Puritan and Company in Cambridge's Inman Square Plans to Expand, Add Retail Space
A Cambridge restaurant that features modern takes on traditional New England fare is making plans to expand its space.
According to an article in the Cambridge Chronicle and TAB, Puritan & Company in the city's Inman Square neighborhood is looking to use its adjacent storage space to enlarge the spot, with the 2,000-square-foot space being used for a 25-seat private dining area along with retail space. In the article/interview, owner Will Gilson says that he hopes to have the private section in place by the end of November and the retail area being ready possibly by next spring, though Gilson is not yet sure what kind of retail space it will be. (He hopes to get feedback on what to do with the space from the surrounding neighborhood along with others who work at the restaurant.)
Puritan & Company first opened in the fall of 2012, with Gilson previously working as a chef at the now-closed Cambridge gastropub Garden at the Cellar and also being involved with a series of pop-up restaurants in the Boston area and elsewhere. In addition to the upcoming expansion of Puritan & Company, Gilson has another project in the works as well, as he is getting ready to open a a takeout place called Beatnik Beverage Company in Kendall Square.
The address for Puritan & Company is 1164 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. Its website can be found at http://www.puritancambridge.com/
