Southie’s Coppersmith serves Airdeck picnics out of repurposed, wheel-less Radio Flyer wagons. We like the Catch of the Day (price upon request), featuring two dozen baked stuffed oysters, two dozen stuffed clams, two pounds of peel-and-eat shrimp and a batch of cornbread.
Lolita’s new menu offers a range of Feasts, including Pork Belly Cartinas ($55) that are served family-style with Escabeche salad and Valentina onion strings with their house salsas, tortillas, black beans and rice, pickled onions and tortillas on the side.
Assembly Row’s latest addition Southern Kin Cookhouse has the whole fried chicken of your dreams. In the 10-piece So’Kin Bucket ($38): four house sauces (Alabama white, Carolina gold, Kansas City BBQ and honey-hot pepper) and an order of biscuits. A half rack of bbq-d pork ribs can be added for $16.
Downtown at Yvonne’s (sister supper club to Back Bay’s Lolita) guests can share a Crispy Tuna Fregola ($70) made with roasted cauliflower and green olives. They serve it with a spicy Calabrian Chili dipping sauce for the most posh tuna salad you’ve ever had.
In Fenway, Tiger Mama‘s Banquet Style plates serve a hungry table with 1.25 lbs of King Alaskan Crab (price upon request), roasted with chili sauce, topped with beurre blanc. It’s messy, delicious fun and served with savory milk toast to soak up all the juices.
