A theatrically named restaurant debuted in Boston’s Theater District this month — replacing another theatrically named restaurant — with a tavern-style menu of comfort food, cocktails, and wine: The 4th Wall (228 Tremont St.) is now open in the former Intermission Tavern space. (The restaurant is referring to its current status as a “dress rehearsal” and is planning for more of a grand opening later this month.)
The team behind the new restaurant includes Derek Brady and Theodore Connolly, who are also involved in Union Street Restaurant in Newton Centre. The 4th Wall serves a selection of appetizers like chicken wings, shrimp cocktail, and charcuterie and cheese boards, as well as sandwiches, salads, lobster and corn chowder, steak frites, cheeseburgers, grilled cheese, and more.
For drinks, the 4th Wall focuses on wines and mixed drinks, such as a pomegranate mule with vodka, a “midsummer night’s dram” with whiskey and ginger beer, and a “western” with bourbon and sugar.
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and has televisions for airing sporting events.
