First Look At Poe’s Tip Tap Room

Ladies and gentlemen, the Tip Tap room is open for business as of Monday, officially making the Beacon Hill bar scene way better than it was before. We have craft beer now! And innovative food! Whaaat! If that wasn’t enough to make us happy, they are open until 2 every night with a full menu available until 1:30. It’s a miracle. I speak on behalf of the entire hill when I say, THANK YOU POE!

It’s hard to describe the joy that ensued when I found out one of my favorite Boston chefs, and friend, Brian Poe, was opening his new spot mere blocks from my apartment. That’s why I had to check it out the day it opened, naturally, even though I wasn’t at all hungry and probably shouldn’t have been drinking on a Monday. I need a few more visits before I (or Jacki) writes a full post on Tip Tap, this is just meant to make your mouths water and give you all a little taste of what’s to come.

There are 36 beers on tap, and tons more available by the bottle. We tried the Green Flash West Coast IPA on draft and the Victory Prima Pils in the bottle.

Steak Tips — House Marinated, Horseradish Potatoes, Cherry Pepper & Watercress Slaw, Bordelaise

Just looking at this picture again makes me happy, only Poe would serve steak with hot peppers. Anyone who loves heat will definitely love this dish, otherwise exercise caution. I should note that this menu is way different from that of the Rattlesnake, definitely not as much spice, but it pops up thoughtfully here and there. How could it not?

For me this was the standout dish. First of all, you just never see anything like it! What is that? Awesome is what it is. The fish was cooked perfectly, and the heaviness of the mashed potatoes is cut perfectly by the acidic salsa on top, then the cream just brings it all together. 

Excited yet?

    WAAAAAY over priced. Food is just as crappy as the Rattlesnake. Service is A JOKE.

    • Meesh says:

      I’m surprised you feel that way, and would have to completely disagree. The food is moderately priced, and as goes with any new restaurant, service is a little shotty until they get their bearings in a new space — but I actually The Tip Tap Room service was way above average for a new restaurant.
