Woods Hill Pier 4, the latest concept from operating owner Kristin Canty, debuted at the tail end of 2019, bringing farm-to-table dining to Boston’s Seaport neighborhood. As with all of Canty’s restaurants, which include Woods Hill Table and Adelita in Concord, the philosophy behind Woods Hill Pier 4 is to provide guests with delicious food made the highest quality organic ingredients.
The menu at Woods Hill Pier 4 lends itself to a group dining experience where dishes are meant to be shared. All ingredients at Woods Hill are organic, non-GMO, and come from local area purveyors. Given the restaurant’s proximity to the Seaport fish piers, there's s surplus of fresh, sustainably caught seafood from local fishmongers and all the meats on the menu come from The Farm at Woods Hill and other local farms that raise animals ethically and feed from an organic grass-based diet.
A variety of small plates as well as a selection of larger dishes allow diners to everything that's on offer. Guests can expect the menu to change frequently as the Woods Hill team source seasonal ingredients from sustainable purveyors and local farmers including Canty’s own, The Farm at Woods Hill in Bath, NH. Each dish is a true labor of love and served on thoughtfully sourced materials such as custom made glass bowls from Simon Pearce.
The beverage program at Woods Hill Pier 4 showcases small batch, local distillers alongside wine selections that are organic, biodynamic and natural. Similar to the food menu, the cocktails at Wood Hill Pier 4 will also utilize as many ingredients from their farm and other local farms as much as possible. The beer is entirely local, unfiltered and unpasteurized with 10 to 15 rotating can and bottle varieties from breweries such as Barewolf based out of Concord, MA and neighbors Night Shift Brewing Company.
Conceptualized by Boston-based Analog Studios, the 186-seat space is reflective of its waterfront location, featuring oceanic blue hues and a light and airy ambiance. Woods Hill has teamed up with several local female artists and designers such as Julia Powell and Lindsey Adelman to commission pieces that will adorn the walls. Boston artist Betsy Silverman has created a collage that features buoys created entirely out of recycled magazines, which is front and center in the entryway and a nod to the nautical décor of the iconic Anthony’s Pier 4. Come the warmer months, the 60-seat patio is sure to be the best table in the neighborhood, offering panoramic views of the harbor. Woods Hill Pier 4 also has a private dining room which can accommodate up to 50 seated guests.
