Cathedral Station opening, Taco Truck’s brick-and-mortar, and more

Cathedral Station

South End pub Cathedral Station (1222 Washington St. at Perry Street) opens June 12, replacing the Red Fez. “We invite everyone from the neighborhood and the LGBT community to come in and meet the team,” the staff writes in an e-mail. “We welcome everyone from all walks of life to come in and enjoy themselves, as we want to cater to everyone without exclusion.” Expect a classic pub menu, plus a pool table, dartboards, and a patio.

Boston Burger Company

Boston Burger Company will launch a Boston food truck within the next few weeks. Owner Paul Malvone admits that while cooking up his roster of 28 burgers is difficult on wheels, he’ll offer seven burgers a day. “We’ll have our staples,” he says. “The hot mess, the mac attack, and a few other daily specials.” He’s also considering a third restaurant location at 1105 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, between Harvard and Central squares. There are currently branches in Somerville and Boston.

Taqueria La Victoria

Delicious news for fans of Beverly’s excellent Taqueria La Victoria: It's moving closer to Boston, with plans in the works for an Arlington Center outpost. Signs on the windows at 12 Medford St. promise a prompt opening. The taqueria has burritos, quesadillas, tortas, and tacos with fillings like Mexican sausage, pork skin, and beef tongue.


Papagayo and the Taco Truck

More Mexican news: A fourth branch of Papagayo Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar has opened at Somerville’s Assembly Row (300 Grand Union Blvd. at Foley Street). The after-work staple has potent margaritas and tableside guacamole. In Harvard Square, the Taco Truck food cart has launched a brick-and-mortar (83 Mt. Auburn St. at JFK Street) in the former Felipe’s space. There’s a kids’ menu and plenty of options for vegetarian and vegan spice-seekers.
