Brunello Bistro in Somerville to Become Brunello Brazilian Steakhouse and Buffet
A cafe-style eatery in Somerville that morphed into more of an upscale European-style dining spot a couple of years ago is changing its concept once again, this time becoming a Brazilian steakhouse and buffet place.
According to their website, Brunello Bistro on Broadway in the Winter Hill section of the city is soon going to be replaced by Brunello Brazilian Steakhouse and Buffet, though no specific opening date has been given. A poster on the Chowhound site mentions that the dining spot is currently closed for renovations, with a note out front telling customers to "check back in a few weeks."
[May 21 update: Eater Boston is reporting that Brunello Brazilian Steakhouse and Buffet plans to open on Friday, June 1.]
Brunello Bistro first opened in the spring of 2010, having changed over from Bread and Company, which was a cafe operated by the same folks. It appears that based on the name, the same people will also apparently be behind the upcoming Brunello Brazilian Steakhouse and Buffet.
The address for this soon-to-open restaurant in Somerville's Winter Hill neighborhood is: Brunello Brazilian Steakhouse and Buffet, 349 Broadway, Somerville, MA 02145. The website for the now-closed Brunello Bistro is at: http://www.brunellobistro.com/
