A new place for lobster rolls in Marina Bay

Openings: Captain Fishbones in Quincy’s Marina Bay is now Victory Point (332 Victory Road). North End restaurateurs Donato Frattaroli and Donato Frattaroli Jr. oversee the waterfront spot. Pabu alum Anthony Petruno serves lobster rolls, salmon risotto, and whole fresh fish; an al fresco deck area has live entertainment.

Coming Soon: Flour Bakery + Cafe will open an eighth location, in the Seaport’s Innovation and Design Building (One Design Center Place); the company will move its production kitchen to the space as well. “It’s a huge move for us that will hopefully allow us to open up a few more Flours in Boston,” owner Joanne Chang writes in an e-mail. Which is good news for the rest of us.

Brunches: Lolita Fort Point (253 Summer St. at Melcher Street) now serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Enjoy healthy stuff, such as dragon fruit smoothies and avocado toast — or scrambled eggs with French toast, grilled chorizo, and pork carnitas, washed back with fresh-pressed juices.


Deals: In Cambridge, Sumiao Hunan Kitchen (270 Third St. at Binney Street) relaunches a Hunan Hour menu with half-priced appetizer items with a drink purchase, such as wood-ear mushroom salad, dumplings, scallion pancakes, and steamed pork sausage. It’s served daily from 3:30 p.m. until 6:30 and after 9.
