Tim and Bronwyn Wiechmann to Open Turenne in Former Real/Lincoln Kitchen/AKA Bistro Space in Lincoln

The husband-and-wife team behind two popular dining spots in Somerville are now looking to open a new restaurant in a western suburb with very few dining options.

According to the Tables section of The Boston Globe, Tim and Bronwyn Wiechmann (Bronwyn, T&B Pizza) are planning to open Turenne in Lincoln, taking over the space on Lincoln Road that had been home to Real and before that, Lincoln Kitchen and AKA Bistro. The post says that the new spot will be an offshoot of a takeout/delivery-only popup restaurant/bakery by the same name in Somerville's Union Square that resides within the T&B Pizza space (T&B is currently hibernating), and that the Lincoln eatery will include a wine shop, provisions, and live music while possibly offering such options as Montreal-style bagels, pastries, breads, charcuterie, pizza, smoothies, coffee, tea, and more depending on how similar the menu will be to that of the Somerville location.

The website for Turenne describes the Lincoln location as a second home for Turenne that will be "a country manor and garden," while the Globe post says that it hopes to soft-open on April 1.

The address for the upcoming location of Turenne in Lincoln is 145 Lincoln Road, Lincoln, MA, 01773. The website for the Somerville location is at
