Well, either way, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the notable stories from the coverage you may have missed last week.

  • Clinton Street Baking Company finally debuted its expanded dining room on New Year’s Day. The expansion is more than a year in the making, and was forged at the expense of Min’s Market.

  • Samy Mahfar received approval from the city for his new ten-story residential project at 255 East Houston. It’s an L-shaped development that includes two buildings, including one on the Suffolk Street side.
