Plans Fall Through for Hill Country in Boston's Fort Point
Earlier this fall, we reported that a New York-based BBQ spot was hoping to open in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood. Now we have learned that these plans have fallen through.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Hill Country will apparently not be opening at 374 Congress Street, with a rep for the spot saying that they have "no immediate plans" to open there, "due to a number of factors." The rep does say that the barbecue place is still looking for a location somewhere in Boston, though no specifics were given as to where they might be looking. Last month, a tweet from @FortPointer (via @jzmartin) mentioned that plans had indeed fallen through for Hill Country, but no confirmation from the restaurant had come until now.
Currently, locations of Hill Country can be found in the Flatiron section of Manhattan, downtown Brooklyn, and the Penn Quarter area of Washington, DC; the restaurants focus on dishes inspired by the barbecue joints of Central Texas, including such options as red chili, brisket, pork loin, sausage, green bean casserole, and more, with meats being served by the pound on butcher paper.
