Real to Open in Former Lincoln Kitchen/AKA Bistro Space in Lincoln

by Marc Hurwitz

A new restaurant is on its way to a Boston suburb that currently has very few dining options, and the people behind it come from a few of the best-known dining spots in the region.

An email sent to us indicates that Real is planning to open in Lincoln, moving into the space by Lincoln Station that had been home to both Lincoln Kitchen and AKA Bistro. The new spot, which will initially be open for dinner only but will eventually add a weekend brunch, will be a casual upscale restaurant featuring comfort food dishes and seasonal items, while a full bar will include 10 beer taps.

Both the email and a posting within the jobs section mention that the husband-and-wife team behind the place are Tom Fosnot and Ruth-Anne Adams, and that they are partnering with Lindsey Parker; Fosnot comes from The Gibbet Hill Grill in Groton and the now-closed Rocca Kitchen and Bar in Boston's South End and Rialto in Cambridge's Harvard Square while Adams comes from the now-closed Casablanca in Harvard Square--and the page also says that they have worked at Clio and Hamersley's Bistro (both of which are closed).

If all goes as planned, Real could be opening sometime in March.

The address for Real is 145 Lincoln Road, Lincoln, MA, 01773. Its website will be at
