Highlights for the Week Ending May 8, 2015

A few more stories and articles centering on the Boston-area restaurant scene came out over the past week, including an iconic pastry shop deciding to reopen, a local chef and restaurateur winning a coveted award, and landmark dining spot south of Boston closing and liquidating. In addition, our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) included a new review of a Chinese restaurant in Weston, a slideshow of places that are literally hidden, and a question on the best sushi spots in the Boston area.
