Eastern Standard and Branch Line partner Andrew Holden plans to open an all-day cafe in Kendall Square this summer. Named Shy Bird, the new venture will offer coffee, wine, rotisserie, and more, according to Boston Magazine.

The forthcoming Shy Bird will be located at 390 Third Street, on the corner of Third Street and Broadway. The bare-bones website gives off a casual and quirky vibe with an illustration of a chicken hiding under a lampshade (err, a shy bird?).

According to Boston Restaurant Talk, the upcoming restaurant will have “seating for 89 inside, a total occupancy of 140 inside.” Holden told Boston Magazine that the restaurant will draw from influences in France, Italian, and Spain, with the rotisserie spit being the main componenet of the space — think roast chicken, roast vegetables, roast pork, roast duck, and more.

Keep an eye here for more updates on Shy Bird as they come along.
