Curtis McMillan, the general manager of upcoming South End speakeasy Wink & Nod, chatted with Eater in late January, giving a few hints about the upcoming venue, which is set to open on March 15. One thing he wouldn't reveal was information about the food program. "We are talking to some people who we unfortunately can't mention yet," he said, "but let's just say that if it goes the way I want it to, it's going to be destructive in the South End. That's all I can really say at this point."
This morning, Boston.com's Restaurant Hub blog broke the news that chefs Philip Kruta and Jeremy Kean, the team behind the popular Whisk pop-up, have found a permanent home at Wink & Nod. Say hello to Whisk at Wink & Nod.
The official statement:
"Boston Nightlife Ventures is excited to announce Whisk at Wink & Nod, an unprecedented collaboration between Boston's newest craft cocktail destination and the chefs behind the ambitious, highly regarded pop-up restaurant Whisk. With this venture, Chefs Philip Kruta and Jeremy Kean are reimagining standard drinking fare with an inventive à la carte menu of New American plates and bar snacks featuring the team's signature vivid flavors and unexpected touches. Designed to complement Wink & Nod's playful takes on classic cocktails, the menu will change seasonally with the exception of select staple dishes familiar to fans of Whisk's past pop-ups. Whisk at Wink & Nod begins serving food in mid-March, when the bar opens to the public."
