Terra to Open at Eataly Boston
[Ed note: This article was updated on March 2 and March 9 to reflect new information given.]
A new restaurant is coming to a massive Italian emporium that opened in Boston's Back Bay a few months ago, and it will apparently be located above the market.
According to a job post within the bostonchefs.com site, a "rooftop" restaurant called Terra is opening at Eataly Boston in the Prudential Center, with the dining spot featuring a wood-fired grill and "regional Italian inspired dishes." The post indicates that the menu will include a number of items from the market below, including dry-aged meats, house-made pasta, fresh seafood, and more, with charcuterie and house-made sausage being mentioned. Two posts on the bostonchefs site show that Terra is currently looking for line cooks and a sous chef.
Eataly Boston opened its doors in late November, moving into the space where the Pru food court had been. Celebrity chef Mario Batali is one of the partners involved with Eataly, which has locations in Manhattan's Flatiron area, Lower Manhattan, Chicago, and Los Angeles, along with others in Europe, Asia, and South America.
The website for Eataly can be found at https://www.eataly.com
[March 2 update: A new job post within the bostonchefs.com site says that Terra will be on the third floor mezzanine above the rest of Eataly. It is not yet known if this means Terra will include both an indoor space (on the mezzanine) and an outdoor rooftop area; as soon as we find out more, we will post another update here. (The earlier link above has the wording changed from "rooftop" to "mezzanine.")]
[March 9 update: Eater Boston mentions that Terra plans to open April 4, and that it will include an open dining room, though there is no mention of rooftop dining. The article also says that Dan Bazzinotti (Bergamot and BISq), who was Eater Boston's 2015 Chef of the Year, will be the chef de cuisine.]
