NuVo, which started out as Gusto back when Roslindale was a culinary wasteland (you know, like 1999), has closed. Could this be where Roslindale's rumored Ethiopian restaurant goes in? In the meantime, the Birch Street Bistro, Sophia's Grotto and Geoffrey's will continue to hold up the bistro fort.

Down in Hyde Park, the top-hat tuxedo place on River Street is now for rent:

Awww: Hyde Park native Manny Delcarmen recently gave the Boston Public Schools a $10,000 check for use at the Grew Elementary School in Hyde Park - the proceeds of a charity event he organized at Ron's Gourmet Ice Cream and Bowling in, no surprise, Hyde Park (and yes, it is all kinds of awesome that Hyde Park has an ice cream place that doubles as a bowling alley).

Neponset Village is so large it would actually make Boston physically bigger.

Boston Police report some beefy guy (45, 5-foot-9, 220 pounds with a "muscular" build) in a white Honda Odyssey is cruising the area trying to pick up women - and then refusing to take "no" for an answer. One woman reports he kept following her from Dana Avenue, where she initially declined his ride, past the McDonald's on Hyde Park Avenue.

Police say the mini-van has Mass. plates: 9WM55.

Boston Restaurant Talk reports that C.F. Donovan's, "a great little restaurant and pub" on Savin Hill Avenue, is opening a new location on Hyde Park Avenue. That would explain all the renovation work going on at the old Mario's.

Yeah, yeah, Papa Gino's. But the fire-ravaged place was kind of a gaping hole right in the middle of Cleary Square (who will miss the mural of the kid pulling a tapeworm out of his mouth?). And it looks a lot nicer than the old, pre-fire one.

Industrial sunset

From Cleary Square to the Readville train station, Hyde Park Avenue and its side streets make up a fascinating corridor, mixing the remains of Boston's industrial past (although, yes, some of the factories still remain operational today) with nature views.

Above: Sunset from across the Amtrak/commuter rail tracks.

Below: Sunset over the Mother Brook, at its confluence with the Neponset River at Dana Avenue. Question: Why is the brook still clear while the river (a small piece of which you can see to the left) is frozen over? What's in the water?

Two years after it was initially scheduled for replacement, Readville's gateway to East Dedham, the Sprague Street bridge, has finally been shut down for demolition. The Joe is none too pleased that the project will take two years:

WTF!?!?!? I NEED THAT BRIDGE!!! The detour is like 10+ minutes!! It's useless to use the detour cause it will be quicker to go someplace further away! ARRRGHHH! ...
