|Bill Brodsky, chef/owner of City Landing, which opened July 27.|
The restaurant, adjacent to the New England Aquarium and overlooking The Rose F. Kennedy Greenway, is flooded with natural light. Tones of green and blue play on the waterfront and Greenway location. The bar and lounge area seats 48, including two communal tables. The patio, which seats 30, features views of the Greenway and the Waterfront.
Chef/owner Bill Brodsky offers a contemporary American menu that spans from small plates ("Bar Crumbs") like pork belly sliders, and yakitori duck meatballs, to appetizers, entrees, sandwiches, salads, pizzettas and more for lunch. Apps include spinach and ricotta farmhouse dumplings with Parmesan, mushrooms and artichoke crisps; and Bostonian shrimp ’n’ grits with roasted peppers. Among the main courses are Berkshire pork Oscar topped with crab cake; and caramelized day boat scallops with mushroom ravioli. As far as beverages, the wine list offers about 80 wines and there are craft cocktails and craft beers.
City Landing joins a handful of restaurants that have opened along Boston’s Waterfront in recent years, among them are Smith & Wollensky, Trade and the revamped Aragosta and Waterline - not to mention the Seaport District, which has seen Del Frisco’s, Temazcal and many more overlooking Boston Harbor.
City Landing is open seven days for dinner, Monday through Friday lunch, and will open for Saturday and Sunday brunch in the future.
