Bronwyn in Somerville's Union Square May Be Joined by a Second Location

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a popular Somerville restaurant known in part for its house-made sausages could be expanding.

According to the Tables section of The Boston Globe, Bronwyn in Union Square may soon be joined by a second location, with co-owner Tim Wiechmann saying that it would be coming to an as-of-yet undisclosed location in the coming months. The post also confirms that Wiechmann and his wife Bronwyn (who the restaurant is named after) have indeed closed their Cambridge dining spot Self-Portrait, and that another couple is apparently taking over the Walden Street space and opening a new restaurant there.

Bronwyn first opened in the spring of 2013 on Washington Street in Union Square, offering a variety of handcrafted sausages as well as dishes with Central and Eastern European influences. (The place is also known for its beer garden.) The website for the restaurant can be found at

[January 7, 2019 update: Boston Magazine states that plans for a second location of Bronwyn have fallen through, though they are now looking to open a new pizzeria and cocktail bar called T and B Pizza in Union Square.]
