A new restaurant called East End Grille is coming to Broadway in Somerville says the Somerville Patch. Yesterday, notes from a licensing commission meeting brought news of a restaurant called Broadway BBQ: the two establishment are one and the same. The Patch says East End Grille will be run by a manager from Orleans with Roberto Coreia serving as chef. Roughly half of the menu will be devoted to vegetarian dishes and the overall concept is "'classic American, with a little touch of Southern cuisine.'" The team is hoping to open by early fall, depending in part on how long it takes to completely overhaul the space that was formerly the bar Khoury's State Spa.
