Update: Area Four in Cambridge Is Apparently Opening a Second Location in Somerville

[Ed note: This article was updated on April 4, 2013 to reflect a possible location for a second Area Four.]

A casual New American restaurant in Cambridge's Kendall Square area that opened about a year and a half ago might be opening a second location.

Grub Street Boston is reporting that the folks behind Area Four on Main Street are eyeing locations for a new outlet of its restaurant. At this point in time, it is not known where in the Boston area they are looking; as soon as we get more information, we will post an update here.

[April 4, 2013 update: Based on a note posted in the window (which we saw last night), it appears that Area Four is planning to open at 445 Somerville Avenue in Somerville, taking over the space just west of Union Square where The Bearded Pig had briefly been last summer. Thanks to a poster on the Chowhound site for initially bringing this to our attention.]

Area Four first opened in June of 2011, bringing to Kendall Square a place to get such items as mussels, macaroni and cheese, braised grass-fed beef, and wood-fired pizza. The restaurant also has a bakery-cafe area as well as a bar.

The address for Area Four is: Area Four, 500 Technology Square (Main Street), Cambridge, MA, 02139. Their website is at
