CLC Cafe Opens in Belmont

CLC cafe 929

An award-winning caterer has opened a new restaurant in the western suburbs of Boston, and it will take over the space where an upscale dining spot had been.

According to an article in the Belmont Citizen-Herald, Rob Pelletier has soft-opened CLC Cafe in Belmont's Cushing Square, with the eatery moving into the former Kitchen on Common space on Common Street. The post says that Pelletier's roommate Michael Gattis will be overseeing the cafe itself (which has a seasonal patio in addition to indoor seating) while Pelletier will continue to manage CLC Catered Events, which was established more than 25 years ago and mentions on its website that Pelletier is a "multiple award-winning caterer." It looks like CLC Cafe will offer an eclectic and always-changing mix of menu items, including takeout options for people on the go. While soft-opened for now, expect a grand opening for the place sometime this fall.

Kitchen on Common closed approximately a year ago after being in business for just under 10 years; the restaurant was a casual, family-friendly spot that featured mostly New American fare.

The address for this new restaurant in Belmont is: CLC Cafe, 442 Common St, Belmont, MA, 02478. The website for CLC Catered Events can be found at while the Facebook page for the cafe is at
