Highlights for the Week Ending September 19, 2014

A few more stories and articles centering on the Boston-area restaurant scene came out over the past week, including an oyster bar possibly coming to the Back Bay, a deal falling through that would have brought a famous pizzeria to Brookline, and the last of the Brigham's ice cream shops getting a new (but similar) name. In addition, our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) included a new review of a restaurant and bar in Quincy, a photo of a bar pizza from a well-known spot in Brockton, and a list of restaurant closings and openings for September (so far).

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