Redbones May Be Thinking of Opening a Restaurant in East Somerville

It looks like a popular BBQ restaurant in the Davis Square section of Somerville could be planning to open another dining spot, with this one possibly being in the East Somerville neighborhood of the city.

According to a neighborhood meeting flyer sent to us by one of our readers (and confirmed by the East Somerville Main Streets Facebook page), Redbones on Chester Street is looking at the space on 118 Broadway where Khoury's State Spa used to be. This is the same space that another new restaurant called La Brasa had been planning to move into, but has since decided to open at 130 Broadway instead. The neighborhood meeting on the potential opening of a restaurant by the Redbones folks will be held on January 30 at 6:00 PM at the 118 Broadway site.

[January 26, 2012 update: According to an update on the Grub Street Boston site, the rep for Redbones states that "the word on expansion is not right now, though occasionally we scout locations." The neighborhood flyer, however, mentions that "the potential tenant [of 118 Broadway] is Redbone's of Davis Square," and that the owner of Redbones "will be present to present his plan." More updates on this are surely on their way, so keep checking back.]

[April 25, 2012 update: Based on an article from the Somerville Patch, Redbones is no longer looking at the 118 Broadway space, as another restaurant will be moving in there instead.]

Redbones has been busy over the past year, opening a rib shack in Cambridge's Kendall Square as well as putting a food truck on the road.
