Update: Kennedy's on the Square Is Opening in Cambridge's Harvard Square

An Irish pub and restaurant southwest of Boston is looking to expand, with a second location on its way to one of the busiest sections of Cambridge.

Eater Boston is reporting that Kennedy's Public House in Norwood is planning to open a new dining and drinking spot in Harvard Square, based on information given on the pub's website. It is not known where the new place will be, nor is there an opening date, so keep checking back for updates.

[February 16, 2014 update: A Twitter post from @BostonGourmand indicates that the new location of Kennedy's (which is going to be named "Kennedy's on the Square") is taking over the space on Dunster Street where First Printer has been.]

[September 29, 2014 update: According to a poster on the Chowhound site--and confirmed by the restaurant's Facebook page--Kennedy's on the Square is now open in Cambridge. The Facebook note mentions that the new place is "a classic American tavern offering gastro-pub inspired cuisine and tantalizing craft cocktails."]

One sidenote from EB is that owner Finbar Griffin is also behind Tommy Doyle's in Newton, which has different ownership from the recently-closed Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square.

The original Kennedy's Public House is located within the the Hampton Inn on Route 1 in Norwood. Its website can be found at
