Temazcal Tequila Cantina to Open at Legacy Place in Dedham

A pair of upscale Mexican restaurants will be joined by at least one more location, with a new one on the way to a mixed-use development near Route 128.

According to a couple of sources, Temazcal Tequila Cantina is planning to open at Legacy Place in Dedham, with one source hinting that it could be moving into the space where Wicked Restaurant and Wine Bar had been until closing last month. (A page within the Legacy Place website confirms that it will indeed be coming sometime this year.) Once it opens, the new dining spot will join others in Boston's Seaport District and MarketStreet Lynnfield--and it will either be the third or fourth location depending on whether a planned outlet in the former Papa Razzi space in Burlington opens before/after it.

Temazcal first opened its doors in the Seaport District in April of 2011, with its Lynnfield location opening in October of 2014. The website for Temazcal can be found at

Cucchiello's Bakery in East Boston to Move to Saugus

An Italian bakery in East Boston that has been in business for 70 years is moving to the suburbs--and its current space could become home to a donut chain.

Universal Hub is reporting (via a Facebook post) that Cucchiello's Bakery on Bennington Street is going to move to Saugus, with the plan being to open in a space in Cogliano Plaza on Lincoln Avenue. An earlier article from the East Boston Times-Free Press had mentioned that the space where Cucchiello's Bakery resides may be turned into a location of Dunkin' Donuts, with UH saying this as well, though it does not appear that this has been completely confirmed as of yet. The Facebook post--which is from Michael Cucchiello--mentions that they are also looking for a new home in East Boston as well, but for now, they will be focusing on their upcoming move to Saugus.

Cucchiello's is a neighborhood bakery in Day Square that is known for its breads, pizza, calzones, subs, cookies, cannoli, and more.

Chloe Coscarelli, by CHLOE Part Ways; Name Change Possible

A New York-based group of vegan restaurants that recently expanded to Boston has cut ties with one of its founders, and it could result in a name change for the eateries.

Eater New York is reporting (via the Wall Street Journal) that Chloe Coscarelli and ESquared Hospitality have gone their own ways after a legal battle, and now Coscarelli is seeking to get her name taken out of the group of dining spots, saying that "I will protect the integrity of my brand." The relationship between Coscarelli and ESquared started to unravel last year, even as the group of restaurants expanded, including a new one that came to Boston's Seaport District last month. (Another new shop is being planned for the Fenway.)

Chloe Coscarelli is known in part for being the first vegan chef to win the Food Network's "Cupcake Wars."

Uno Pizzeria and Grill in Waltham Has Closed

A longtime location of a Boston-based group of deep-dish pizza spots has closed down, and it appears to be a quiet--and sudden--closure.

According to a source within the restaurant industry, Uno Pizzeria and Grill in Waltham is no longer in business, with a tweet from @EyesOnWaltham seeming to confirm this today as well. This is the second Uno location to close of late, as the outlet in Cambridge's Harvard Square shuttered this past September; it looks like locations in Boston (3), Braintree, Burlington, Dedham, Framingham, Revere, Swampscott, and Woburn remain in operation.

Uno was established in Chicago in 1943, with Uno Restaurant Holdings now having its headquarters in West Roxbury.

The address for this now-closed restaurant in Waltham was: Uno Pizzeria and Grill, 155 Bear Hill Road, Waltham, MA, 02451. The website for all locations can be found at>

BRIGHTON SNIPPEATS: Gluten free pizza in Brighton, Brighton Tap Takeover, Brighton Food Tours booze edition, Am.Lou. spread and SODT

Last week I headed over to Fatto A Mano to try out their gluten free pizza bases. Now this was my first sample of gluten free pizza but in the past I have seen some very sorry examples, either tiny, pre-frozen or just very, very sad. FAM have waited until now as they have been perfecting the dough which uses a rice and potato based flour blend. Impressive to look at (almost identical to a regular pizza) with a real cornicone and blistering to boot. It was a little spongy for me but Alice Reeves over at Gluten Free Dining RAVES about it in her review so I would say it's the answer to Gluten Free diners prayers. You can top it with vegan cheese and even wash it down with gluten free beer. Bravo

Brighton Tap Takeover is back on 31 March to 2 April 2017 in pubs across Brighton which sees craft beer breweries taking over the taps at 14 of our best Brighton pubs. Each of the brewers takes over the taps of their partnered pubs to create the world’s greatest pub crawl, with each of the city centre pubs within a 10 minute walk. As well as great beer, the pubs are gearing up for a weekend of fun, food, beer education and great music. Wristbands for the event - which come pre-loaded with four beers, swag bag and priority entry are available now for £15 from I'll be running a competition for wristbands over on my Instagram page shortly!

Also on the booze are the fabulous team over at Brighton Food Tours who are offering a monthly drinks special, starting Sat 8th April 3-6pm - featuring mostly alcoholic drinks, some not… but all designed to surprise and delight. Their tours are really fun and informative with plenty of hidden gems which showcase our city's best food and drink spots and producers.
There have been a few really good new Brighton boutique food producers cropping up this year. One is AM.LOU, a Moroccan inspired breakfast spread made from 3 organic ingredients; almonds, culinary argan oil and honey. It's flipping delicious! I polished off the whole jar bar what my kids could tear away from me. It's like a rich, decadent and grown up version of peanut butter, toasted, sweet almonds with a real savoury kick from the argan oil. It's made by hand in small batches here in Brighton and available in Flour Pot Bakery, Hisbe or via their website. A must try.

Hygge was a MASSIVE trend for this year and nothing says it more than big blankets and comfort eating. But slaving away in the kitchen for hours on hend is not hygge - no, no. Enter SØDT (pronounced soot, which means sweet in Danish) who hand make frozen, ready to bake Danish pastries. Take them out of your freezer, heat the oven and 20 minutes later you have delicious freshly baked treats. Order from
