This September, Massachusetts is welcoming its second Earls Kitchen + Bar to the culinary scene. Located in the Prudential Center, the timing couldn’t be better. As autumn approaches, so does the drive for heart-warming and creatively conceived meals. The three-story restaurant includes a cocktail bar, a 300-seat dining room and a cozy rooftop terrace. Plan an evening in line with the layout: an after work aperitif before taking a seat inside for one of Earls’ globally-inspired plates and dessert or a final cocktail below the stars.
The menu has been designed to reflect the diversity and fast-paced nature of Boston’s Back Bay. A scratch kitchen, a new feature for the restaurant group, uses ingredients that are locally sourced and favored by Northeasterners. And armed with a completely local bar staff and craft cocktail program, putting a spin longtime favorites, the edge will be taken off the dropping temperatures.

What lies at the core of Earls is family. That atmosphere has been captured in each of its 66 locations, and will bring that same sense to its place in the Prudential. Detail is important, and individuality shines, making it an “unchained chain.” Artwork specifically created for the restaurant lines the walls: downstairs, brightly painted posters showcase the bands that have made an apperance here; upstairs, the city’s striking features (Converse, the Citgo sign and the Zakim bridge) are whimsically collaged. Say hello to your new local haunt.
For all of life’s hectic days, Earls Kitchen + Bar makes it simple. earls.ca
