Trade at Atlantic Wharf Is Opening Along Boston's Waterfront

A couple of months ago, we reported that four restaurants are planning to open at the new Atlantic Wharf complex along the Boston waterfront, and that one of the eateries would have a celebrity chef behind it. It turns out that the celebrity chef is the chef/owner of an upscale Italian restaurant in Cambridge.

According to The Boston Herald, Jody Adams of Rialto within the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square is going to be opening Trade at Atlantic Wharf, a new dining spot that will feature Mediterranean fare with French, Greek, Italian and Spanish influences. The Article states that prices for items, which will include slow-cooked stuffed pork and grilled bluefish, will run from $23 to $30. It appears that the new dining spot will include a huge interior canopy within the space, as well as a bar in the middle and a quiet dining area. The restaurant will be open for both lunch and dinner, with lighter fare (including sandwiches) served at lunchtime.

The Atlantic Wharf complex is located between the Rose Kennedy Greenway and Fort Point Channel at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Congress Street by South Station. Other restaurants moving into the building include a branch of Smith & Wollensky as well as a new location of Sorelle in Charlestown.

[October 14 update: According to UrbanDaddy, it looks like Trade may be opening sometime next week.]

[October 21 update: According to Grub Street Boston, Trade soft-opens tonight.]
