Viale to open in Central Square; La Brasa opens this week

Greg Reeves and Mark Young have bought Central Square’s Rendezvous (502 Massachusetts Ave. at Brookline St.) from longtime owner Steve Johnson and will turn it into a new creation by September. Viale — Italian for “avenue”— will serve Italian food with Mediterranean nuances. For now, Reeves is executive chef at Charlestown’s Pier 6; he’ll also help chef Daniel Bojorquez open Somerville’s La Brasa this month. Young has worked at Green Street and Spoke Wine Bar.
