Chef Jason Bond tells me that the 100-seat Concord branch of Cambridge’s Bondir is open for business. The restaurant, at 24 Walden St., is now taking dinner reservations on OpenTable. Expect a menu that changes each day, with an emphasis on local fish and pasture-raised meats, plus a savvy selection of American and European beer and wine. On that note, there’s also a bar, open until 11 p.m.

It was a haven for ravenous Tufts students and Davis Square’s culinary cognoscenti. But, sadly, Somerville’s luscious and tiny DooWee & Rice, home to smoked salmon bao baos and crispy chicken heart fries, has closed, Eater Boston reports. Now Somervillians will have to cross the river for the magical, fluffy sandwiches: Owner Duy Tran plans to partner with Allston’s Wonder Bar (186 Harvard Ave.), adding a menu of more than 20 creative bao. Less convenient for us, he’s also contemplating a shop in London.
