The industrial feel of Technology Square in Cambridge is one that suggests busy schedules, long business meetings and other facets of the many different companies who have set up shop in this area. It's definately a place where a good espresso and something tasty would go a long way. Lucky for those who live or work in the neighborhood, Area IV, a coffee-house/soon to be full-menu restaurant opened shop yesterday (May 16th).
A friend and I went down to check it out. The place is so spanking new that it doesn't yet have a sign up, we missed it the first go around. A pile of wood indicates where the restaurant is due to open a week from now.
I was also very impressed when I asked my usual question of 'What do you do with your baked goods at the end of the day?'. Their answer was that they had already contacted Lovin Spoonfuls, a boston based mini-team that goes around collecting surplus food from bakeries and restaurants and redistributes it to the homeless...A+!
Once the restaurant part of this project opens up, this little corner of Technology Square will be quite the favorite for a while. The real question is whether the place is good enough to surpasse the usual 'new comer novelty' phase in a couple months time!
