Chick Chick Boom Plans to Open in Cambridgeport

A new dining spot is on its way to Cambridge, and it looks like the person behind a nearby restaurant is behind this place as well.

According to a license commission agenda page within the city's website, Chick Chick Boom is planning to open in Cambridgeport, with the address indicating that it will be moving into the Frozen Yogi space on River Street just outside of Central Square. The license application notice mentions that Jamme Chantler is the proposed manager of the 18-seat eatery, which is apparently the same Jamme Chantler who operates Thelonious Monkfish, an Asian restaurant on Mass. Ave. in Central Square. Little else is known about the proposed dining spot, so stay tuned for more details.

The address for this upcoming restaurant in Cambridgeport is: Chick Chick Boom, 80 River Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139.

September 20 update: Eater Boston mentions that Jamme Chantler of Thelonious Monkfish is indeed behind Chick Chick Boom (along with chef Ginger Phomjun) and that the dining spot will focus on chicken, with influences coming from Southeast Asia, Japan, and the United States. A few items expected to be offered include chicken wings, fried rice, and a steamed chicken dish with coconut jasmine rice.]

Plans to Open Third Rail in Former Roslindale Substation Have Fallen Through

It looks like a long-awaited dining spot from a well-known Boston chef and restaurateur is not going to be happening after all.

Universal Hub is reporting (via Roslindale Village Main Street) that plans for Chris Douglass to open Third Rail in the former trolley substation in Roslindale Square have fallen through, and that Roslindale Village Main Street, Historic Boston Inc., and Peregrine Group, LLC, are now looking for a new tenant to move into the space. According to UH, Douglass, who is behind Ashmont Grill and Tavolo in Dorchester, has had to deal with a delay in having a new power cable brought into the space along with other issues that were connected to the "historical nature" of the old substation building, which was built in 1911.

A location of Craft Beer Cellar can currently be found in the former substation, and 43 new housing units have been built around the structure as well. (Plans for a restaurant to open in the substation were first mentioned nearly five years ago.)

Maca Macaronerie to Open at Bow Market in Somerville's Union Square

A food vendor featuring a popular French confection is on the way to an upcoming development in Somerville.

Eater Boston is reporting (via Scout Somerville) that Maca macaronerie will be coming to Bow Market in Union Square, with owner Tamy Chung planning to offer a variety of flavors, colors, and characters (including animal shapes) at the stall. It appears that the macarons will continue to be made out of Creative Chef Kitchens in Derry, NH--at least for now--and Chung will also continue to take custom orders for such events as birthday parties, baby showers, and weddings.

Bow Market, which will be located between Somerville Avenue and Bow Street, plans to have more than 30 stalls as well as a brewery and a comedy club.

The website for Maca can be found at https://macaboston.com/
