Coming Soon: A new to-go market is slated to open in the North End thanks to Jen Royle, who runs The Table (445 Hanover St. at Salutation Street). She’ll have an antipasto bar, a coffee bar, sandwiches, homemade arancini, desserts, and provisions, in a space decorated with vintage wine barrels and six-foot lemon trees. Stay tuned for a firm opening date.

Openings: Elsewhere in the North End, Taranta (210 Hanover St. at Cross Street) has launched a pupusa pop-up. La Reina serves pupusas, tacos, and burritos for contactless pickup and delivery, alongside their traditional Italian menu, beer, and wine.

Takeout: In the Seaport, Gather (75 Northern Ave. at Fan Pier Boulevard) is now serving takeout Thursday through Sunday from 4 until 8 p.m. On the menu: fish tacos, clam chowder, stir-fry, and burgers.

In the South End, Sally’s Sandwiches (492 Tremont St. at East Berkeley Street), from the folks who brought you Blackbird Doughnuts and the Gallows, offers dinners for up to four people; pre-order beef chili, lasagne, roast chicken, veggie pot pie, and pantry items such as chicken broth and pickled veggies. Meanwhile, those who miss Cinquecento — destroyed by a recent Harrison Avenue flood — can find many of their Italian dishes on the menu at Gaslight Brasserie du Coin (560 Harrison Ave. at Waltham Street), beginning on May 30. It’s open daily from 4 p.m.
