Kendall Food Court in Cambridge Is Reopening
A food court in Cambridge that shut down a couple of years ago is getting ready to reopen.
According to a Twitter post from @TransitMark, Kendall Food Court is returning sometime this fall, with a Craigslist job post confirming this, simply saying "New Food Court Opening in Kendall Square!" The sign shown in the Twitter post indicates that Einstein Bros Bagels, Bytes at the Coop, and Panda Express will be opening there, though it is not known if other eateries will be joining them at this point in time.
[October 26 update: Cambridge Day states that Kendall Food Court hopes to reopen November 9, and that it will have a total of three dining spots (the ones mentioned above).]
[November 9 update: The MIT Coop Bookstore tells us that the food court is not opening today after all, but final touches and employee training are in the works for this week, so it should be opening very soon.]
[December 9 update: According to several social media posts (including a tweet from @kendallcntr), Kendall Food Court is now open.]
Kendall Food Court--which is also known as Cambridge Center Food Court and MIT Coop Food Court--shut down in 2013, with a renovation of the space and a reopening promised since its closure. The old food court included Au Bon Pain, Beijing Tokyo, Damon's, Sbarro, and Teriyaki Cafe.
The food court is located at 3 Cambridge Center, which is next to the Marriott along Main Street in Kendall Square.
