Last night (Friday) I was pleasantly surprised to see a "folding sign" outside of Paprika Grille: "Falafel Wrap $5". IT WAS PERFECT!

He's only been in business eight months and people know he has one of the healthiest restaurants in town.

His falafel is very close the quality of MIT's Falafel truck BUT his has a whole bunch more nicely prepped fresh vegetables to choose from.

To me FALAFEL IS EATING A BURGER without eating meat.

Went to seaport grill and the food was below par. Prices are higher and menu more limited.

Tried Happy Belly over the weekend. The menu offers a lot of choices. My wife had a burger on a very tasty brioche roll, while I had the Cuban. Each sandwich came with a side of cold Soba noodles, which were awesome. My wife's burger was *meh* While the roll was good, the burger was way too small and she noticed some gristle in the middle of the burger. The Cuban sandwich was really good, but the pork was a bit on the dry side. It could have used a little bit of sauce to keep the sandwich moist. A shot of mop sauce on the sandwich would have made it a winner. The Ciabatta roll was outstanding. We split the Happy Salad, which we both really enjoyed. The sun-dried tomatoes and golden raisins were a nice touch, and the lettuce was fresh and crispy. I had the antioxidant smoothie and my wife had a glass of sangria. Both very good. We will be back to sample other items on the menu. I just hope they make the burgers a little bigger.

For lack of not knowing where to post this, but I'm sad to say Studio Crepe in Rockport went out of business last week. They weren't getting enough business to cover expenses including rent.

I am very sad because the staff was always friendly, the food good, and it was an ideal dining place for families. I don't know if Rockport is the right place to support a restaurant with a menu as narrowly targeted as theirs, but it's disappointing they couldn't make a go of it.

That IS too bad.

They had open mic night and on another a feature live music.

Studio Crepe was in my top ten percent of healthy eateries.

Transformed a lumber yard into a very pleasant space.

Nice owner and crew - best to all.

Was there a kitchen fire or something at Taco's Lupita? They've been closed and had a cleanup crew there the other day.

They're closed through Sunday. Looks like they're getting their donations to Puerto Rico.
