Lost bunny at Mistral Bunny

At brunch on Nov. 8, somebody left behind this obviously well loved bunny at Mistral in the South End. The restaurant reports they're keeping the rabbit well fed, but would love to reunite bun and owner.

H/t Brinley.

Seth Greenberg, who gave us Mistral, is planning a similar restaurant on Melcher Street in Fort Point.

Greenberg told the Boston Licensing Board today he hopes to open an "upscale modern French bistro" called Bastile Kitchen/Chalet this September in a building now under construction at 49 Melcher St.

The $2-million venture will feature a 230-seat main dining room and a 70-seat area for private functions. Greenberg is proposing to buy the liquor license now held by Four Green Fields on Washington Street downtown.

Devra First reports that the fancy-shmancy French place that replaced Bob the Chef (sorry, Bob's Southern Bistro) in October is already out of business. Next up: Upscale burger joint? Oh, wait, how about a soul-food place. With music. Nah, that'll never work.

Courtney Scott-Howard gives Gaslight, a French brasserie at 560 Harrison Ave., good marks for food (and the free parking), but marks it down for the service:

... If your waitress looks like the girl you wished your brother married, ask for a new table.

First there was British/Japanese import Wagamama. Now Boston Restaurant Talk reports the Boston area is in line to get three Vapiano "casual French fresh" restaurants.

Hmm, what about Blimpie, which is slowly circling Boston? It's from westa Worcester, so it's sorta foreign, too.
