Chef’s love late night. Late night in Boston often leads Chef’s to Chinatown, no longer the land of cold tea, however you can have your fill of authentic dishes or more American imports of rangoons and such. We tend to go for the unusual, unique and extreme…The dining experience starts around 2:30am.( seriously…) This past weekend after we served a boat load of Island Creek Oysters and Nantucket Bay Scallops for the Big Night Event- for Big Brothers at House of Blues raising 1.7 million in one night! Before the event we had power snacks of Killer BBQ, hushpuppies, biscuits & more in about 45 minutes at the hip bar at Sweetcheeks BBQ near Fenway- this new spot comes from our talented friend, Chef Tiffani Faison- ( pics in slideshow ) After the event we dropped our Coolers back at the Hotel Commonwealth- our favorite spot to stay when doing events; it house both Eastern Standard Kitchen & Island Creek Oyster Bar, the lower level now is where we started our post event gathering with great drinks at Hawthorne- LOVE the silverline champagne cocktail and the overall vibe very grown up mad men meets modern lounge with hand crafted cocktails by wizard Jackson Cannon and the Eastern Standard Kitchen team, we ran into lots of Nantucket friends. We rounded up a crew of our team Island Creek friends- Shore, CJ, Sherm and Will , headed for Peach Farm down the stairs at 4 Tyler Street in Boston’s Chinatown, 1.617.482.1116.
Here is some of what we ordered- Salt & Pepper Shrimp, Squid & Pork; Peking Duck with Buns and Pancakes; Surf Clams with Glass Noodles; Live Scallops with Fermented Black Beans; Live Scallops with Garlic, Steamed Pea Shoots, Sesame Noodles- They were out of Chow Foon which nearly caused a break down…
