Almost every teen rom-com has an arty nerd chick (wearing glasses!) that you just knew would get that crucial makeover, leaving her hot, sassy, and ready to tongue kiss. Applying that technique to the restaurant biz, Atlantic Beer Garden.
From the guys behind Playwright/MKT/Sanctuary, ABG's fully reinvigorated the prime real estate that once hosted the heinous blight of Eastern Pier II, rebirthing it as a 200-seat, dark-wood & leather bedecked, upscale casual sports lounge: 25 flatscreens, three projection TVs, and a 50-seat back deck with spectacular views of the water, the World Trade Center, and the Spirit of Boston -- vessel of choice for underage drinking from Weymouth to Wellesley. Food's pub-grub, with bad-cholesterol-heavy highlights like Buffalo Chicken Queso Dip, Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls (w/ homemade beer ketchup), a Stuffed Cheddar and Jalapeno Burger, even Fried Snickers, proving that Snickers really does satisfy...to death! Because they are a beer garden, ABG offers 15 varieties on tap (Long Hammer IPA, Blue Moon Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale, Sam Octoberfest...) and 30 bottles, focusing on USA crafts like Rogue Dead Guy, Newport Storm Hurricane Amber, and Boulder Beer Co's Hazed and Infused, a beer that totally thinks you should lay off of Colorado, broseph.
After our long winter's nap, ABG plans on opening their newly fixed-up 120-seat roof deck, because losing the rough edges is fine for the first movie, but for a sequel to work she's gotta put out(side).
