East End Grille Is Opening in East Somerville
It is no secret that 118 Broadway in East Somerville has been a space of interest of late for possible restaurants opening, and now it looks like things are finally starting to come together for a dining spot definitely opening there.
Confirming information in an email that we received several days ago, the Somerville Patch is reporting that the East End Grille is coming to 118 Broadway, which had been the home of Khoury's State Spa--and which the person behind La Brasa (which will be opening at 130 Broadway instead) and the folks behind Redbones in Davis Square (a proposal that apparently fell through) had looked at over recent times. The article mentions that one of the people behind the new eatery is a manager at Orleans restaurant in Davis Square, while the chef comes from the Ames Hotel in downtown Boston. The cuisine will mostly be traditional American fare with Southern influences, with a good number of vegetarian dishes available.
The Patch says that a complete renovation of the building is planned, with a possible opening sometime in the late summer or early fall.
