Late last month, Stuff alerted us to the opening of GEM, the latest eatery/lounge hybrid from Big Night Entertainment Group, the group behind high-end party palaces like Shrine at the MGM in Foxwoods, The Estate downtown, and most recently Red Lantern in Back Bay.

In the latest issue of The Improper, a few more details emerged: the space, located in the former Kennedy’s Midtown on Province Street, will seat a mere 35 diners (small by BNEG standards) and sport a 1940s European vibe complete with textures like dark leather and mohair (fuzzy walls, again?).

I recently got a hold of a copy of the opening menu, which you can check out ahead. There’s plenty of on-trend dishes like a salumi board, grilled thin-crust pizza, and tater tots with Russian dressing. You’ll also find silly touches like spelled out prices and side dishes recast as “Little Sharables.”

We have to admit, though, that the Asian-inspired food at Red Lantern far exceeded our expectations, so GEM could be a pleasant surprise as well. Per The Improper, GEM aims to open early next month.
