Highlights for the Week Ending June 12, 2015

Several more stories and articles focusing on the Boston-area restaurant scene came out over the past week, including a well-known local chef planning to open a BBQ spot, two downtown Boston bars being forced out to make way for new development, and a legendary pizza place planning to expand further into the Boston area. In addition, our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) included a new review of a snack shack and ice cream stand west of Boston, a photo of steak from a Dorchester restaurant, and a question on favorite sandwiches.

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