No weekend, no foul.

MEAL ESTATE

Taco News. Pizza News, Too.

When chicken tinga tacos and horchatas call: New JP taqueria Chilacates answers.
When you’re in the mood for thin-crust pizza and a comeback story: Café Quattro, formerly of Beacon Hill, is alive and kicking again in the South End.

That should keep you occupied for at least two lunches.

Now open, Chilacates, 224 Armory St, Jamaica Plain, 617-909-5341; now open, Café Quattro, 817 Harrison Ave, 617-557-9291

Boston Public Market. It’s Here Now.
TO MARKET WE GO

Boston Public Market. It’s Here Now.

Boston Public Market’s been open for... a couple hours. But they’ve already earned a greatest hits list. These are they:

—Hand-pulled ramen noodles from Noodle Lab.
—Smoked-haddock tacos from Boston Smoked Fish Co.
—Union Square Donuts from Union Square Donuts.

In summary: ramen, tacos, donuts.
