Hungry Mother closed in July, but the team, minus Barry Maiden, promised to open a new concept in the same space. That's still in the works, and they don't have anything concrete to announce about it at this point, but they're aiming for a spring opening. (They're also behind State Park nearby.)
Meanwhile, they have a brand new project in the works — Mamaleh's Delicatessen, a classic Jewish deli that will include a market (think frozen blintzes) and gift shop. It'll open this spring, if all goes as planned, at One Kendall Square, the building that houses State Park. They'll appear before the licensing commission on December 15 to request a full liquor license and proposed operating hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, with 114 seats inside and a seasonal patio.
According to co-owner Rachel Miller Munzer, Mamaleh's menu will include classics like pastrami, corned beef, lox, pickles, whitefish salad, knishes, matzoh ball soup, and more, and there'll be a soda fountain. As much will be made in-house as possible.
Miller Munzer, Alon Munzer, Tyler Sundet, Rachel Sundet, John Kessen, Evan Harrison, and Heather Mojer are partners in Mamaleh's, State Park, and the new restaurant that will open in the Hungry Mother space. The Sundets will be overseeing the Mamaleh's kitchen.
UPDATE: Mamaleh's will open in the space currently occupied by West Bridge, which is closing at the end of the month after three-and-a-half years.
