Clover Food Lab Is Opening a Brick-and-Mortar Restaurant in Cambridge's Kendall Square
The folks behind several vegetarian food trucks and two brick-and-mortar restaurants are continuing to look into opening permanent dining spots, as a new one is currently in the works for Cambridge's Kendall Square.
A poster on the Chowhound site has confirmed what Zagat mentioned back in April, that Clover Food Lab is going to be opening at Cambridge Center (by the Main Street/Ames Street intersection), with the earlier Zagat article saying that it could be open by late summer or early fall. (Ed note: It looks like it will be at 5 Cambridge Center, not 10 Cambridge Center as Zagat had said.) This will likely be the fifth brick-and-mortar restaurant for Clover, as locations in Brookline and Burlington will soon be joining two others in Cambridge (Harvard Square and Inman Square). Clover also has trucks that can be found in various parts of Boston and Cambridge.
[October 1 update: According to a License Commission General Hearing page on the City of Cambridge website, the new Clover restaurant will indeed be at 5 Cambridge Center, and it is looking to be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily with alcohol offered (depending on whether they can get a malt beverages license). The dining spot plans to have room for 62 inside and another 24 outside.]
[December 9 update: Cambridge Day states that the new Clover in Kendall Square is opening this Thursday (November 12) from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM and will feature a "pay what you want" offer that day, with all proceeds going to hunger relief organization Lovin' Spoonfuls. (The restaurant starts opening regular hours--7:00 AM to 11:00 PM--on Saturday.)]
The address for this new dining spot in Kendall Square is: Clover Food Lab, 5 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, MA, 02142. The website for Clover is at http://www.cloverfoodlab.com/
