“You'll feel right at home”

Located around the corner from one of Chef Maws’ food idols – Julia Child’s house – in Somerville, The Kirkland Tap & Trotter’s atmosphere embodies an eclectic and cozy neighborhood vibe akin to some of the best “gastropubs” in England.  “The Kirkland Tap & Trotter is an ‘every night of the week’ kind of establishment, serving favorites you would find my friends and family gathered around on a Monday night,” says Chef Tony Maws, who first introduced Bostonians to his cuisine in 2002 with Craigie Street Bistrot, later reincarnated as Craigie on Main in 2008. Chef Maws’ French-inspired “refined rusticity” and an unyielding passion for the best local, seasonal, and organic ingredients, have become his trademark. “You’ll find the same ingredients on the menu at Kirkland Tap & Trotter that you see at Craigie, but here they will be prepared simply and perfectly executed. You won’t see any swooshes on the plates here. I wanted to create a place where I could hang, and guests can embrace my jeans and a t-shirt philosophy, feeling comfortable enough to eat with their hands and play air drums,” says Tony. The 115-seat restaurant includes a 12-seat bar, with additional seating at high top tables alongside a large open dining room. The kitchen and menu centers around a large wood-fired grill set into a masonry base. The Kirkland Tap & Trotter showcases dishes that Chef Maws enjoys at home with friends and family. The beverage program features a large beer list, and an expansive wine by the glass list tilting toward Old World terroir and funky wines. Additionally, The Kirkland Tap & Trotter has partnered with Revolution Cocktails to create a unique cocktail menu with drinks that are well-crafted but “don’t take ten minutes to make.”

Chef Tony Maws's casual followup to the decidedly upscale Craigie on Main takes his local-sustainable ethos and dials back the fancy flourishes--which means rustic, stick-to-your-ribs plates like housemade spaghetti with chicken liver and brown butter sauce, and fatty spiced lamb ribs.
