For over thirty years, the Briar Group has helped Boston families and corporations to celebrate significant milestones and ordinary weeknights alike. With a diverse collection of eateries and pubs, from the cozy brick styling of the Anthem Kitchen + Bar to the invigorating freshness of the Brew Café, the Briar Group has a little something for every palate.
Gather Food and Drink is one of Briar’s most stylish, innovative spaces. A full-service bar and restaurant overlooking Boston Harbor, Gather serves up inventive, modern American-inspired cuisine that will accommodate all manner of taste buds. A refuge from the hustle and bustle of the pioneering District Hall, Gather’s menu represents a commitment to the local, with ingredients sourced from nearby Massachusetts farms wherever possible.
Recently voted one of the 9 Hottest Brunch Spots in Boston by the popular Zagat travel guide, Gather is a testament to easy elegance paired with timeless style. The Improper Bostonian named Gather one of Boston’s Best Restaurants in 2015, and it’s easy to see why: with a desirable location, a dynamic menu, and one of Boston’s hottest cocktail lists, Gather is perfect for date night, weekend brunch with the gang, and everything in between.
Gather’s dinner menu puts Boston’s seafood on center stage. With an appetizer list featuring the Chef’s Selected “Seacuterie” platter, a Mirin-dressed Tuna Carpaccio, and Locally Harvested Oysters, you might not even make it past hors d’oeuvres! Consider a succulent Lobster Roll as an entrée, or feast your eyes – and your palate – on the exquisite Confit Rabbit and Gemelli Pasta. Fresh, dynamic pizzas and elegant sides, like Cauliflower Gratin and Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts, round out the menu. Gather’s simple, luxurious desserts are the proverbial icing on the cake, and an extensive Drinks list means you’ll never leave parched! With an array of craft beers, fresh cocktails, and wines from around the world, Gather’s beverage selection elevates any meal from ordinary to extraordinary.
Gather Food and Drink is the perfect venue for events your guests won’t soon forget. Whether you’re ringing in the holidays with co-workers or celebrating a golden anniversary, Gather’s stylishly intimate space comfortably accommodates groups of between ten and twenty-five guests. The adjacent District Hall is also an excellent venue for events, and Gather works in tandem with this innovative space to deliver high-caliber social gatherings, weddings, cocktail parties, and more. District Hall’s Semi-Private Lounge can accommodate up to 150 guests, and District Hall in its entirety is available to rent for groups of up to 450. Whatever your hosting needs, Gather and the Briar Group’s team of event planners can assist you in creating the event of your dreams.
