Copacabana in North Cambridge Being Replaced by Curry N Wok

[Ed note: This article was updated on September 23 to reflect a name given to the upcoming restaurant.]

It looks like a Latin American restaurant in North Cambridge is going to make way for an Indian dining spot, though few details are available at this time.

According to a note sent from Rich O's Ravings, Copacabana on Mass. Ave. is shuttered, with a sign out front saying that a place serving authentic Indian cuisine will be coming soon. This comes on the heels of a City of Cambridge License Commission General Hearing page mentioning a few weeks back that the manager of Copacabana applied for a common victualer license to be exercised at the same address, which could imply that the person behind Copacabana could possibly be behind the upcoming Indian restaurant as well, though this is speculation at this point. (As soon as we get more information, we will post an update here.)

[September 23 update: A License Commission General Hearing page on the City of Cambridge website indicates that the new spot will be called Curry N Wok.]

[November 20 update: A poster on Chowhound mentions that Curry N Wok is now open.]

Copacabana first opened in January of 2012, taking over the space where Garden of Eat-In Pizzeria had been, and before that, Good Food Cafe.

The address for the new Curry N Wok is 2378 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02140.
