At night we transform our restaurant into candle lit table service offering casual American food with craft beer & wine. We are just under a mile from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in the bustling Seaport district and just 2 miles from Logan Airport.
You might find yourself starting your busy day off here with the banana & caramel french toast, just to wind up back here for lunch or later that night enjoying the Teriyaki Salmon or BBQ Tenderloin Steak Tips . The atmosphere might shift during the course of us serving three meals a day, but what remains is the same comfortable environment and exceptional food that made our sister restuarant in Beacon Hill famous.
