Eric Brennan to Land at the New Clarendon

Come October, the restaurateurs behind Grill 23 and Harvest will open a new venue, this time a neighborhood tavern in Back Bay at the forthcoming Clarendon luxury condo building. The kitchen at Post 390—its name refers to its location at the former site of post office—will be helmed by former Excelsior chef Eric Brennan, who plans to serve up classic comfort food in a casual-yet-polished setting complete with fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The restaurant will also feature two full bars, and while menu specifics are as yet unknown, spokesperson Nicole Barrick says the food and the atmosphere will be completely different from that of Grill 23 and Excelsior. Think refined American cuisine à la Houston’s or Stephanie’s, hints Barrick.
