In an area that isn't known for modern restaurants, Brian Poe (of the Rattlesnake) is out to switch things up a bit. His newest venture, The Tip Tap Room, opened last Monday in the old Shangri-La space on Cambridge Street. Not only is it a new food spot, the place is open until 2am every night, giving Beacon Hill-er's another night cap option. (We still love you though Harvard Gardens!)
Aside from the garage door style windows that open up onto Cambridge St., my favorite thing about the Tip Tap Room is the 36 beers they have on tap. Can't find something you like? There are many, many more available by the bottle.
The 'Tip' part of 'Tip Tap' describes the main menu option: Tips! And not just steak tips (pictured above) -- chicken tips, tofu tips, buffalo tips and even elk tips. My personal favorite was the swordfish tips (pictured below), they're served with an interestingly awesome combination of artichoke, olive, tomato, bell pepper & parsley salsa with tapenade mashed potatoes, haricot vert, citrus & herb cream.
Has anyone tried it yet?
138 Cambridge St.
