Boston’s Seaport District may not have an ax-throwing bar (although it does have a dart-throwing venue), but at least it’s getting a location of the growing chain Puttshack, which describes itself as an “upscale, tech-infused” mini golf “experience.” With three locations in London, one location in Atlanta, and several more in the works in Chicago, Nashville, and Miami, Puttshack announced today that it’ll arrive in the Seaport in early 2022 as part of WS Development’s development off of Seaport Boulevard.
The giant venue — clocking in at 26,000 square feet — will have four mini golf courses. The courses use technology that keeps score for players, because this is 2021 and who wants to count their own swings? For food, there’s a mashup of global influences; the Atlanta menu has dishes like chorizo and cheese empanadas; poutine; Maryland crab dip; barbecue pulled pork sandwiches; flatbreads; and skillet cookies. For drinks, there’s a full cocktail bar.
That’s not the only news coming out of the neighborhood’s food and beverage scene. A new bakery opens on May 29, Love & Flour out of Salem, New Hampshire; it’s located at the Current, Boston Seaport’s collection of retail pop-ups at 100 Seaport Blvd. Love & Flour features macarons, cupcakes, and cakes, as well as cake accessories (candles, toppers, etc.) and some beverages. There will be some tables inside and out, as well as Seaport Common’s lawn space next door, for customers wanting to snack onsite.
And one more coming addition to the Seaport: Madras Dosa Co., a fast-casual Indian restaurant from the team behind South Indian chain Godavari and Khiladi NYC, will open in June. This will be the first location of Madras Dosa Co., and it will unsurprisingly feature dosa — thin South Indian crepes with a variety of fillings, as well as curries and chutneys for dipping. The restaurant will offer onsite dining as well as takeout and delivery via the major third-party platforms. Look for it at 55 Boston Wharf Rd. next month, open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
