It looks like a fast-casual spot by the Boston waterfront that features a couple of trendy food items could be expanding to Cambridge.
According to a source, Yoki Express is planning to open in the old Bruegger's Bagels space in Porter Square, with a public hearing notice posted in a window of the Mass. Ave. storefront indicating that the eatery seeks to "continue the operation of a fast order food restaurant" within the space. If approved by the city and it does open, the new Yoki Express may feature poke bowls and sushi burritos, based on the menu at the Seaport District location. (Yoki Express is also connected to Yoki, a Japanese restaurant and bar in Medford.)
Bruegger's Bagels closed its Porter Square location late last summer, shortly after a Kenmore Square location of the chain shut its doors.
The address for the proposed Yoki Express is 1876 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02140.
