Cubist Circle to Open in Former Gourmet Oriental Space in Weymouth

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a new Asian restaurant is opening on the South Shore, replacing a dining spot that was known in part for its Chinese-American food and karaoke.

According to a source, Cubist Circle is opening in Weymouth, with the restaurant moving into the former Gourmet Oriental space on Washington Street. An earlier meeting minutes page within the website for Weymouth confirms this, indicating that Cubist Circle will be an Asian fusion spot whose manager (Zhongyuan Zang) comes from Fuji Steakhouse in Needham along with other dining spots. It appears that the new eatery could have seating for more than 350, with the place including a first-floor dining room, a first-floor lounge, and two function rooms, with one in the basement.

Gourmet Oriental shuttered toward the latter part of 2017.

The address for the upcoming Cubist Circle is 625 Washington Street, Weymouth, MA, 02188.
