Happily, Jimmy's Steer House will not be closing, according to a Jimmy's employee I spoke with today. The employee told me that they are not sure where the rumors started, but Jimmy's going out of business is "certainly not the case," and that business will proceed, as usual.
Great news, as this is one of the best steak houses in the Boston area -- affordable and with quality approaching some of the more expensive, high profile restaurants in this category.
Conrad's Restaurant, renowned for its mouthwatering steak tips, plans to expand beyond its Norwood, Mass. and Walpole, Mass., locations with a third restaurant in Sudbury, Mass. Diane, at the Walpole location, tells me that they plan to open Conrad's in Sudbury some time in mid-February 2015. The restaurant will be located at the former Bistro 20 restaurant at 120 Boston Post Rd. (Route 20).
Kane's Donuts, a legendary donut shop dating back to 1955 in Saugus, Mass., had plans to open its second location in Boston in the middle of January but will most likely be closer to February 2015, according to co-owner Maria Delios. Maria told me that they everything "has to be perfect" at its 2 High St., International Place, Boston location before opening. "It's really going to be special!" said Maria, of the impending Boston opening.
Red Stripe, a well-known and outstanding American brasserie at Wayland Square in Providence, R.I., just opened its second restaurant at 455 Main St. in East Greenwich, R.I. Congrats!
