Eventide Now Open | Fenway Boston
The fine-casual iteration of the award-winning Portland oyster bar has a Boston spin on the classics here at 1321 Boylston Street. That includes a larger version of the trademarked Eventide brown butter lobster roll, and a unique program of house-made sodas to complement a beer and wine program perfect for pre-gaming.
The 70-seat spot is larger than the original—and more dramatic. Blond wood ceiling panels are meant to recall to mind a shell’s spiral, and the Boston location’s oyster bar focal point is 10,000 pounds of Maine granite, compared with Portland’s 1,500-pound original, Eater Boston reports. Once spring rolls around again, it will offer 16 seats outside.
It is the fourth restaurant for the company’s James Beard Award winning chefs Andrew Taylor and Mike Wiley, with partner and General Manager Arlin Smith. Eventide Oyster, Hugo’s and Honey Paw sit cheek by jowl in Portland and share a kitchen.
