Early Look at Buckminster’s Menu

Buckminster’s, the “neo-bistro” from Michael Pasquarello (Kensington Quarters, Bufad, Prohibition Taproom, Cafe Lift) with chef Rob Marzinsky in the kitchen is set to open at 21st and Federal on Sunday, November 15th.

We have an early look at the menu that tops out at $21 per plate and includes items inspired from Marzinsky’s recent travels and heritage.

And though dinner service kicks off on Sunday, Buckminster’s is hosting an open house with complimentary food and a cash bar on Saturday, November 14th from 6:30 pm. to 10 p.m.
