West Bridge - Kendall Square

I heard that New Bridge, a french inspired restuaruant fronted by Aquitaine alumn, is opening this week. Anyone have any particulars on menu, price point, bar focus (cocktails, craftbeer), ect ect, ect?

  1. I don't know any details beyond the fact that the restaurant's name is WEST Bridge, not "New Bridge."

    West Bridge, 1 Kendall Sq., Cambridge, 617-945-­0221

    1. First off, it's called West Bridge. You're correct that it's an Aquitane alum. I believe he spent time in New York at some pretty big name spots (I think it was Eleven Madison Park). I took a look in the window, and there seemed to be 8 or so beers on tap. My eyesight is terrible, but I remember seeing a Pretty Things and BBC. Don't recall what else. Also, I believe Grub Street had some sample dishes from the menu last week. I'm sure you can find it online.

      1. Correct name is West Bridge. No particulars on their website,
        Someone on the restaurant's fb wrote that they ate there, liked the duck, egg in a jar, and cucumber cocktail.

          They had a private party on Friday night. I'm guessing that's where the comment came from (sign on the door said it was closed for a private party but would open this week). I'd take any comments from last week with a huge grain of salt since I'm assuming that was an invite only special event.

          1. According to Grub Street the bar will be managed by Eastern Standard alum Josh Taylor, so I would guess that they will feature some fancy cocktails.

            Here is the link to the article which includes the menu:
