Team Behind Island Creek Oyster Bar, Row 34 to Open New Restaurant in Cambridge's Harvard Square
A new restaurant is on its way to one of the busiest parts of Cambridge, and the people behind a couple of dining spots in Boston will be opening the place.
The Boston Globe is reporting that Skip Bennett, Shore Gregory, Garrett Harker, and Jeremy Sewall of Island Creek Oyster Bar in Kenmore Square and Row 34 in Fort Point plan to open an as-of-yet unnamed restaurant in Harvard Square, with the eatery being located in the historic Conductor's Building by Mt. Auburn Street, Eliot Street, and Bennett Street (just north of the Charles Hotel and the John F. Kennedy School of Government). At this point in time, very little is known about the dining spot other than the possibility that it could open later in 2016, so keep checking back for updates.
In early 2013, we mentioned that a place called Conductor's Restaurant had been hoping to move into the Conductor's Building, but those plans apparently fell through; it had been looking to take over the space where Hoffa's Swiss Alps Restaurant had once been. The Conductor's Building dates back to 1912, according to an earlier article in the Harvard Crimson.
In addition to Island Creek Oyster Bar and Row 34, the people behind the upcoming Cambridge restaurant will also be opening another location of Island Creek Oyster Bar in Burlington, while Garrett Harker is also involved with Eastern Standard and The Hawthorne in Kenmore Square and Branch Line in Watertown.
