There are currently only four Dunkin' (you know, we used to call them Dunkin' Donuts) in Jamaica Plain. And there's a possibility that a fourth one is coming to the neighborhood in the near future. Jes Donuts, Inc., a Dunkin' franchisee, is scheduled to appear at the Boston Licensing Board to open a new restaurant at 37 S. Huntington Ave. The desired hours of operation are from 5 am to 9 pm, according to a public notice on Boston.gov.
If approved, it would be the fourth Dunkin' in Jamaica Plain, and join the franchise stores at 315 Centre St., 684 Centre St., 757 Centre St., and 7 Walk Hill St. This was first reported by Universalhub.com.
Jerk chicken, curry vegetable stew, pulled jerk pork are just a few of the scrumptious offerings at the newest restaurant in Jamaica Plain -- Jamaica Mi Hungry -- which recently opened in Jackson Square. Jamaica Mi Hungry started off as a food truck, and this its first brick and mortar business in Boston. They've also had a seasonal restaurant in Hampton, New Hampshire. The restaurant is owned by chef Ernie Campbell, and his partner Aquila Kentish is the general manager, and recently had a baby! The restaurant offers entrees such as oxtail braised in root beer ale, and curry goat, which come with two sides such as sweet plantains, mac and cheese, and dill slaw.
The owner of Doyle's has said the iconic restaurant that first opened in 1882 is closing, and that he has sold the liquor license to a steakhouse. “It’s very sad,’’ said Doyle’s owner Gerry Burke Jr to the Boston Globe. “I grew up here and I’ve had a wonderful childhood. It’s been my identity for as long as I can remember. It’s a terrible thing and I’m as sad as I can be.
Starting June 9 there will be a week of Boston For All events, including a free run and walk, a restaurant week, and an art sale will raise money for girls' empowerment, refugees, and legal advocates for immigrants. “We know our community is looking for a chance to help our neighbors, and the variety of opportunities to get involved offers everyone easy entry to be a part of the movement for an inclusive nation,” said Boston For All organizer Jeremy Fischer, about the week that is being organized in partnership with District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley and state Rep. Nike Elugardo, D-15th. The events will benefit three different organizations promoting justice for vulnerable people. The beneficiary organizations are:
Redesen Accion Venezuela - a local organization focused on providing assistance to Venezuelan refugees settling in the Boston area;
Komera - an organization working for the education and empowerment of girls in Rwanda;
The Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network - a volunteer organization for legal advocacy supporting neighbors targeted and detained by ICE. With a focus on offering in-court support, connecting those in custody to legal aid and helping them to make bond, BIJAN is an important force in the local movement for immigration justice.
Jamaica Plain has an amazing array of cuisines and soon it'll have a new type as the Boston area Jamaica Mi Hungry food truck is planning on opening a brick and mortar store in Jackson Square. Jamaica Mi Hungry, which has a brick and mortar store in New Hampshire, would be opening its first Boston area storefront at 225 Centre St. That location had been the home to Mooyah Burgers, Fries and Shakes, which closed in November, after only being open since June 2017. Jamaica Mi Hungry is the creation of chef Ernie Campbell, who grew up in Jamaica, and honed his culinary skills at country clubs, hotels and schools. He decided that Boston was missing the cooking that he grew up with and decided to start his own food truck.
