This week has been a good week for deli-loving Bostonians. Yesterday, a second Moody’s location arrived, and today is opening day for Our Fathers Delicatessen — the latest from the Franklin Restaurant Group (Tasty Burger, Franklin Cafe, and Citizen Public House).
The deli is situated at the corner of Western Avenue and North Harvard Street, directly next to Trader Joe’s, and is yet another part of the massive revamping of Barry’s Corner that’s taken place in the past several years.
Our Fathers is part takeout/part dine-in joint. Patrons can get corned beef or pastrami on rye, but they can also get beef tartare or wine herring crostini — the menu highlights Jewish deli classics as well as modern Israeli cuisine. As previously reported, there’s a big focus on gin — over 85 varieties are available and featured in plenty of cocktails.
For now, takeout is available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends, with the full-service restaurant and bar serving dinner beginning at 5 p.m. daily and staying open until 2 a.m. (The kitchen closes at 1:30 a.m.) Full-service brunch and lunch will begin at a later date.
