Back Bay Beats (B3) Is Opening within Berklee's New Building in Boston's Back Bay

A couple of years ago, we reported that a new restaurant may be coming to a new building that is part of the Berklee College of Music in Boston's Back Bay. Now it appears that this is still happening, and more information has just come out about it.

According to a job post within the bostonchefs.com site, B3 is planning to open at Berklee, with the place being a dining and drinking spot that is "inspired by the multicultural diversity of music and the variety of exciting culinary flavors and ingredients found across the world." The post continues, saying that it "will be a fluid space where food is alive with freshness and flavor and music just happens." Earlier, we had mentioned that a proposed restaurant would be moving into the ground floor of Berklee's new 16-floor tower at 160 Massachusetts Avenue and that it could feature live music.

Berklee's new building is located between Belvidere Street and St. Germain Street, just south of where Boylston Street crosses Massachusetts Avenue.
