Fairsted Kitchen owners Andrew Foster and Steve Bowman have announced that they’re opening a new restaurant in Jamaica Plain this summer, along with Fairsted’s former beverage manager Alex Homans. The new concept, which is taking over the space formerly occupied by the Centre Street Sanctuary, is going to be a Lowcountry-inspired restaurant called The Frogmore.

An homage to executive Chef Jason Albus’ (formerly of Fairsted Kitchen) South Carolina childhood, The Frogmore will serve items spotlighting the unique coastal cuisine of South Carolina and Georgia. The moderately-priced menu will reflect the traditions of Southern cooking, with a focus on sustainable seafood and fresh vegetables.

The beverage program at The Frogmore will be guided by co-owner and Fairsted alum Alex Homans, who has created a menu honed in on “traditional spirits driven by the flavors of the Southern table,” as well as syrups, bitters, and tonics, all made in-house. Homan will also be bringing a rotating beer selection celebrating American and European craft beers.

The curated, all-American wine program will be overseen by Fairsted Kitchen and The Frogmore co-owner and sommelier, Steve Bowman.

When The Frogmore opens, supper will be served nightly from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., with brunch served on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
