the "about" section of its Facebook page says it is "The most unauthentic Indian fare in Downtown Boston serving the kickass styles of Indian food." The website for the restaurant is not up and running as of yet, but its Facebook page mentions such items as samosa burgers and dosas along with "DESI Tacos and BAERITTOS." (As soon as we see a full menu, we'll post an update here.)

Curry House first opened on Water Street in the summer of 2017, taking over the space where Beantown Hoagie had once been; the original location of Curry House remains in operation on Beacon Street in Brookline's Coolidge Corner.

The address for Vaanga is 102 Water Street, Boston, MA, 02109. Its Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/BostonVaanga/
