Next month, Rosemont Market & Bakery will open a second location of its neighborhood butcher shop, Rosemont Custom Cuts . The store will be at 5 Commercial St.
Chief butcher Evan Mills will sell meat from pasture-raised cows, poultry, sheep, goats and rabbits (try the rabbit hot dogs!); the animals are all raised by small-scale farms in Maine and New Hampshire without antibiotics or other chemical interventions.

Golden Lotus set to open in downtown location
Another new restaurant, the Golden Lotus, is coming to 511 Congress St., according to papers filed with the city by its owner, Joe Tang.

The Golden Lotus will be located in the space formerly occupied by Shanghai Tokyo; the owners of that restaurant are moving back to Boston. Hours at the Golden Lotus will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Tang hopes to open on Aug. 1.
