Tables: Bastille Kitchen to open

Fort Point’s long-awaited French bistro Bastille Kitchen (49 Melcher St. at A Street) is slated to open on Monday. It’s the latest from restaurateur Seth Greenberg, known for his work at Mistral (223 Columbus Ave. at Stanhope Street). Presiding over the 160-seat dining room is chef Adam Kube, who has worked at several Ritz-Carlton restaurants. On his menu: lobster leek tarts, gnocchi a la Parisienne, savory flatbreads, and bouillabaisse. There’s also a raw bar, as well as two lounges. The bistro will be open for dinner nightly.

Sherman Cafe owner Ben Dryer and Eat Boston founder Aaron Cohen, known for staging food events throughout the city, will open Gracie’s ice cream parlor in Somerville (22 Union Square) next month.

Chef Brian Poe (Estelle’s, Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake, the Tip Tap Room) will take over Inman Square’s Bukowski Tavern (1281 Cambridge St. at Prospect Street), which has closed for renovations. Poe expects to reopen the restaurant within four months, showcasing a revamped menu of elevated pub food that includes wings, burgers, tater tots, and “some fun vegan options, like a black quinoa burger,” he says. But never fear: Poe promises that Bukowski will retain its beloved dive bar ambiance. “We’re not going to be too polished — you can still talk like you’re at Bukowski’s,” he says, laughing.

Crave — Mad for Chicken in Chinatown (75 Kneeland St. at Tyler Street) has opened, selling hand-brushed Korean fried chicken in soy garlic or spicy garlic flavors. The New York-based chain also sells ramen, dumplings, kimchi-topped fries, tacos stuffed with spicy beef or pork, and scorpion bowls.
