The Vietnamese food truck and restaurant group Bon Me will open up another brick-and-mortar store, this one in the Fresh Pond neighborhood of Cambridge. In addition to a handful of food trucks, Bon Me has existing permanent outposts in Kendall Square and Fort Point.
Owner Patrick Lynch's request for a new common victualler's license was approved by the Cambridge License Commission during a general hearing last night, an employee of the city confirmed over the phone today. The new Bon Me will be located at 201 Alewife Brook Parkway, the longtime site of Cheddar's Pizzeria, which closed earlier this year.
No word on when the Fresh Pond Bon Me could open, but when it does, it will have seating for 22 and will operate daily from 7 a.m. - midnight. (UPDATE: While the hours of 7 a.m. - midnight were approved by the board, actual operating hours will be less than that.)
