As Boston gears up for summer, its restaurant scene heats up with a flurry of new openings. This June, check out three restaurants we're eager to try.

Headroom Hi-Fi

Hi-Fi listening bars, inspired by the coffeehouses (kissa) of 1950s Tokyo, have been gaining global popularity. Now, Boston welcomes its own: Headroom. Located on the second floor of Trillium Fort Point, Headroom is a space dedicated to curated vinyl records and cocktails featuring Trillium’s housemade spirits. The listening room boasts a DJ booth with two turntables and a McIntosh tube amp, ensuring a high-fidelity sound experience. The menu includes New England-inspired dishes such as scallop crudo ($14), deviled eggs with charred onion ash and chicken cracklings ($8), and spring lamb with roasted carrots, feta sumac yogurt, and mint chimichurri ($28). Cocktails highlight Trillium’s gin, vodka, rum, and amari, with playful twists on classics, like the Maraud for Ears, a smoky negroni variant using bergamot-infused gin and Agrumi amaro ($15), and the Ohm, a margarita made with agave, orange liqueur, and Trillium’s house Pilsner ($15). Unlike the traditional no-talking kissa, Headroom encourages group listening and conversation, aligning with Trillium’s mission to bring people together.

The Vermilion Club

Following the success of The Lineup in downtown Boston’s Winthrop Center, Michelin-starred chef John Fraser presents The Vermilion Club, offering a modern twist on the classic chophouse experience. Unlike the casual atmosphere of The Lineup food hall, The Vermilion Club features reimagined classics and a noteworthy cocktail program. As reported by the Boston Globe, expect a 70-plus-drink cocktail menu and dishes like an Iberico pork bacon burger with mustard-stewed melted onions, or a large-format porterhouse.

The Red Fox Lounge & Restaurant

Carbs and martinis make a perfect pair at the North End’s upcoming Red Fox Lounge & Restaurant. With retro, nostalgic interiors, The Red Fox adds a twist to the neighborhood’s Italian dining scene while maintaining classic flavors. Mike Wyatt, Director of Operations for The All Day Hospitality Group, promises old-school charm with modern execution, featuring handmade pastas and imported ingredients from Italy, like Amalfi Coast lemons and Tuscan wildflower honey. The martini menu will include traditional, dirty, espresso, and innovative versions like a cacio e pepe martini. Additionally, a hidden cocktail lounge off the main dining room offers an exclusive martini-sipping experience, similar to the relationship between Farmacia and Ciao Roma, two of the group’s other restaurants.
