The team behind South End mainstay the Beehive and its younger Harvard Square sibling, Beat Brew Hall — Jack Bardy, Jennifer Epstein, and Bill Keravuori — is on the verge of opening a new restaurant in the South End, this time focusing on Mexican cuisine.
Cósmica will open its doors on February 6, 2020, at 4:30 p.m. at the Revolution Hotel (40 Berkeley St., Boston), with Colton Coburn-Wood at the helm of the kitchen. An alum of Dorchester’s popular Yellow Door Taqueria and Ken Oringer’s now-defunct Fenway taqueria La Verdad, Coburn-Wood will be showcasing his longtime taco enthusiasm with options such as duck carnitas with mole verde and fried plantains; chicken chorizo with cheesy ancho yucca mash; cauliflower al pastor with chipotle pineapple yogurt; and more. In addition to tacos, there will be dishes like chorizo queso-stuffed jalapeno poppers; Yucatan-style cochinita pibil; and a tomahawk asada.
To drink: boozy slushies and sangria, some Mexican beers, a mezcal margarita, seasonal agua frescas (with and without alcohol), and more. (See the full opening dinner and drinks menus below.)
Here’s a sneak peek inside the space, designed by Boston-based Sousa Design and Dave “Dave-O” Olson. It’s meant to highlight the restaurant’s historical mid-century building while still having a modern, energetic feel.
Take a look:
And here are the opening dinner and drinks menus:
When Cósmica opens, it will serve dinner daily, with weekday lunch and weekend brunch starting at a later date.
Update, February 5, 2020: This piece has been updated to indicate an opening date of February 6.
