Leo's Place Diner, a decades-old Harvard Square restaurant, closed recently, and a restaurant called The Noodle Project was slated to take its place. Now, two things are happening: Leo's Place is reopening out in Waltham, and The Noodle Project's concept has changed into a new diner called Brake Fast.
The new Leo's Place Diner is headed for the former In a Pickle space at 655 Main Street in Waltham, reports Boston Restaurant Talk.
The project now known as Brake Fast should open in the Harvard Square space in late June, according to Cambridge Day. It'll be offering breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; proposed hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday. "I call this kind of an ode to Leo's," said Brake Fast's attorney at a licensing hearing, explaining the decision to abandon the noodle concept. (There are a lot of noodle-focused competitors in the vicinity but not so much breakfast.)
