Playska Is Opening in Cambridge's Inman Square

The people behind a fine-dining restaurant and a tavern with Central and Eastern European influences are going to be opening a third spot, and this one will be a fast-casual eatery.

According to an article in Eater Boston, Tim and Bronwyn Wiechmann of T.W. Food in Cambridge's Huron Village and Bronwyn in Somerville's Union Square are planning to open Playska in the Inman Square section of Cambridge, taking over the space on Hampshire Street where Rosie's Bakery had been until closing this past winter. The new place will focus on sandwiches with house-made bread, condiments, and pickles, with the offerings having Eastern European leanings; options will likely include a pork, lamb, and egg patty, a veggie patty made with chickpeas and beets, and honey challah panini.

If all goes as planned, Playska could be opening sometime in September.

[September 8 update: A License Commission General Hearing page within the City of Cambridge website shows that a meeting will take place this evening that looks at Playska's application for a Common Victualer license, which would allow food and non-alcoholic beverages to be served at the eatery. The post also notes that the spot would have seating for 16 and would be open from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM daily.]

[October 22 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that Playska opens its doors on Thursday, October 29.]

The address for this new fast-casual spot in Inman Square is: Playska, 243 Hampshire Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
