It looks like a new restaurant is opening just over the bridge from Boston, and a well-known chef and restaurateur is apparently involved with the place.
According to a Facebook post from Susan Holaday of Foodservice East, Jose Duarte of Taranta in Boston's North End is planning to open a dining spot in Chelsea, with an earlier meeting minutes page seeming to confirm this, saying that Duarte and Taylor Choquet (who is also from Taranta) being behind the place, which would be on Adams Street and whose parent company is called Oakwood Tavern, LLC. The minutes page had mentioned that the restaurant would be a Peruvian and Italian fusion spot with a capacity around or just under 20, though it is not known if this remains the case for both the concept and capacity. Duarte posts on Susan Holaday's page that details will be coming soon, so stay tuned for updates.
Taranta, which is located on Hanover Street, also offers Peruvian-Italian fusion fare.
The address for the planned restaurant in Chelsea from Jose Duarte and Taylor Choquet is 22 Adams Street, Chelsea, MA, 02150.
