Neighborhoods Coffee and Crepes Is Opening in the Fenway's Restaurant Row

It looks like another new restaurant is coming to the Fenway's "Restaurant Row," which is continuing to make a comeback after the devastating fire that destroyed it a few years back.

Eater Boston is reporting (via @Grosssman on Twitter) that Neighborhoods Coffee & Crepes is looking to open on Peterborough Street, whose strip of dining spots is on the rebound after it mostly burned down in January of 2009. Not much is known about the new eatery, other than the fact that, based on the name, it will be some kind of cafe/crepe shop.

[September 14 update: Eater Boston has posted more information on Neighborhoods Coffee & Crepes, stating that it will offer coffee and espresso drinks along with crepes, muffins, and "elegant desserts," with locally-sourced ingredients used for some of its items. The place will be open from early in the morning to late in the evening Monday through Saturday, with a slightly earlier closing on Sundays. Eater also mentions that Neighborhoods Coffee & Crepes could be open by the end of October.]

[November 1 update: A new article from Eater Boston indicates that Neighborhoods Coffee & Crepes is planning to open on Thursday, November 15.]

[November 27 update: East Boston mentions that Neighborhoods Coffee & Crepes has soft-opened, with a grand opening (and a full menu) likely on the way soon.]

Restaurants that have opened up on Peterborough Street's Restaurant Row after the fire include El Pelon Taqueria, Rod Dee, Swish Shabu, and Thornton's (El Pelon Taqueria, Rod Dee, and Thornton's had been in the block before the fire hit).
