    I saw that sign just this morning on our way to work. Right next to the new Asian Art/Sculpture place. I weclome anything on that stretch of Mass Ave that will bring foot traffic, not just cars zooming by on their way to Arlington/Fresh Pond. How does it compare to Dave's?

      Their email list says the new location will open its doors April 21st; it's a second location, so the Union Sq. outpost lives on. The hours of the N. Cambridge one are a little more hospitable to the working masses:

      2285 Massachusetts Ave.
      Open M-F 9am-7pm, Sa 9am-5pm, Su noon-5pm

      Not too far away from the original Capones either. Strange...

        Are they moving there or is it another branch of the store? (And not too far away from Dave's Fresh Pasta for a little bit of Davis Square competition!)

          Capones specialty foods and pasta:


          Their new store is going in at the corner of Mass Ave and Meacham Road, roughly across the street from the Modern Brewer store.

            Do you know what used to be in the place that they are coming to in Cambridge? Had it been another restaurant?
