Given the stunning accuracy of my previous report on the Parish Café coming to the ex-Rustic Kitchen/Cottonwood space in the Sears Building in Porter Square, you can take this for what it's worth. The new "word on the street" is that The Tavern in the Square is planning on opening a second branch in that space; they've applied for a transfer of the liquor license from Rustic. Anyone know anything about their current operation in Central Square. The website (http://www.thetavernandwish.com/) is less than encouraging. How do they compare with the Cambridge Common right down the road?
Update to add that it looks like these are the same people (or at least related) to the ones who run the Joshua Tree in Davis. Too bad.
