West Bridge in Cambridge's Kendall Square is Closing
An upscale French-New England fusion restaurant in Cambridge is getting ready to close its doors.
Eater Boston is reporting that West Bridge in the city's Kendall Square neighborhood is shutting down at the end of the month, with co-owners Alexis Gelburd-Kimler and Matthew Gaudet saying in a statement, "Our team is so proud of what we've accomplished in the last three years of West Bridge, however we have decided to close our doors at the end of December to pursue new opportunities... We are profoundly grateful to our employees, friends, family, investors, mentors, loyal customers and neighbors to have had this opportunity, and could not have done it without all of your support." According to EB, the dining spot will be replaced by Mamaleh's Delicatessen, which will be run by the team behind State Park and the now-closed Hungry Mother (minus Barry Maiden); that restaurant--as reported earlier--should be opening sometime in the spring of 2016.
West Bridge first opened in May of 2012, featuring such dishes as pig heads, venison, lamb shoulder, fluke, ribs, and more, along with an array of beers, wines and cocktails. The eatery was named as one of the 12 most outstanding restaurants of 2013 by GQ, and Gaudet was picked as one of the best new chefs of 2013 by Food & Wine magazine. (West Bridge was also nominated for best new restaurant in America for 2013 by Bon Appetit.)
The address for West Bridge is One Kendall Square (Building 300), Cambridge MA, 02139.
