Cloud & Spirits Is Opening in the Former Cuchi Cuchi Space in Cambridge

A brand new dining spot is coming to Cambridge, opening in the space where a quirky restaurant and lounge had been until closing last year.

Eater Boston is reporting that Cloud & Spirits is planning to open on Main Street between Kendall and Central squares in the former Cuchi Cuchi space, with the website for the upcoming restaurant indicating that it will focus on New American fare with Korean influences. Eater and the website mention that Katie Cheung (Kamakura, Hojoko, Menton, Oishii, Radius) and Michael Gander (The Healthy Tap) are the co-owners, with Cheung being the Executive Chef and Gander being the lead mixologist, and that the menu will include such items as steak tartare, American wagyu ribeye, spicy roe pasta, honey sesame chicken, scorched rice soup, and house churned ice cream. Currently, Cheung is running a pop-up ghost kitchen called Mikkusu out of the Cloud & Spirits kitchen, with that spot featuring Japanese sandwiches.

Cuchi Cuchi had been in business for nearly 20 years until closing down in the early months of the pandemic; the place was known for its globally-inspired fare and classic cocktails

The address for Cloud & Spirits is 795 Main Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. Its website can be found at

[June 23 update: Eater Boston states that Cloud & Spirits is now open, though initially just for dinner Friday through Sunday, with brunch on the way at some point soon (an outdoor patio is being planned as well).]
