The Smoke Shop BBQ Is Apparently Opening at Assembly Row in Somerville

Earlier this month, we reported that a popular BBQ restaurant in Cambridge was getting ready to open at least one new location in the Boston area. Now we have learned where one of them might be.

According to a poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, The Smoke Shop BBQ appears to be on its way to Assembly Row in Somerville, with a page on the Federal Realty Investment Trust website including the dining spot in a list of tenants either currently open or on their way to the development. Earlier information that we had received indicated that a new location of the barbecue spot would be coming to a space in Boston that we are still holding off on naming until it is made official, so it is possible that the Assembly Row outlet could become one of at least three Smoke Shop locations in the Boston area.

Chef and restaurateur Andy Husbands first opened The Smoke Shop in Kendall Square in June of 2016, joining Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel in Boston's South End, which he also operates.
