People who favor curry in the Theater District can no longer assume a Tantric position

Tantric India Bistro in the Transportation Building has shut its doors forever, after serving up Indian food for 12 years.

Our heartfelt thanks for your past dining visits over the years, and your many kind and complimentary words and encouragement, and we wish you the very best in your journeys.

Murdered teen was just days from fleeing East Boston back to Guatemala

The Globe talks to relatives of Cristofer Perez de la Cruz, murdered in East Boston earlier this month, had bought a ticket to return to his native Guatemala, rather than get caught in the violence between MS-13 and the rival 18th Street gang.

Friday's sweep of alleged MS-13 members is beginning to provide the background for numerous murders and other acts of violence in East Boston and neighboring cities in recent years.

Kevin Cullen reports that Rogelio Alvarado, an MS-13 member, opened fire on a rival gang member on a Blue Line train at Maverick - hitting that guy and a bystander.

The Herald talks to City Councilor Annissa Essaibi-George about MS-13 recruiting at East Boston High School, where she taught until she was sworn in as a councilor this month, as well as City Councilor Sal LaMattina, who attended a community meeting on violence the night before the arrests.
