Formaggio Kitchen Is Opening a New Location in Cambridge's Kendall Square

by Marc Hurwitz

A popular gourmet food shop with two locations in the Boston area is going to be opening a third, as it also gets ready for a special anniversary.

According to an article in Cambridge Day, Formaggio Kitchen is planning to open a new outlet on the edge of Cambridge's Kendall Square (next to Lord Hobo), with the Hampshire Street spot having approximately 2,500 square feet of space, a small retail section, and a large kitchen. Once it opens, the new location of Formaggio will join others in Cambridge's Huron Village and Boston's South End, along with a small branch on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

If all goes well, Formaggio's will open in September, possibly in time for the 40th anniversary celebration at the original Huron Avenue location on September 23.

The address for this upcoming specialty food shop is: Formaggio Kitchen, 94 Hampshire Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. The website for all locations can be found at
