Restaurant Openings: Tonino, Mike & Patty’s, Happy Lemon, and More

A high-end Italian restaurant, a breakfast sandwich shop, and a boba tea spot -- Jamaica Plain has several new restaurants offering very different fare. Claire Makley and Luke Fetbroth opened Tonino on Oct. 20 in the former Little Dipper space (669A Centre St.) in partnership with local restauranteur David Doyle and his wife, Mari Pérez-Alers. Tonino is an Italian restaurant inspired by the trattorias, enotecas and aperitivo bars of the smaller neighborhoods surrounding Rome’s city center. The menu includes tomato pie, which has a direct influence from Fetboth's childhood trips to Philadelphia.

Two Jamaica Plain residents will be opening a new Italian restaurant on Centre Street that will serve handmade pastas, Sicilian-style pizza and more. Claire Makley and Luke Fetbroth, will be opening Tonino at 669A Centre St., which was last home to the Little Dipper. They hope to open the restaurant later this summer. The duo have close to 25 years of combined experience in the food and beverage industry, and this is their first venture together. Makley's career includes being the general manager of the very highly regarded Hojoko izakaya, after starting as a hostess at the o ya restaurant.
