New Photos from Chris Douglass

Icarus, you may remember from your school days, was the young character in Greek mythology who soared too close to the sun on man-made wings of wax and feathers. When the wings melted, he fell to his death in the sea. That may not seem the best of origins for a successful business. But when Icarus, the restaurant, opened in a tiny South End storefront in 1979, the name seemed to its owner, Chris Douglass, an appropriate reminder to “embrace life, no matter the cost.” With that in mind, check out our updated portfolio.
