Quiet rumors have long been swirling regarding a possible new Area Four outpost in Somerville, potentially in the space of the short-lived Bearded Pig near Union Square, but this wishful thinking got temporarily drowned out by the very real launch of Area Four's food truck. Now that the truck is safely peddling piadini and breakfast sammies all around town, it's time to get excited once again about this expansion, which is starting to look a bit more real. A Chowhound poster reports seeing work orders signed by Michael Leviton/Area Four Partners in, yes, the old Bearded Pig space at 445 Somerville Ave. The poster adds that some work is going on inside. Another poster replies: "I believe this outpost was just going to be a smaller pizza/cafe type place, more akin to their cafe section." Due to the size constraints of the space, this seems likely. Got any more details on Somerville's potential new cafe and/or restaurant? Hit up the tipline!
Update: It's happening and here's the location.
