    Harvard Square Losing Longtime Pub

    This week's Restaurant Roundup includes a goodbye to a Cambridge destination, a new pizza joint and another upscale restaurant. (Published Tuesday, May 21, 2019)

    A brand new gastropub opens today in Somerville, moving into the space where a longtime favorite for Italian food had been.

    According to an article from Boston Magazine, Avenue Kitchen and Bar soft-opens in the former Pescatore space today in Ball Square and begins to take reservations tomorrow, with the Boston Avenue restaurant and bar offering Detroit-style pizza (a thick-crust pan pizza that is only found in a few spots around the Greater Boston area), duck wings, lamb spare ribs, salmon poke, fried chicken sandwiches, burgers, steamed mussels, Delmonico steak, cauliflower fajitas, and a variety of grain bowls along with craft beer, wine, cocktails, and Fernet on tap. The space includes a dining area, a small bar, and a back patio--and as was the case with Pescatore, a separate area is set up specifically for takeout. Avenue Kitchen and Bar will initially be open for dinner only, with brunch and lunch service coming later.

    Pescatore closed down in January after being in business for approximately 13 years; it was known in part for its Italian seafood dishes and its pasta.

    The address for Avenue Kitchen and Bar in Ball Square is 158 Boston Avenue, Somerville, MA, 02144. Its website can be found at https://www.avenuesomerville.com/
