    [This story first appeared on Boston Restaurant Talk.] Last spring, it was reported that an award-winning group of ramen spots would be opening its second outlet in the Greater Boston area. Now we have learned that the place is up and running. According to a press release, Menya Jiro is now open in Dedham, moving into a space at Legacy Place across the parking lot from Gap and next to Urban Outfitters. The new location of the Japan-based group of restaurants joins another in Cambridge’s Harvard Square, and in addition to ramen and other options, the new outlet also features yakitori-style skewered meats, seafood, and veggies that are grilled over hot coals. Menya Jiro, which also has locations in New York City and is looking at opening another outlet in Boston’s Seaport District, has been mentioned by Thrillist as being one of “The Best Ramen Restaurants in America.” The address for Menya Jiro in Dedham is 756 Legacy Place, Dedham, MA, 02026.

  • Mass. AG Slaps Cleaning Company With Over $65,000 in Labor Violations Citations
    by Matt Fortin on September 26, 2022 at 11:31 am

    A cleaning company is facing over $65,000 in citations for allegedly violating state labor laws, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office announced in a news release Monday. MP Star Professionals, which operates as Cleaning Pros, and its owner Christian Perez, were issued the citations for several alleged violations, including failure to pay wages, failure to furnish payroll records, failure to permit employees to earn and use sick time, failure to pay overtime, forcing workers to pay for their own supplies and for wrongly classifying employees as independent contractors, according to the release from AG Maura Healey’s office. The AG’s Fair Labor Division began its investigation into the company after getting complaints from workers, the agency said. The company is based in New York, but is frequently contracted to clean Boston area properties. The company allegedly failed to produce records in response to multiple payroll demands from the Fair Labor Division, according to the news release. The AG’s office had to instead resort to using self-reported records from workers during an “extensive audit”, which determined the company “failed to pay wages to employees, failed to reimburse workers for the cost of cleaning supplies, failed to pay overtime for all hours worked beyond 40 in a week, prevented workers from accessing earned sick time and in some instances, retaliated against workers for calling in sick by not assigning them work”, according to the news release. Prosecutors also allege that MP Star misclassified workers as independent contractors. In a related case, Florida-based company CorpHousing Group has been cited $15,000 for allegedly failing to provide records to the AG’s office. CorpHousing frequently contracted with MP Star to have properties it manages in the Boston area cleaned. The AG’s office claims that MP Star targeted Spanish-speaking women “due to language and cultural barriers that can make it more difficult for these employees to assert their rights”. The AG’s office says wage violations come up frequently in the cleaning industry.

  • Man Charged With Punching Woman in the Face, Stealing 7-Year-Old's PlayStation
    by Marc Fortier on September 26, 2022 at 10:49 am

    A Revere man is facing multiple charges after he allegedly broke into a Boston woman’s home, punched her in the face and stole money and a PlayStation video game console that belonged to her 7-year-old son. Andrew Pucci, 29, is charged with assault and battery, home invasion and malicious destruction of property over $1,200. Prosecutors said that around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Boston police responded to a report of a domestic incident on Hanover Street. When they got there, the victim reportedly told officers that Pucci kicked in her front door, entered her apartment and punched her in the face, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said. The woman told police she then fled to the bathroom with her 7-year-old son and locked the door, but Pucci kicked in the bathroom door, kicked two plastic bins being used to barricade the door into her, and then fled when another person arrived at the scene. The woman said Pucci stole money from her wallet, her apartment keys and her son’s PlayStation. The district attorney’s office said the victim refused medical treatment. Pucci was arrested later that night when Massachusetts General Hospital security notified police that he had checked into the hospital’s emergency department. He was arraigned Friday and ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing this week.
