Curtains Open For The 4th Wall In The Theater District
Boston, MA - When Intermission Tavern ended a successful thirteen-year run last May, theater-goers were left with a dilemma regarding casual dining its absence. After all, the Tam only serves liquid dinners; and if you can afford to shell upwards of $90 per individual ticket, a Subway is probably not (nor should it be) your ideal destination.
Enter the 4th Wall.
Named after a thespian concept in which an imaginary wall separates performers from their audience, the 4th Wall is the brainchild of Derek Brady and Theodore Connolly, who are also responsible for the new management of Newton’s iconic Union Street Restaurant.
While the restaurant’s Instagram site defines its byline as a “Work in Progress,” they’ve already managed to garner several positive reviews locally.
Similar to its predecessor, the 4th Wall offers tavern-style comfort food; although slightly more gussied up than the club sandwiches and buffalo popcorn shrimp theater-goers might remember from the Intermission. Well… only slightly. Menu items include potato leek soup, a charcuterie and cheese board, a vegetable crudite, Statler chicken breast in leon jus and roast salmon in lemon brown butter. And just like its predecessor, the drink menu boasts of novel takes on familiar cocktails; including a pomegranate Mule, a Lemon Ginger Bourbon Fizz, a “Midsummer Night’s Dram” with whiskey, mint and ginger beer and a small but respectable wine and beer selection.
While the 4th Wall has been open on a limited basis since mid August, it’s only been in the past two weeks they’ve expanded their hours to include lunch and dinner service.
The 4th Wall is located at 228 Tremont St in Boston, and is open Monday-Sunday from 11:00 am - 2:00 am. For more information, visit www.4thwallrestaurant.com
