Back Deck Is Opening in Downtown Boston
A new "backyard barbecue" spot is getting ready to open in downtown Boston.
A job post from the Craigslist site indicates that Back Deck is planning a mid-May opening on West Street, bringing to Downtown Crossing a place to get charcoal grilled food, with the restaurant using three different grills--a Woodshow Broiler, a Montague Charcoal Broiler, and a Mt. St. Helens Shallow-Box Charbroiler. A few of the menu items at Back Deck include hot wings, grilled chicken livers, grilled cheese on sourdough, burgers, sausage and mashed potatoes, lamb kabobs, gumbo greens, s'mores, and a Snicker sundae.
The proprietor of Back Deck (Bradley Fredericks) is the person who founded the Fajitas & 'Ritas restaurants, while the chef/GM (Paul Sussman) worked the brick oven at Al Forno in Providence and was the owner of the now-closed Daddy-O’s in Cambridge (he more recently has been involved with The Fireplace in Brookline, Z Square in Harvard Square, and Brandy Pete's in Boston's Financial District).
[June 15 update: Back Deck is one step closer to opening, as EveryBlock Boston mentions that the place now has a business license to operate.]
[June 18 update: UrbanDaddy is reporting that Back Deck opens its doors today.]
The address for this new restaurant in downtown Boston is: Back Deck, 2 West Street, Boston, MA, 02111. Their website can be found at http://www.backdeckboston.com/
