ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES

Breaking News in Lobster Rolls

The Langham has this new outdoor terrace. And as we all know, outdoor terraces are useless unless they contain some sort of summerlong pop-up serving lobster rolls, chowder and strawberry shortcake. And some iced tea cocktails and spiked lemonade wouldn’t hurt either. Those never hurt.

Mon-Fri, 11:30am-2:30pm and 4:30-8:30pm, The Langham, 250 Franklin St, 617-451-1900

Beacon Hill’s New Korean Spot
RUBBER SEOUL

Beacon Hill’s New Korean Spot

It’s the oldest trick in the book: quietly turn your Japanese restaurant into a Korean spot when no one’s looking. Well, the folks behind what was Ma Soba just got away with it. The Korean-BBQ-heavy menu is all new, but they kept the sushi bar. You’ll let it slide.

Now open, Seoul, 156 Cambridge St, 617-973-6680

Say Hello to King St. Tavern
IT’S GOOD TO BE THE KING

Say Hello to King St. Tavern

The Ames hasn’t really done anything with its bar space since Woodward closed last year. But they’ve finally gotten around to adding a new lounge area, four-course prix fixe dinners and live music seven days a week. They’re calling the whole place King St. Tavern. Feel free to do the same.

Bar soft-opens May 29; restaurant opens Jun 1; King St. Tavern, 1 Court St, 617-979-8203

Saturday
Behold: A Taco Truck Brick-and-Mortar
TACO TO ME

Behold: A Taco Truck Brick-and-Mortar

The Taco Truck: it’s like a transformer. But instead of turning into a giant CGI robot, it’s just converted itself into a big room in Harvard Square equipped with fried-catfish tacos, pork quesadillas and Mexican street corn. No word on Michael Bay’s involvement.

Sunday
No, These Cars Are Not New Cars
ANTIQUING

No, These Cars Are Not New Cars

The Larz Anderson Auto Museum is in full lawn-show mode. And for the first time, they’re holding an “Antique Day” stocked with cars, motorcycles and hot rods born before 1989. Sorry if you were expecting Hummers for some unexplained reason.

Monday
Tiki Parties All Summer
TIKI TO SUCCESS

Tiki Parties All Summer

Let’s look at the clues:

—A Beach Boys soundtrack.
—Polynesian dim sum from Whisk.
—A guest bartender slinging mezcal mai tais.
—Tiki mugs shaped like Tom Selleck.

Sounds like Wink & Nod’s trying to start some sort of weekly Tiki Night party. And it’s too late to stop them.

Mondays starting Jun 2, 5pm-2am, Wink & Nod, 3 Appleton St, 617-482-0117
