Row 34 Cambridge, Now Open

Michael Harlan Turkell for Row 34

Cantabrigians, rejoice and say thanks to the oyster gods because Row 34 is now officially up-and-running in Kendall Square. The fourth location of the acclaimed oyster bar from co-owners chef Jeremy Sewall and Shore Gregory opened Friday, April 7th at 5:00pm with all the seafood faves you’ve come to know from their locations in Fort Point, Burlington and Portsmouth, New Hampshire — plus there’ll be some all new additions to make the new locale all its own.

Make a reservation here and get down to 314 Main Street; there’s plenty of seating in the sleek, 7,000-square-foot loft-like space that includes a 105-seat dining room, a 20-seat bar, and a 40-seat seasonal patio. The rooms are decorated with black and white ocean photographs from Cape Cod with an overlay of ocean-inspired patterns connecting to New England’s fishing community, plus there’s a custom mural by Dominican-American artist Silvia Lopez Chavez set off by half-dome warehouse lights that mimic oyster cages and a 32 by 15-foot light installation of galvanized steel oyster sorters.

In addition to the all-important raw bar, shellfish towers and fan-favorite lobster rolls, the menu is a great mix of new and classic Row flavors including Tuna Crudo with black garlic aioli, avocado and crispy shallots; Razor Clam Ceviche with cucumber, Aleppo pepper, Meyer lemon, mint; Housemade Rigatoni with littleneck clams, smoked oyster butter, English peas; and Grilled Whole Black Sea Bass with Sparrow Arc potatoes, asparagus, salsa verde. Row fans know that craft beer is a big part of the experience, and you won’t be disappointed with beer director Suzy Hays‘ selection of regional pours and hard-to-find bottles, plus spirits director Brian Callahan (Big Heart Hospitality, Coquette) has a fresh, fun lineup of modern cocktails to get the oyster party started.

Row 34 Cambridge will be open for lunch and dinner daily, seven days a week. Follow them on IG and FB for updates, and give the Kendall Square location a call if you have any Qs at 617.819.1120.
