Preview the Dishes at West Bridge, Opening to the Public Tomorrow

The restaurant, from two Aquitaine alums, will be offering a mix of small plates and large-format dishes at One Kendall Square.

Calamari “tonnerelli” (read: the “pasta” is made from squid) with whelks, cockles, and “sweet 100” tomatoes ($12). All photos courtesy of West Bridge.

Back in January, we told you about West Bridge, a collaboration from Aquitaine alums Matthew Gaudet and Alexis Gelburd-Kimler. At long last, the Kendall Square restaurant is all staffed up (including the addition of bar manager Josh Taylor, formerly of Eastern Standard), and ready to open tomorrow. Ahead, get a look at some of the dishes (including crispy chicken skin with malt vinegar aioli and a fried pig’s head cake with pickled pumpkin) from the opening menu.
