A brand new delicatessen and restaurant has come to Boston, and a local group is behind it.
As indicated in an earlier article, Our Fathers Deli opens today in Allston, moving into a space in the Continuum luxury apartment development on North Harvard Street. The new spot is run by the Franklin Restaurant Group (Franklin Cafe, Citizen Public House and Oyster Bar, Tasty Burger) and Boston Magazine states that owners Dave DuBois and Phil Audino have hired chef de cuisine Jameson Poll to head up the kitchen; Poll comes from such places as Tom Colicchio's Craft, The Breslin (which is a Michelin-starred spot owned by and Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield), and Michael Solmonov's Dizengoff, all of which are located in Manhattan. As reported earlier, the new place is a modern deli and restaurant featuring such items as matzo ball soup, charred eggplant, seared chicken liver, potato pancakes, falafel, challah-wrapped cod, and hand-cut corned beef and pastrami, while beer, wine, and cocktails are offered along with non-alcoholic options such as egg cream and shrub sodas.
Boston Magazine says that Our Fathers Deli has seating for 72 in its dining area plus another 20 at the bar and is open nightly from 5:00 PM to 2:00 AM, while lunch and a weekend brunch will be coming at some point in the future. (The deli opens at 7:00 AM on weekdays and 9:00 AM on weekends.)
The address for Our Fathers Deli is 197 N Harvard Street, Allston, MA, 02134.
