Highlights for the Week Ending June 1, 2012

A number of stories and articles focusing on the Boston-area restaurant scene came out over the past week, including a Boston chef being on a Food Network show this week, a Cambridge cafe closing, and an Allston BBQ spot opening a second location. In addition, our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) included an updated review of a pizza and ice cream restaurant in the South End of Boston, a slideshow of ten of the best dishes of 2012 (so far), and a photo of a dish from a Mediterranean eatery in Marlborough.

Below are links to these and other items from the past week:
