Kured — a Boston charcuterie company with a quick-service shop in Beacon Hill and delivery around Greater Boston — is popping up in the Seaport District this summer on a patio called Ombrello. It’s part of an in-the-works space called the Superette, a “European-inspired grand piazza” that’ll ultimately include loads of new restaurants, retail, and other entertainment spanning the first two levels of the Echelon Seaport residential towers.
Ombrello, which is now open, is an umbrella-bedecked patio space meant to evoke the vibe of a coastal Italian cafe. (There’s a custom playlist, of course, because we’re living in the future.) It offers snack boxes to eat on-site or take to go: two charcuterie boxes, a vegetarian option, and a dessert box, available in various sizes. There’s also wine, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks available.
Gilli Rozynek opened Kured’s Beacon Hill storefront in mid-2021, although she started the business earlier as part of a start-up accelerator program at Boston College, initially launching it as a delivery-only business on the Cape and in Greater Boston. Now she offers pickup and delivery from the Boston shop, featuring a variety of charcuterie boxes, like the Basquiat, which includes Ibérico chorizo, aged prosciutto, smoked gouda, cornichons, blueberry jam, and more. There are also single-serving cups, perfect for a solo picnic and a summery social media post.
Rozynek, who was inspired to start Kured while living abroad in Madrid and enjoying the popularity of charcuterie, has described her business as Sweetgreen or Chipotle for charcuterie. The addition of the Seaport pop-up space makes it even easier for Bostonians to grab some meat and cheese on the go.
Consider picking up a box en route to the Seaport’s other new opening this weekend, Kokoda by Love Art, which is serving poke, the Fijian seafood dish kokoda, and more.
Ombrello, a seasonal pop-up, is open now, operating from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Find it at 70 Pier 4 Boulevard, Suite 100.
