With patio season in full effect, I’m all about finding cute new places to dine al fresco! Last week I chowed down on the shimmering patio, delicious plates and refreshing drinks at Craft Table & Bar with Billy Costa and Jenny Johnson from Dining Playbook! See what we chowed down on below, and be sure to check out my Dining Playbook segment on NESN at Kirkland Tap & Trotter and our past dinners at Tuscan Kitchen and Capo!
Craft Table & Bar in East Boston
I don’t get to explore Eastie often, so it was a treat to sit outside and dine on some truly great food here. Owner Frank Peace’s wife used to live here, so it’s a special location for their restaurant filled with nostalgia and memories of their early dates which is so cute!
Billy and the influencers (and their cameras per usual)! How relaxing is this patio? It would be so great for a summery brunch or a romantic dinner under the stars!
The pizza was delicious, and I loved the modern plates & presentation.
The Nicoise salad is so pretty!
Can’t go wrong with tuna & avocado apps. Another stunning dish that evoked oohs and ahhs from the guests!
These BBQ chicken pops were one of my favorites of the evening.
Jenny recommended the chicken parm, which absolutely did not disappoint! It was delicious and their entrees came in such generous portions that I had amazing lunch leftovers the next day.
The short rib pasta looked so scrumptious and hearty!
Don’t even get me started on the blueberry cheesecake with honey! So refreshing for summer and still the perfect sweetness after a big meal.
Billy and Frank talking about the Craft Restaurant group – later this summer they’re coming out with a Brew Beer Garden with a huge selection of craft beers, live DJ’s and bands, and coolest of all you can order from any of the many restaurants around the beer garden. So a waiter will come up to your table and everyone in your party can order from a different venue if they want! I’ve never heard of such a cool concept, so I’m really excited for it to open!
Proof that Billy eats dessert!
Jenny looking stunning & summery as per usual! I absolutely recommend Craft Table & Bar for the delicious and pretty food, refreshing cocktails, summer patio and great ambiance!
