An Allston gastropub is planning to expand into Arlington.
Common Ground Bar & Grill, at 85 Harvard Ave. in Allston, is planning to open its second location somewhere in Arlington.
The restaurant tweeted the news at Arlington Patch Tuesday and already has a second Arlington-specific Twitter handle, @CommonGroundARL.
The handle’s description reads, “Common Ground Bar & Grill, our second gastropub, will be opening soon in Arlington! We are excited to meet you!”
A request for more information was not returned late Tuesday.
The Allston location, which opened 16 years ago but is under new ownership, features three trivia nights, “Funk Wednesdays,” “90’s Night” on Fridays and a “Millennium Party” on Saturdays. It also has brunch buffets on Saturdays and Sundays and all-you-can-eat barbecue on Sundays as well.
The Allston menu has a number of small plates, soups and salads, sandwiches ($8-10) and large plates ($11-13). Its drink list includes 20 beers on tap, nine specialty cocktails and other beer and wine.
The restaurant had not applied for an operating license with the Town of Arlington as of Tuesday afternoon.
We hope to have more information soon.
