Townie-hangout-turned-food-nerd-favorite Strip-T's will expand, which is just about the biggest news to hit Chowhound ever. Our mates at Eater Boston say that Tim Maslow, who famously toiled under David Chang in New York and then returned home to work for his dad, Paul, plans to open a 70-seat restaurant in Brookline's Washington Square. Details are sketchy at this point, but look for it come March. Does this mean that the skeptical Watertownies can have their old restaurant back?
Our personal favorite from the Tim-ified menu: the lunchtime special of Boston mackeral po boy with fried egg sauce, tomatilla salsa, cheddar, lettuce. Hopefully that becomes a Brookline menu mainstay. And hopefully it's easier to get into this location, too, though we pretty much doubt it.
