A small chain gastropub known for its beer bar is opening a new location in Fort Point, and it's currently looking to secure its liquor license from a now-closed hotel restaurant, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. City Tap House is looking to move into 10 Boston Wharf Rd., according to the licensing paperwork; the address appears to refer to the same building previously reported as 374 Congress St.
The restaurant could take over the license from the Boston Park Plaza's McCormick & Schmick's, which closed in June. City Tap House will be on the first floor of the six-story building on Boston Wharf Road, and its approximate 2,000 square feet of space will seat 128, with room for a bar and a seasonal outdoor patio. The closing time is planned for 2 a.m.
City Tap House has two locations in Philadelphia and one in Washington DC. It has an extensive craft beer menu and offers refined American pub food in the vein of tartufo pizza, farro risotto, fois gras mousse, and blue crab mac and cheese.
