Backyard Betty’s Opening on Friday

South Boston welcomes Backyard Betty’s–a new, chef-driven restaurant from the team behind Publico–to its burgeoning food scene at the end of the week. With Executive Chef Jeff Howe at the helm (formerly of longtime favorites Teatro and L’Andana), the bar and grill will be serving a menu of cookout classics and regional, American comfort fare (think: hush puppies, brisket, Nashville Hot fried chicken and a table-side wing cart brimming with your favorite finger food adorned in sauces like apricot-glaze, pineapple teriyaki and southern BBQ). Spruce up your nightcap with an extra-boozy shake, or gather a group of friends ’round large format cocktails while you geek out over vintage televisions, the Art Deco decor and retro arcade games. The new spot, located at 170 West Broadway Street, will be open seven days a week from 4:00pm-1:00am, with the kitchen serving up eats until 11:00pm nightly. Can’t wait? have a look at the inaugural menu below, and give ‘em a call at 617.766.8955 if you need more details or a table.
