Boston's First Five Guys Will Open on Monday


At long last, the first urban Five Guys will open downtown on Monday at 58 Summer St., just in time for everyone to flee the neighborhood for Thanksgiving. Ah, well, it's still better than driving to Medford.

Meanwhile, slightly swankier British sandwich company Pret a Manger opens at 185 Franklin St. downtown on Friday morning, and according to a release will donate its unsold food at the end of each day to the Boston Rescue Commission, a homeless-aid organization. Lush lunching! [BRT, Earlier]
