The team at Townsman, headed by chef/owner Matthew Jennings, knows that time flies when you're having fun. On Monday March 21st, the restaurant Bostonians have come to know and love, celebrated its very first birthday, despite it feeling like this restaurant has been a favorite for years.
Loyal diners and industry folk alike showed up to cheers to a successful year full of creative dishes. Chef Jennings always shines when it comes to seasonally presented and tasty New England fare. Any time spent at Townsman is sure to impress and its first birthday bash was no exception.
Rarely do you get to experience the dishes of Boston’s top culinary talent in one evening, let alone in one place. Jennings was surrounded by his friends, which included chef stars Jamie Bissonnette of Coppa and Toro, Colin Lynch, Louis Dibicarri of Tavern Road, and Will Gilson of Puritan and Co. To make things even more interesting, some of the top dogs from Providence, RI, such as Beau Vestal and Matt Genuoso, were heating things up in the kitchen.
Over at the bar, four guest bartenders shook up delicious cocktails, while a live jazz band, Legacy Jazz Group of Simsbury, CT, kept patrons entertained for the first part of the evening. It was a night to remember and to commemorate a successful first year flown by and also to celebrate the many more great things to come.
