Update: Wholesome Fresh to Open in the Harvard Square Section of Cambridge

[Ed note: This article was updated on November 9 to reflect new information given, including a different name for the place.]

It looks like a new dining spot is on its way to Cambridge's Harvard Square, and it could be open 24/7.

According to a license commission agenda page within the city's website, a spot tentatively called Hello Fresh is looking to open on Church Street, with the place having seating for 20 and being open 24 hours per day. Very little information on the eatery has been given--and it is not known if there is any connection to the HelloFresh meal kit delivery service--so as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here. [October 18 update: An email from the HelloFresh meal kit delivery service indicates that the proposed Hello Fresh in Harvard Square has no connection to the brand.]

Currently, there are very few 24-hour dining/food options in the Boston area; some spots that are open all night long include South Street Diner in Boston's Leather District, Bova's Bakery in the North End, Clover in Cambridge's Central Square, and Victoria's Diner in Roxbury, though they are only open 24 hours Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Based on the address, it appears that this place may move into the Market In the Square Space, a store that also happens to be a 24/7 spot.

The address for this proposed spot in Harvard Square is 60 Church Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.

[November 9 update: Cambridge Day mentions that the name of the place will actually be Wholesome Fresh, and that it will indeed take over the Market In the Square space, as Market In the Square was recently seized by the sheriff's department for nonpayment of rent.]
