China King opens today, reports the Globe, in Chinatown's old Rainbow Cafe space. According to Devra First, scallion pie and peking duck (which requires 24-hour notice) are the things to order. But that's not all!
Meanwhile, Allston welcomes all-you-can-eat sushi purveyor Maki Maki (or Maki Maki Maki Maki Maki...) to the Brighton Mills plaza on Western Avenue. An e-mail sent to Grub Street announces that the place held its grand opening last night.
As we reported a few months ago, members of the Allston Civic Association were worried that the sushi place would lure "outsiders" and thought that stores like KMart might be more useful to residents. We'd disagree.
