Highlights for the Week Ending December 28, 2012

A few more stories and articles centering on the Boston-area restaurant scene came out over the past week, including a South Station dining and drinking spot shutting its doors, a well-known chef opening a restaurant in the space where a landmark eatery had been, and a downtown Boston lounge closing. In addition, our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) included an updated review of a Hungarian and French spot in Brighton, a blog entry on favorite dining spots (and dishes) of 2012 from restaurant and media people, and a photo of a classic Chinese-American dish from a restaurant in Waltham.

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