A couple of years ago, an award-winning Cambridge restaurant shut down and plans for a new spot to open in the space were mentioned at the time. Now we have learned a bit more about what will be moving in.
Eater Boston is reporting that Cafe du Pays is planning to open in the former Hungry Mother space on Cardinal Medeiros Avenue, with an Instagram page for the spot describing it as a "French-Canadian Kitchen." Very little information on the restaurant has been given as of yet, but as EB mentions, French-Canadian fare typically includes such items as pea soup, poutine, and meat pies. (As soon as we find out more about Cafe du Pays, we will post an update here.)
Hungry Mother shut down in July of 2015, with owner Barry Maiden leaving the restaurant to pursue other projects while his team continued on with State Park, Mamaleh's, and The Bar by the Elevator, all of which are in Kendall Square (and the last of which opened this week).
The address for the upcoming Cafe du Pays is 233 Cardinal Medeiros Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02141.
