Pub & Kitchen Adds Fat Mermaid to New Menu

Pub & Kitchen’s chef Jonathan Adams sent out a nice note yesterday, kind of giving a state of the bar for the popular Graduate Hospital bar and restaurant. With the note he included a new menu that “showcases food that is approachable and familiar but with a signature touch. With it, we’ve added the kind of food that WE want to eat when we go out.”

If you’re a regular visitor to Pub & Kitchen you know things are always changing. The bar recently replaced its Middleton Ale with a specially brewed Sixpoint Pale Ale that pairs especially well with the Churchill Burger and its little brother, the Parliament burger.

We’re looking for someone to split the Fat Mermaid Seafood platter (pictured above) with us.This feast includes, 8 oysters, 8 littleneck clams, 8 poached mussels and 4 prawn cocktail, marinated lump crab salad and Maine sea urchin.
