Darwin's to Open a New Location in Royal Bengal Space in Cambridge
It looks like the folks behind a pair of sandwich places in Cambridge are opening a third, with this one being just east of Central Square near MIT.
A hearing notice within the City of Cambridge website mentions that Darwin's Ltd. is planning to open on Mass. Ave., with the address being the same as that of Royal Bengal. The note says that the new restaurant would have seating for 19 and would be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, and that no alcohol would be served. Based on the other two Darwin's locations (Mt. Auburn Street in Harvard Square and Cambridge Street west of Inman Square), the outlet on Mass. Ave. would likely have an array of hot and cold sandwiches as well as tea and coffee.
The hearing will take place on Tuesday, August 6, with the city considering Darwin's request for a common victualer license.
