Porchetta and Serious Cocktails in Fort Point
We just spoke with Large Marge.
She’s our on-call, porchetta-sensing telephone psychic.

, a new cocktailing asylum with whole animals and homage-paying wall art,
aiming to open on Congress Street early next week.

create a stunning 30-foot wall mural that pays homage to his master sculptor uncle.
You’re going to want to hit this place after work with your buddies, starting at the bar. They’ve got
bottled beer but no beer taps, so you’ll kick things off with a Blush Baby
(white and amber rum,
blackberry, wine) or one of the other cocktails designed by the staff’s bartender friends across the
country (in this case, NYC’s Clover Club).
Then, you’ll grab a table and dig into plenty of oysters, spit-roasted quail, porchetta and rabbit
(all small-plated for sharing

“Today’s Animal”—dishes using local whole animals, like pigs from Massachusetts, lambs from Maine
and goats from Vermont.
Vermont makes some impressive goats.
