After opening in Boston on New Year’s Eve, Philadelphia-based City Tap House (10 Wharf Rd., Fort Point) is wasting no time starting up brunch service at its newest location. Brunch launches this weekend (January 7-8) and continues every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The menu (see below) plays around with apps and sharing-friendly dishes, including spicy baba ghanoush with flatbread; whipped ricotta with orange-fig jam and a grilled baguette; and pulled pork nachos. There are also seven wood-fired pizzas, including The Hangover: country sausage gravy, cheddar, fried egg, caramelized onions, and breakfast potatoes. And there are entrees in both the breakfast and lunch spectrums, from blueberry pancakes to a burger, along with six substantial salads (with optional additions of steak, chicken, shrimp, and/or avocado).
Don’t worry about missing the game while brunching and sipping mimosas; the restaurant has plenty of televisions, including a few giant ones by the bar.
City Tap House first opened in Philly in 2010 and now has two locations there, along with one in DC, one in Florida’s West Palm Beach, and this new Boston location. The small chain is known for its extensive craft beer menu and comfort food. City Tap House also offers a separate kids’ menu and a gluten-free menu (including pizzas).
City Tap House Boston is currently serving dinner 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The brunch launches this weekend, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, and lunch service is slated to kick in on weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning on January 23.
