‘Bar Rescue’ star opening new restaurant in Boston area

WATERTOWN, Mass. — One of the most popular names in reality television and hospitality is opening a restaurant in the Boston area later this summer.

Jon Taffer, the star of Paramount Network’s “Bar Rescue,” will welcome the public into Taffer’s Tavern at Arsenal Yards in Watertown on Aug. 31.

“I’m excited to announce that our next Taffer’s Tavern opening will be in this historic and vibrant area of Boston,” Taffer said in a statement. “Boston is home to some of the first bars and taverns in the country and has a rich tradition of discerning taste, especially when it comes to their drink and dining preferences. Our great food and industry leading cocktails will set new standards and excite the market. We are looking forward to welcoming the community in to experience the Tavern and to create lasting memories.”

Taffer’s Tavern will feature a tavern menu that includes fan favorites like braised short rib and tots, New England clam chowder, and lobster rolls. There will also be an array of craft cocktails and beverages to choose from.

The restaurant vibe is described as old-world with an ambiance that is inviting, warm and comfortable, distinguished by dark woods, soft leathers, and copper accents.

A grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Taffer is slated to take place on Sept. 8.
