    Boston Dumpling Destination Seized By State

    This week's Restaurant Roundup includes some bad news for Gourmet Dumpling House, a new Trader Joe's and a brewery closing. (Published Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019)

    The team behind an American brasserie with Japanese influences has opened a wine bar in an adjacent space.

    According to an article from Boston Magazine, Le Canular is now open in Boston's South End, taking over the space next to Whaling in Oklahoma that had previously been used occasionally for overflow seating for the restaurant--and which used to be home to Sister Sorel. Tim Maslow took over both the Tremont 647 space and the Sister Sorel space last year, opening Whaling in Oklahoma in the Tremont 647 space; both Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel were run by Andy Husbands, who is now behind The Smoke Shop BBQ in Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville.

    Boston Magazine says that Le Canular offers such options as cheese plates, oysters, marinated vegetables, house-made pâtés, and more, with its menu eventually growing to possibly include burgers and other items, while drinks will focus on wines, all of which will be priced at $13. The bar is currently open from 6:00 PM to midnight Wednesday through Saturday.

    The address for Le Canular is 645 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02118. Its Instagram page can be found at
