Chick Chick Boom Is Opening in Cambridgeport

A new dining spot is on its way to Cambridge, and it looks like the person behind a nearby restaurant is behind this place as well.

According to a license commission agenda page within the city's website, Chick Chick Boom is planning to open in Cambridgeport, with the address indicating that it will be moving into the Frozen Yogi space on River Street just outside of Central Square. The license application notice mentions that Jamme Chantler is the proposed manager of the 18-seat eatery, which is apparently the same Jamme Chantler who operates Thelonious Monkfish, an Asian restaurant on Mass. Ave. in Central Square. Little else is known about the proposed dining spot, so stay tuned for more details.

The address for this new restaurant in Cambridgeport is: Chick Chick Boom, 80 River Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139.

September 20 update: Eater Boston mentions that Jamme Chantler of Thelonious Monkfish is indeed behind Chick Chick Boom (along with chef Ginger Phomjun) and that the dining spot will focus on chicken, with influences coming from Southeast Asia, Japan, and the United States. A few items expected to be offered include chicken wings, fried rice, and a steamed chicken dish with coconut jasmine rice.]
