Taffer's Tavern Opens at Arsenal Yards in Watertown on August 31

A couple of years ago, it was reported that the TV host of a reality show was planning to open multiple outlets of his tavern concept in the Greater Boston area. Now we have learned that the first location will be opening later this month.

According to a press release, Taffer's Tavern at Arsenal Yards in Watertown opens to the public on August 31, with its grand opening taking place on September 8. As mentioned in an earlier article, Jon Taffer of the Paramount Network's Bar Rescue is behind the place, whose menu will include such options as New England clam chowder, lobster rolls, and braised short ribs, while drinks will include The Campfire (brown butter whiskey, bitters, simple syrup) and Berry-Impressive (fruit-infused vodka, lemon, fresh mixed berries in a French Press).

The press release also says that this is the "first of many locations" of Taffer's Tavern that will be coming to the Greater Boston area.
