As previously reported, Brian Poe, chef/owner of several other venues in the same restaurant group, is buying into Bukowski (both this and the Back Bay location) and changing up the menu to be "more upscale," with a focus on burgers ("but with some exotic meats thrown into the mix.") The Globe mentions a trio of mini hot dogs: alligator sausage, venison, and bison. Despite the upcoming changes, one signature Bukowski feature, the "mug club," will remain.
According to Bukowski Tavern's Facebook page, it looks like Somerville-based Aeronaut Brewing Company beers might make an appearance at the restaurant once it reopens. But there's another local brew, Pretty Things, that will decidedly not be found at this or any other Wilcox Hospitality Group establishment.
