Nosh, Almost There.

Nosh, the new “Kitchen Bar” opening in the space at 551 Congress Street formerly occupied by The White Heart, looks like it’s just about ready to open (anybody out there have a firm date? Perhaps this weekend? word is a soft “friends and family” opening now – or rather already tonight – with a full opening this weekend or Monday at the latest, depending on who you ask). Their menu looks interesting, with a wide range of moderately priced burgers and snacks (including a whole “noshing” menu of small items to be combined into platters), creative fries (bacon dusted?!), and a slew of sandwiches on the higher end ($8-$10). The menu lists the hours 11am-1am, so it sounds like this will be the new go-to late night food option (though in that crucial 1am-2am hour, Otto will still be the only game in the Arts District – which reminds me, how exciting it is that Otto is expanding into the space next door? Word is they’ll have a bar of some sort in there..). Though a lot of people certainly miss the White Heart in its heyday, Nosh definitely looks to be aiming pretty high, and I’m curious to see how it does.
