The team behind a popular restaurant in Concord is moving forward with plans for a new restaurant in Back Bay, and there’s now a hint of what’s to come: Mooncusser Fish House will open later this month at 304 Stuart St., according to the Boston Globe. Ian Calhoun, Vincent Vela, and Carolyn Johnson of 80 Thoreau are behind this new seafood restaurant, as Boston Restaurant Talk notes.
Johnson will oversee the menu for Mooncusser, which will showcase local and sustainable fish offerings in the form of a la carte dishes and a five-course tasting menu. The fish selection will reflect the season, with items like striped bass surfacing in July and scallops coming to the table in December. Expect to see dishes like stuffed skate with lobster, potatoes, and baby carrots, as well as seared scallops with kelp, braised potatoes, and white wine.
The restaurant will be located within a triangular-shaped building in Back Bay, as previously reported. The third floor dining space will seat 60. Stay tuned for further details on the impending opening date for Mooncusser Fish House, along with Moon Bar, a more casual bar that will open on the lower level of the space later in the summer.
