Even during a pandemic, there’s always something to look forward to.
Despite an onslaught of recent closings — and there will, undoubtedly, be more to come — Boston’s restaurant industry remains resilient and hopeful. Chefs and owners are still forging ahead with opening their dream concepts, some working on expansive hotel restaurants with global street food, others putting together a thoughtful bakery program at a neighborhood coffee shop.
This fall, keep an eye out for these 10 restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries to add into your takeout or dining rotation.
B&B Fish You know Jason Santos from Abby Lane, Buttermilk & Bourbon, and Citrus & Salt. Now the chef is going a more casual route with B&B Fish, a seafood spot in Marblehead that he’s opening with Buttermilk & Bourbon chef Jeff DeCandia. Beer-battered fish and chips, fried belly clams, scallops, chowder — all the beachside comfort food you can think of will be on hand, alongside fried beignets, soft serve, and sundaes. Settle in for either indoor or outdoor patio dining when B&B debuts in mid-September. (195 Pleasant St., Marblehead) Projected opening: September 15
