Prescott to Meld the Americas in Charlestown

A forthcoming restaurant plans to pay homage to its Charlestown roots with dishes like "freedom flautas."


A new restaurant is set to carve a niche for itself in a largely industrial part of Charlestown. Prescott is coming soon to 50 Terminal St., according to Boston Restaurant Talk, and it will feature a taste of Latin America in its classically American-style menu.

The concept of Prescott "was born of a shared vision to infuse the Charlestown dining landscape with new and diverse flavors," according to the restaurant's website. The building in which Prescott will open along the Mystic River across from Chelsea is called the Charlestown Commerce Center.

Prescott's lunch and brunch menus are now available online and feature small plates — bayonet fries, freedom flautas, and chicken bocados, for example — plus salads, tacos and burritos, burgers, pancakes and French toast, and a host of egg dishes. The dishes give a number of nods to Charlestown, including the "Bunker Hill burrito" and the "Constitution chilaquiles."

The restaurant will reportedly be open for lunch on weekdays and brunch on weekends.
