Mamaleh's Delicatessen to Open in Cambridge's Kendall Square
The team behind a dining and drinking spot in Cambridge's Kendall Square (as well as a now-closed award-winning restaurant) will be bringing a brand new deli to the neighborhood.
Eater Boston is reporting that Mamaleh's Delicatessen is planning to open at One Kendall Square in the same building as State Park, which is run by the team that will operate the deli and had also been involved with Hungry Mother on Cardinal Medeiros Avenue. (Barry Maiden, who opened up both places, departed in July when Hungry Mother closed.) The article says that the new spot will include a deli, a market, and a gift shop, with seating for 114 inside and more seats on an outdoor patio that will be open during the warmer months. A few items offered at the upcoming eatery include matzoh ball soup, corned beef, pickles, knishes, pastrami, lox, and more, according to EB.
If all goes as planned, Mamaleh's could be opening in the spring of 2016, and Eater Boston says that a new restaurant from the team may be opening in the former Hungry Mother space at around the same time.
[June 27, 2016 update: A job post within the bostonchefs.com site indicates that Mamaleh's--which is described in the post as "the first Modern Jewish Delicatessen in the Boston area"--will open in mid-July.]
[July 11, 2016 update: A new article from Eater Boston indicates that Mamaleh's opens tomorrow (Tuesday, July 11).]
