86: Rustic Kitchen Cambridge
I am on a roll today!
I think they lasted two years in that cursed spot.
There is a new Rustic Kitchen opening in Park Sq... so maybe they just wanted to condense locations.
It's too bad. In its brief heyday, Rustic was the best (only?) place for oysters in Porter Sq.
Interesting goings on inside the Porter Exchange mall too.
The Japanese bakery stand has moved around the corner to outside Blue Fin, and in its place are two mysterious small construction spaces, with floor-to-ceiling coverings. Possibly more restaurant space, possibly related to the art institute.
I'll be curious to see where the literal and proverbial dust settles...

Cottonwood there is the place that had the jumbo shrimp stuffed variation on chilies rellenos, right? I've fond memories of that appetizer, although can't recall anything else they had. Wierd how some spots, even though they should be good ones, just seem to be cursed and can't keep a place for long.
