The Outlook and The Lookout Are Opening at the Envoy Hotel in Boston's Seaport District
A new ground-floor restaurant and a new rooftop bar are both coming to an upcoming hotel in one of the hottest sections of Boston.
The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting (via a Licensing Board page within the City of Boston website) that The Outlook and The Lookout will be opening within the Envoy Hotel on Sleeper Street in the Seaport District, with the former being a ground-level dining spot with an outdoor patio and the latter being a rooftop drinking spot--and it appears that both will have views of the water. The post says that the hotel is going before the board today to seek a transfer of a liquor license from the former Tonic restaurant in Jamaica Plain.
Once it opens, the Envoy Hotel will be part of the Autograph Collection of hotels from Marriott, according to Boston Hospitality. (The website for the hotel is at http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/bosak-the-envoy-hotel-autograph-collection/)
The Marriott site says that the hotel is slated to open in June.
[June 22 update: According to its website, the Envoy Hotel is now open, and The Lookout rooftop bar has opened as well, with the drinking spot having fire pits and ceiling-mounted heaters, along with local microbrews made just for the bar, house-made craft cocktails, and wine. (The Outlook won't be opening until the fall.)]
[September 22 update: A Twitter post from @FortPointChan indicates that The Outlook is now open (a phone call to the place confirms this), with the post--which includes photos--saying that "The layout is amazingly pretty." A check on the web page for The Outlook shows that it offers a seasonal menu with mostly New American fare using locally-sourced ingredients; craft cocktails and microbrews are offered, and live entertainment will take place at least five nights a week.]
