Brassica Kitchen + Cafe is planning to open on Washington Street in Forest Hills the first week of June.
The restaurant emerged out of WHISK, a pop-up by co-chef-owners Jeremy Kean and Phil Kruta that temporarily served diners in Jamaica Plain, as well as the North and South End neighborhoods. According to a press release, Brassica Kitchen + Cafe "will serve the flavorfully fun French-American comfort fare WHISK was known for, using locally grown, seasonal ingredients in unexpected ways with delicious results."
But if you're looking for a sneak preview of the menu, you'll have to wait for the opening. "Patrons of Whisk can expect to see new takes on classic dishes from Kean and Kruta like the octopus tagliatelle, but aside from that the menu is being kept under wraps until opening," according to the press release. A brunch menu and ice cream machine will be in the offing this summer as well.
The owners have previously said that the Fazenda space at 3710 Washington St. will continue to function as a cafe during breakfast and lunch. The hours will be:
Monday: 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. / No Dinner
Tuesday through Friday: 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. / 5:30 p.m to 12 a.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. / 5:30 p.m to 12 a.m.
Sunday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. / 5:30 – 11 p.m.
