Chef John Tesar's Preston Center temple of fancy seafood, Spoon Bar & Kitchen, just announced that it's switching to a tasting menu only format Tuesdays through Thursdays. Per a press release, menu options will consist of "a five-course for $65, eight-course for $100 and an exquisite chef's tasting menu with pricing determined by the menu." Diners will also be able to tack on crudo and raw bar selections at an additional price. The a la carte dinner menu will now be available Friday through Sunday only, alongside a $125 tasting menu option. (Additionally, Sundays will offer "Lobsterfest," a one-and-a-half pound lobster "with all of the trimmings" for $55, plus a five-course $65 tasting menu option.)
Spoon also just appointed a new chef de cuisine: Mark Gordy, who started out on the crudo station at Spoon when it first opened in late 2012 and also opened Tesar's other restaurant, Knife, as a sous chef. The same press release also promises that Tesar — who's been largely present at Knife since it opened back in May — will now be spending more time in the kitchen at Spoon.
