Popular Chinese restaurant Bernard's has reopened at THE STREET in Chestnut Hill. Patch spoke to General Manager Allan Lam and bartender Tim Tighe about what makes the restaurant such a local hotspot.
When Bernard’s closed its doors at the Mall at Chestnut Hill, a nearly audible cry of dismay arose from around Newton and Chestnut Hill. Longtime patrons of the popular Chinese restaurant wondered where they would dine locally for their favorite Asian dishes. During Patch's interview earlier this week, a customer came in to the restaurant (which had not yet opened for the day) and spoke to the gentleman manning the front desk. “So, are you really open now?” she inquired. When this was confirmed, she continued, “I’m so glad! When I went to the Mall (at Chestnut Hill) and saw that you had closed, my heart just sank. But then I saw the big red sign out front here, and I came in to make sure it was true. I am so glad you are back!” And they …

The old City Sports/Century Bank building has been reduced to rubble. Meanwhile, a new City Sports officially opened last week, along with a new Pottery Barn and Sports Cub/LA.
As we noted earlier this month, the former City Sports/Century Bank building at 37 Boylston St. in Chestnut Hill is no more -- and we recently caught some of the clean-up on video. This site will soon be the home of a three-story, mixed-use building that will include retail space, office space and potentially restaurant space. The project is part of owner WS Development's redevelopment of the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center, which is now rebranded as The Street. Meanwhile, City Sports has officially reopened a few doors down in a new, 115,000-square-foot building on the former Macy's site.
