Bon Me Is Opening in Former Cheddar's Space in Cambridge's Fresh Pond/Alewife Area
Last month we mentioned that a popular pizza place and sandwich shop in Cambridge was closing; now we have learned that the people behind a group of Vietnamese food trucks and brick-and-mortar restaurants are going to be expanding into that space.
Eater Boston is reporting (via a License Commission General Hearing page within the City of Cambridge website) that Bon Me is opening on Alewife Brook Parkway in the Fresh Pond/Alewife section of the city, taking over the space where Cheddar's had been since the late 1980s. Once it opens, the Vietnamese eatery will join other permanent locations in Cambridge's Kendall Square and the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston, along with food trucks that can be found in various locations around the Boston area.
[August 17 update: According to the Tables section of The Boston Globe, the new Bon Me on Alewife Brook Parkway opens September 9.]
[September 7 update: According to several sources (including the restaurant's website), the new Bon Me at Fresh Pond opened today.]
[September 9 update: A press release indicates that Bon Me officially opens its Fresh Pond location today.]
Expect to see such items as Vietnamese sandwiches, noodle salads, and rice bowls at the new Bon Me in Cambridge, depending on whether the menu is similar to that of the existing restaurants and food trucks.
The address for this upcoming restaurant in Cambridge is: Bon Me, 201 Alewife Brook Parkway, Cambridge, MA, 02138. Their website can be found at http://www.bonmetruck.com/
