Additional details have emerged about Fenway Park executive chef and Around the World in 80 Plates finalist Steve "Nookie" Postal's upcoming restaurant plans. Chowder reports that his massive Cambridge restaurant called Commonwealth might not actually be called Commonwealth: that's just a working title. Whatever it is called, it will be part restaurant, part market, as previously reported, and will also include "a chicken rotisserie and much of the restaurant sides available to-go in the evening." But that's not all.
And here's the crazy part: a space within the venue will be used as "a yearly-changing separate restaurant concept" to be determined by patrons via social media. Also, Nookie is indeed opening a restaurant in NYC: it will be "a Jewish-influenced bbq joint" called Steinbones. That means Nookie will be joining the elite ranks of those few other Boston restaurateurs like Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette who make the move to the big pond/apple down south. Because there's not enough Jewish food in NYC and too much in Boston, right?
