Poe's Tip Tap Room Is Opening in Boston's Beacon Hill
The owner of three Back Bay restaurants is looking to open a new dining spot in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood, and the person who will be in charge of the place is a well-known chef in the area.
According to The Boston Globe, Poe's Tip Tap Room is going to be opening on Cambridge Street where Shangri-La restaurant used to be, bringing to the neighborhood a place to get inventive pub-style food. The person behind the proposed eatery also owns the two Parish Cafe restaurants on Mass. Ave. and Boylston Street as well as the Rattlesnake Bar and Grill on Boylston Street. The article mentions that Brian Poe of Poe's Kitchen at the Rattlesnake will be heading up Poe's Tip Tap Room, featuring such items as game tips (elk, yak, alligator, etc.), Maine shrimp and lobster tips in lemon butter, and more. High-end beers and wines will also be offered at the new restaurant, which will have a capacity of 200.
The Beacon Hill Civic Association's Zoning and Licensing Committee still needs to approve Poe's Tip Tap Room (a meeting is scheduled for tomorrow), and a meeting with the Boston Licensing Board will need to happen as well (possibly sometime this month) before the restaurant can open.
