Winter Hill: Deep Cuts Deli and Brewery
Deep Cuts Deli and Brewery is coming soon to Winter Hill with small-batch craft beer, hard seltzer, and an array of sandwiches and snacks, according to co-founder Ian McGregor. The brewery-deli combo will also serve up vegan options, including one sandwich called “The King” with BBQ king oyster mushrooms, slaw, and fried onions all on a potato bun. In addition to the food and drink, McGregor intends to use the space to support local artists by hosting live performances, art shows, markets, and more. 

T&B Pizza dabbles in wood-fired bagels
T&B Pizza tried something new this November and December by offering wood-fired bagels from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays, and has plans to continue on a weekly basis, according to Eater Boston. Chef and co-owner Tim Wiechmann told Eater Boston that the menu is likely to expand to include options like burrata pizza bagels and more.

Rebel Rebel now serves lunch
Winter Hill Brewing Company isn’t the only beverage joint venturing into food. Rebel Rebel began serving lunch from 11:30 a.m. on Mondays through Thursdays this November, according to Eater Boston. The Bow Market wine bar offers only one lunch entree: a French-favorite ham and butter sandwich between slices of baguette, paired with a side of Bonillas potato chips. The ham will change based on what’s available at Formaggio, Rebel Rebel owner Lauren Friel told Boston Eater.

Fortissimo Coffeehouse re-opens a few doors down 
You might have noticed that Fortissimo Coffeehouse officially closed its doors on Halloween, but fear not—the coffee shop is planning to return nearby at 75 Bow St., according to Eater Boston. A reopening date has yet to be announced.
