I don't know if Terry Francona is sticking around or whether Chris Christie is getting into the race. What I am sure of is that Radiohead will not be playing the opening of a new Frank McClelland restaurant in East Somerville.
The out-of-left-field rumor surfaced today, prompted by a flier for a neighborhood meeting to be held Oct. 12 about the space formerly known as Khoury's State Spa.
There is some truth behind it. Daniel Bojorquez, longtime chef de cuisine at Sel de la Terre in Natick, plans to leave in 2012 to open his first restaurant in that space. He has worked for McClelland for 12 years, and the Sel de la Terre/L'Espalier chef-owner is helping Bojorquez navigate the process of opening a restaurant. It will not, however, be affiliated with McClelland or his restaurants.
The planned restaurant will be called La Brasa. It will feature wood-grilled meats and is likely to reflect Bojorquez's Mexican background.
