Earl's Kitchen + Bar Heats Up the Prudential Center

Earls Kitchen + Bar is a Canadian-based restaurant chain that has made its way to a number of US cities. I haven't had the chance to check any of them out before, but I was recently invited to the opening party of the new location at The Prudential Location.

What I was surprised to see, and one of the coolest part of Earls at The Pru is the Cocktail Lab downstairs, where they will feature guest bartenders from all around the city.

The Goddess Manhattan, created by one of the restaurant's regular bartenders, was one of the bloggers' favorites of the night.

Other rotating bartenders who was also behind the bar that night were Will Isaza and Melinda Johnson-Maddox. I'm definitely excited about coming back to check out the Cocktail Lab and see who's behind the bar!

We also tried some bites off the menu during the party, including the Spicy Tuna Sushi Press (spicy soy marinated tuna, chives, nori, avocado, pickled ginger pressed on sushi rice, topped with sriracha mayo)

The tuna was served aburi-style, a.k.a. seared.

Hawaiian Coconut Shrimp, mango-cucumber slaw, spicy curry lime dip - avocado toast in the back.

The sliders were surprisingly good, I even had two.
The interior is decorated with black leather banquettes and an industrial look.

The beautiful outdoor dining area is bound to be one of the hottest patios in town. The retractable roof ensures that the area is usable in all weathers.

Earls Prudential also has happy hour offering discounted foods from 3-6pm Monday-Friday and late night happy hour from 9pm-close from Sunday-Thursday.
Earls certainly surpassed what I expect out of chain restaurants. The samplings of food that I tried were good, but mainly I'm excited about the downstairs Cocktail Lab and getting drinks from the local guest bartenders.
