Newly added!

When Teppo, the super-hot Greenville Avenue sushi star, closed down in 2022 after a 27-year run, fans of chef-owner Masa Otaka mourned — but happily he has bounced back with this high-design jewel at Preston Center, where the specialty is yakitori, done with Otaka’s familiar flair.

Tomar El Sol Cabanas at Loews Arlington Hotel Arlington

The name of this seasonal poolside gem might be loosely translated as “to bask in the sun,” and that’s one possibility here while you sip a frozen margarita or a goblet of dry rosé. But there’s a glass-walled indoor setting, too, where the burgers and tacos and other classic lunchtime fare will keep you going for the whole long lazy day.

When the beloved celebrity-magnet Society Bakery closed in the spring of 2023, it was hardly the end of the road for proprietor Roshi Muns and her famous cupcakes: This expanded, relocated reinvention of the place has all the same tempting confections, but also a menu of bright, fresh lunchtime offerings — and a dedicated tea sommelier.
