The 110-seater captures the playful and creative efforts of the brothers who leaned on their Uncle Adio DiBiccari, an American master sculptor, for inspiration. (The name comes from Tavern Road, the street where their uncle had his studio near the Museum of Fine Arts in 1952.)
The menu focuses on small plates meant for sharing and features Louis’ signature style of using locally sourced New England ingredients in a creative fashion. Small plates include salumi, charcuterie and oysters, while striped bass, cobia, rabbit and capon figure into entree portions. Each week Tavern Road will feature “Today’s Animal” - a locally-raised whole animal whose parts will make up specialty entrees and appetizers.
As for decor, there’s an open kitchen, an expansive bar headed by Ryan McGrale, formerly of No. 9 Park, and a 30-foot st. art-style mural done by local artists, which is an interpretation of their uncle’s works.
TR Street food, the fast-casual takeout version of Tavern Road situated adjacent to the restaurant, is slated to open next month.
“Fort Point Channel has been a hotbed for artists for decades,” Louis DiBiccari told Zagat in an earlier interview. “I’m all about the idea of innovation and the way this area is going, but this is Boston, and you can never forget your roots.”
Tavern Road is open seven days for dinner.
