New York's Hill Country Barbecue reportedly plans to open a location in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. A tweet from the Boston Herald's Donna Goodison indicates that the company has applied for a liquor license at 374 Congress St., a space the Texas-based restaurant The Ginger Man previously pegged for its own expansion.
Hill Country Barbecue is a part of a larger hospitality company that aims to "honor and extend the rich traditions of the Texas Hill Country beyond its borders." There are three locations: in Manhattan, in Brooklyn, and in Washington, DC. There are also chicken- and pie-focused offshoots.
The company registered as a business entity in Massachusetts under CEO Marc Glosserman's name, and a filing confirms Hill Country's plan to bring a restaurant and live music to Congress Street in Fort Point.
Hill Country is on Eater NY's list of Top 20 barbecue places in New York, turning out "an almost completely faithful version of Central Texas barbecue."
The Hill Country menu features specially shipped Kreuz sausage from Texas, plus beef, pork, chicken, and assorted specialties like campfire baked beans and Longhorn cheddar mac and cheese.
