Following the announcement of Boston Calling's mysterious third stage — revealed to be local comedy sets hosted by Lamont Price — the food and drink lineup of the festival was released today. Downtown steakhouse Ruth Chris will be slinging steak sandwiches and lobster rolls (swanky) alongside Marlborough's Firefly's BBQ Southern comfort foods.
Whole Heart Provisions — born from the minds of chefs James DiSabatino (Roxy's) and Rebecca Arnold (Alden & Harlow) — will be amping up the vegetarian options with their inspired (and surprisingly indulgent) grain and greens bowls, while CopperDome Crust will bring their portable copper-domed pizza oven to the festival to make artisan pies on-site. Vietnamese freshness from Bon Me and newcomer Zinneken’s Belgian Waffles will join Brooklyn's Arancini Brothers — and of course, Tasty Burger will (deliciously) soldier on as the festival's offical patty.
On the beverage front, Samuel Adams will continue on as the official brew of the festival with the addition of a custom beer by Denmark's Mikkeller made exclusively for the event. Meanwhile first-timers, Wine Riot — who are in the process of plotting a permanent home in the South End — will be producing a smaller scale version of their curated wine tasting extravaganza.
Boston Calling, featuring headlines Disclosure, Sia and Robyn, will kick off at City Hall Plaza on May 27 to 29. Tickets and full lineup information at bostoncalling.com.
