Details on City Landing, Replacing Sel de la Terre- Long Wharf This Summer
We learned about a month ago that Sel de la Terre’s Long Wharf location would shutter to make way for City Landing, a restaurant from former Wequassett Resort chef Bill Brodsky (in the meantime, there’s a series of pop-up dinners at SDLT, including an Asian noodle-bar themed pop-up that starts tonight).
Now emerges some more news on SDLT’s successor, an ambitious concept opening in July that marks the first Boston eatery for Brodsky. “I feel like it’s the place to be at the right time,” he says of heading to downtown Boston. “I think that area is only going to get better over the next two years, with all of the development taking place.”
Those who have visited the Wequassett’s flagship fine-dining restaurant, 28 Atlantic, will recognize some of the fare that Brodsky plans on serving at City Landing (think crab cake-topped pork oscar with bearnaise, a pizzetta topped with smoked salmon, egg, and creme fraiche, and caramelized scallops with mushroom ravioli); he says it will be tweaked to suit a more casual atmosphere.
More fun, adventerous plates will be available at the bar, courtesy of what Brodsky is calling a “Bar Crumbs” menu, which will feature three rotating small plates per night. While they will change frequently, Brodsky says to expect dishes like hoisin-and-chile-glazed yakitori-style meatballs, strawberry shortcake with seared foie gras, and chicken and waffles.
