    Frozen Hoagies is Opening a New Location

    This week's Restaurant Roundup includes ice cream sandwiches, a Route 1 closure and an asian sandwich shop. (Published Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019)

    A downtown Boston hotel that had been home to a restaurant owned by one of the region's best-known chefs is shutting down this week.

    The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting that the Ames Boston Hotel on Court Street is closing tomorrow (Tuesday, September 24) as the property is being sold to Suffolk University. As mentioned in an earlier Boston Globe article, the plan is to convert the property into dorms, though Adam Castiglioni's blog post mentions that those plans apparently still need to be approved by the city.

    The Ames Hotel is where Cultivar had been until closing early this year; the upscale restaurant opened in the spring of 2017, with Mary Dumont (formerly of Harvest in Cambridge) and her wife Emily being behind it.
