Current Menu @ 606 Congress

I apologize for this being so late, I always like posting my most current menu and this one has been running for about 4 weeks at the restaurant. You'll notice a little more casual approach as we are in the middle of the Boston tourism season with lots of transient guest at our hotel. Interestingly as I continue to evolve as a chef understanding the guest base at a hotel is so much different than understanding it at an independent restaurant. Since we have a specialty restaurant we can get away from the more traditional hotel fare, but always keeping in mind that our valued guests at the hotel are people we want to make sure we make happy during there stay. The demographics change weekly and that has been an interesting challenge in my career that I have never had to deal with in the past very much. Without losing focus on who we are in our restaurant, always providing an indigenous experience focused on Modern Farm cuisine and Modern New England Seafood dishes we did add some casual items focused on the summer season.
