A new restaurant in Waltham is not open yet, but a couple of events are on the docket to give the neighborhood a peek at what will be on the menu. Brewer’s Tap & Table has two dinners scheduled for the end of the week that are set to feature multiple courses and a cash bar.
The restaurant is the work of Nancy and Matt Sargent, along with Joe Slesar, who owns the space at 256 Moody St. The dinners are scheduled for Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29, and the format recalls the original concept the Sargents started in Vermont called Phantom Dinner, a kind of underground dining operation.
The team has put months of work into renovations and designs at the restaurant, as Sargent previously told Eater, and they are now ready to show off the space (formerly Watch City Brewing Co.) and the menu. Matt himself built several large beer hall-style tables for the restaurant and has designed a globally-inspired rotating menu, and there will be a curated selection of bourbon and local craft beer.
The dinners will serve as a pre-opening preview for Brewer’s Tap & Table, and the restaurant is aiming to debut for real during election week.
