South End

Five Horses Tavern Coming into Former Columbus Cafe Space
The South End will welcome a new bar and restaurant to Columbus Avenue in the coming months, in the space once occupied by Columbus Cafe. Five Horses Tavern, a Somerville restaurant located in Davis Square, is expanding with a second location at 535 Columbus Avenue in the South End.

As if the opening of Cinquecento wasn't enough for the foodies of the South End, Estelle's, a new southern-comfort inspired modern eatery, opened for business in early December. Located at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Tremont Street (782 Tremont St.) the new restaurant is under the direction and expertise of partner Brian Poe of Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake and executive chef Eric Gburski of Cambridge's East Coast Grill. 


A Six Pack for $85? Beer Fans Line Up for Rare Belgium Brew in Belmont
Dressed warmly in a heavy-duty parka, Galen McQuillen joined approximately 40 people waiting at the front door of Craft Beer Cellars' front door at 7:30 a.m. (an additional 10 were at the back door) at 51 Leonard St. to be given a number to purchase one of the great and rare beers brewed around the world. Westvleteren XII, dubbed the "Holy Grail of Ales" by the Los Angeles Times, was being sold on Dec. 12 (that would be 12-12-12) at 12 noon at Craft Beer Cellars, one of only 150 locations around the US and three in Massachusetts. 


New Barismo Opens
The new, larger Barismo is opened on Dec. 20, according to Boston Eater. Barismo’s Pete Cannon told Eater that the shop will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The new spot, at 171 Mass. Ave., is just a laundromat away from the old. For more information on the move, see
