Restaurant Openings: Something New; A Rebirth; and Reinvented with a Move

There's been several additions to the Jamaica Plain restaurant scene of late. There are some familiar faces in old places, familiar faces in new spaces, and a boom of flavor. The only Scottish restaurant in Boston, The Haven, recently opened in a new space at The Brewery Complex. The Haven had been in a very small space in Hyde Square for more than 10 years, and moved to the old Bella Luna and Milky Way Lounge space, which is a lot bigger and includes a patio. Already The Haven has hosted a whiskey tasting, a quiz night, are preparing for a comedy night and of course they've been serving delicious Scotch.


Flavor Boom, a Gourmet Fast-food Restaurant Opening on Centre Street in June

A soon to be vacant spot on Centre Street will quickly have a new restaurant in its location that specialize in slow-cooked Asian and Mediterranean food. Signs in the window at 703 Centre St., indicate that Flavor Boom! will be opening in June. This is the second location for the restaurant, with its first in Watertown. Carrot Flower had operated from the commercial spot, but closed in May.
