A New York-based restaurant focused on sourcing local and seasonal ingredients is getting ready to open its first regional location in Back Bay, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Dig Inn Seasonal Market is now hiring employees for its 557 Boylston St. farm-to-counter restaurant and could open in April, per a posting on Craigslist.
The restaurant's signature menu item is the "marketplate," in which a choice of protein comes on either a bed of greens or grains, plus two sides. Because of its sourcing methods, there is a degree of variability on pricing, menu items, and preparation of the foods served across Dig Inn restaurants.
Boston's first Dig Inn will source some of its ingredients from a range of local farms and producers, including Plainville Farm, 4 Town Farms, Pete's Greens, Pleasant Valley Gardens, Ward's Berry Farm, and Farmer's Garden, as previously reported.
The Back Bay restaurant will feature communal tables and an open kitchen that showcases Dig Inn's chefs, plus outdoor seating for the warm months in Boston.
