With a brand new commuter rail stop in its backyard, Brighton stands poised to welcome a new restaurant nearby: Rail Stop Restaurant & Bar opens this Saturday, June 10, at 96 Guest St., within the new Boston Landing complex.
The restaurant is the first in Boston for Gloucester’s Beauport Hospitality Group, which operates Seaport Grille. The Rail Stop team includes executive chef Jonathan Schick and general manager Josh Medeiros, and the food will feature classic New England dishes. There will be main lunch and dinner menus, a selection of bar bites, and a bar and wine program under the direction of Eli Shapiro.
Expect to see dishes like clam chowder, crispy wings, a BLT sandwich and a signature burger topped with tomato jam and caramelized onion aioli. Dinner entrees will include pastas made in house, seared sea scallops, and steaks, and diners will be able to order specialty cocktails, craft beer, and wine. The name Rail Stop takes is a nod to the new commuter rail stop nearby. The restaurant itself spans 10,000 square feet, with 284 seats inside, including at a 30-seat bar and within a private dining area. There are also 62 patio seats outside.
Rail Stop Restaurant & Bar will open at 4 p.m. on Saturday. It will have daily lunch hours from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and bar bites from 4 to 5 p.m. Dinner hours will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (with bar bites from 10 to 11 p.m.). The bar will be open seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. to 12 a.m.
Rail Stop is one of several restaurants and shops joining the Boston Landing complex: Flatbread Company is also slated to make a home for itself there, bringing its patented pizzas and candlepin bowling to the neighborhood, along with Provincetown’s Kōhi Coffee Company.
