Highlights for the Week Ending July 25, 2014

A few more stories and articles centering on the Boston-area restaurant scene came out over the past week, including a decades-old roast beef joint shutting down to make way for condos, a Todd English spot closing for renovations, and a well-known chef and restaurateur joining up with a pair of popular dining and drinking spots. In addition, our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) included a new review of a Venezuelan restaurant in Brookline, a photo of lasagna from a cafeteria-style eatery in Woburn, and an updated review of a tiny restaurant in the Inman Square section of Cambridge.

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