Gallery: Restaurant Patios of Jamaica Plain

Patio season is in full swing. You might think you know every outdoor restaurant space in the neighborhood, but click through — you may find some you didn't know about. My bet for best patio some of you might've missed is the nicely designed space behind Simpli Bar & Bites in Forest Hills. Of course it's hard to make a gallery like this comprehensive. Please add any omissions in the comment section or email me at and I'll add a photo.


Public Auction Set for Noon Wednesday on Egleston Commercial Building

Good morning, JP. Here's your morning memo for Wednesday, April 16. Egleston Commercial Building to be Auctioned: According to a legal notice in the Metro, at noon Wednesday there will be an auction of 3152-3160 Washington St. That's the building that houses Pin Bochinche and three other local businesses. I hear through the grapevine there might be a protest at the auction based on the concern that a new owner might jack up rents.
