The Blue Room in Cambridge's Kendall Square Reopens After Fire; Belly Wine Bar Reopens Next Week
A pair of dining and drinking spots in Cambridge that closed last year because of a fire are back, with one reopening this week and the other returning next week.
A message sent to us this morning indicates that The Blue Room soft-opened last night and will open for real tonight, while Belly Wine Bar hopes to open back up next Wednesday if all goes as planned. Both spots were hit by a two-alarm fire in Kendall Square in August of 2015, with the blaze also forcing Flat Top Johnny's and Beantowne Coffee House to shut down. (The former reopened in April of this year while the latter reopened last month.)
The Blue Room is an eclectic restaurant that focuses in part on New American fare and comfort food, while Belly Wine Bar features small plates and a variety of traditional and progressive wines. Both spots are located at 1 Kendall Square.
[September 9 update: An Instagram post indicates that Belly Wine Bar reopens this evening.]
