Update: Rami's in Brookline to Open Cold Press Juice and Salad Bar Next Door
[Ed note: This article was updated on March 12, 2015 to reflect a name change--and apparently a concept change--for the upcoming spot.]
Nearly three years ago, we reported that a glatt kosher restaurant in Brookline was thinking of opening a second spot, and they went so far as to ask diners where a good location in the Boston area for the eatery would be. Now we have learned that they will indeed be opening a second spot--and it will be within shouting distance of the original spot.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the Brookline Beacon) that Rami's on Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner will be opening a kosher, vegetarian restaurant that is literally next door--and it will tentatively be called The Place Next Door. EB says that the dining spot will be moving into the space where a beauty supply shop had been, with the Beacon article saying that the new place will be "a kosher dairy restaurant."
[March 12, 2015 update: A new post from Eater Boston indicates that the upcoming spot from Rami's will apparently be jumping on the juice craze, as it will be a juice and salad bar called Cold Press.]
[May 29, 2015 update: According to a press release sent out this week, Cold Press is planning to open next Wednesday (June 3).]
In late 2011, Rami's had announced that it was looking to open a second spot and created a Facebook poll asking folks where a good location for it might be; at the time, Cambridge seemed to be in the running, with fans also being interested in Sharon.
As mentioned in an article here a few days ago, Rami's may be starting up a food truck as well.
The address for this new spot in Brookline will be 326 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446.
