The Rising Is Opening in Cambridge's Inman Square
It looks like a new gastropub is on its way to one of the busiest parts of Cambridge, and it is possible that it may be moving into the space where an eclectic sports bar had been.
The BostonChefs.com jobs section indicates that The Rising is planning to open in Inman Square, with the listing saying that the spot will be a "new gastropub style restaurant and sports bar." No other information has been given, but it appears this is be the same place mentioned in an earlier article where restaurateur Kevin Treanor had been planning to open a place in the old Hit Wicket space on Cambridge Street. A YouTube video seems to further confirm this, with Treanor saying the new spot opening in that space would be a gastropub.
Treanor is connected to such restaurants and bars as Phoenix Landing in Cambridge's Central Square, Hugh O'Neill's in Malden, O'Neill's in Salem, and The Merchant in downtown Boston.
It looks like the address for The Rising will be 1172 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
