The airy Tavern Road in Fort Point is a hip eatery that merges the neighborhood's recent emergence and the creative community who's long occupied the area. DiBiccari has a lot of connections to the art community in Boston (his uncle was an artist), so the artwork displayed in his restaurant is also done by local artists.
Chickpea frites, sweet and spicy tomato jam ($5)
Maine Crab conserva, soffrito, fried pita, pickles, herbs ($12)
Duck and yellow bean pupusas, smoked cheese, sugar pumpkin sauce ($9)
Lamb meatball tostada, baby arugula, tzatziki, feta, harissa ($14)
My favorite dish of the night was actually that evening's special, white prawns with rotisserie pineapple and habanero sriracha sauce - made using sriracha produced at a local Massachusetts farm, Kitchen Garden Farm!
To me, this dish not only showcases Tavern Road's support of local farmers and producers, it was also simply delicious!
The cocktails at Tavern Road are also not to be missed - even after the sudden and sad passing of beloved bartender Ryan McGrale who used to head the program, it's good to see that the team is still holding strong.
Peru-ve Me Wrong (La Caravedo pisco, apricot, Madeira, lemon, bitters, $11)
I really enjoyed the Blackbeard's Delight (Pig's Nose scotch, ginger amer, Southern Tier Pale Ale, lemon, brown sugar, $13), which pretty much combines most of my favorite ingredients and flavor profiles (smokiness, ginger, bitters, and effervescence)
Dessert was a brightly flavored passionfruit pudding, a perfect end to the meal.
