Duck Tacos and Local Drafts in Fort Point
Started pretty great with those Sox and Pats last-minute victories.
And it’s going to end pretty great with some chicken wings fried in duck fat.
Because your week will be topped off at Gather
, an airy new place for deconstructing tacos, wings
and Chartreuse-laden cocktails, slated to open this Thursday in Fort Point’s District Hall.
The first thing you’ll notice in here is a certain work-in-progress aesthetic
. There are giant, hole-punched boards of cork over
the slate bar. And roughly 120 mismatched lightbulbs dangling by extension cords from the high ceiling.
It’s like a workshop where they build roasted-duck tacos with apple kimchi instead of... workshop
Your assignment: grab a friend and sit and admire the views of Boston Harbor from those floor-to-ceiling
windows. Helping you with this task: a Chartreuse Smash
, which is like a whiskey smash but with
green Chartreuse. Or if you’re not in a Chartreuse mood, go ahead and explore the dozen local beers on
One other thing: they’re into daily specials here. On Tuesdays, they’ve got BBQ brisket and cornbread.
Thursdays are all about porchetta. Saturdays and Sundays are for duck-fat chicken wings.
And football. Saturdays and Sundays are also still for football.
