Puritan & Co. Looks to Be a Little Less Puritanical

Photo: Rachel Leah Blumenthal

Will Gilson — the chef/owner of Inman Square's Puritan & Co. — may be able to trace his heritage to the Mayflower, but his restaurant appears to be looking to shed his ancestors' (somewhat-undeserved) reputation for avoiding most alcohol. Gilson goes in front of the Cambridge Licensing Board tomorrow, seeking to upgrade his beer and wine license to a full liquor license. The restaurant is named not just for Gilson's familial background, but also for the Puritan Cake Co. bakery that used to be in the same space. So any patrons feeling guilty imbibing in a place named for the pioneers of temperance, can just imagine themselves getting toasted at a bakery instead. Sorry.
