Canary Square is slated to open this week in Jamaica Plain; it’s the newest endeavor from Michael Moxley and Jim Cochener, the masterminds behind the South End’s Coda Bar and Kitchen and Allston’s Common Ground Bar & Grill. Expect an industrial-style space with plenty of eco-friendly touches (hey, they’re in JP, after all), including a large bike rack to accommodate hungry cyclists. There’s a patio, too. Click through for the American-with-flourishes menu.
