Tavern Road is one of the newcomers destined for greatness.
Owned by brothers Michael and Louis DiBaccari, Tavern Road is a neighborhood restaurant and bar that earns the crowd who enters nightly to enjoy their inspired take on local, seasonal fare. This hot spot is welcoming and comforting while skipping the comfort food trend. Tavern Road's perfectly portioned plates of creative items bring in Boston's big name chef/owners to enjoy a meal out during their off hours.
Using local, seasonal ingredients, Chef Louis rotates most menu items. Those that often make the cut from menu to menu are different and delicious. Mains like the porchetta, appetizers like the steak tartare and starters like the whipped feta are menu mainstays that should not be skipped.

Celebrating the local arts community, you'll find the restaurant decked out in a mix of modern industrial chic and family heirlooms. Tavern Road seamlessly melds old and new to showcase the talent of their artist grandfather through that of Fort Point Channel-based artists.
