Tilted Kilt — a Vegas-based sports bar chain known as the "Scottish Hooters" because of the skimpy, Scottish-ish attire of its waitresses — could open a Boston proper location and a Billerica one this coming fall, reports the Herald. The Boston restaurant will be next to Fenway Park, although the chain's Northeast area developer, Joe Amodio, declined to give the Herald an exact address because another business is still in operation there. Construction is slated to begin around June, and the restaurants will have about 225 seats each.
Tilted Kilt had a Quincy location in the works back in summer 2012, but the opposition of a nearby church ultimately shut the deal down. So far, New England has largely escaped the grip of the self-declared "Best Looking Sports Pub You’ve Ever Seen," aside from a location in Wethersfield, Connecticut and another in Nashua, New Hampshire. When the restaurant was founded, the intention was to create a "contemporary, Celtic-themed sports pub staffed with beautiful servers in sexy plaid kilts and matching plaid bras," according to the website, which also describes the members of the management team, including Shannon Reilly, "a free spirit and conspiracy theorist," and John Reynaud, "a great guy and aspiring golf pro."
Want to be a "Kilt Girl," a waitress at Tilted Kilt? "Imagine trying to land a role in a Hollywood movie or sexy fitness calendar," the website suggests. "You want to look and act your best! These auditions are just the same. To land the role, you gotta play it up, girl! Grab your favorite outfit, glam up your hair and make-up and visit a franchise location today for an audition. You may end up being the next calendar cover girl."
On the food side (yes, there's food), it's standard pub fare, from "big arse burgers" to wings and flatbreads. Wash it down with shots that will remind you of college nights you forgot.
