Southern Kin Cookhouse and Bar Is Opening at Assembly Row in Somerville
It looks like a local restaurant group is going to be opening a new dining spot, and it will be coming to a mixed-use development just north of Boston.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the City of Somerville website) that Boston Nightlife Ventures plans to open Southern Kin Cookhouse and Bar at Assembly Row, with the restaurant having seating for at least 100 and the name (and its Facebook page) suggesting that it could be focusing on some type of Southern-style fare. If all goes as planned, expect to see this new spot opening sometime in the fall or winter.
[September 1 update: A new article from Eater Boston mentions that Southern Kin Cookhouse and Bar will feature such food items as blackened gator tacos and country-fried steak and it will also have more than 100 American whiskeys along with a wide variety of cocktails.]
[April 29, 2016 update: Eater Boston states that Southern Kin opens on Friday, June 3.]
Boston Nightlife Ventures is also behind such places as Griddler's, The Tap Trailhouse, Wink & Nod, and an upcoming spot called Certified Meatball Company.
The address for the upcoming Southern Kin Cookhouse and Bar is 500 Assembly Row, Somerville, MA, 02145.
