Rialto chef/owner Jody Adams, in collaboration with former Rialto General Manager Sean Griffing and local restaurateur Eric Papachristos, is set to open her latest venture this week on the Waterfront.
A spokesman declined to provide an exact date, but reservations are listed as early as Friday lunch on Urbanspoon.com.
Trade will be a 207-seat eatery inspired by Adams’ decades of cooking experience in New England, as well as the trio’s world travels—most notably Papachristos’ and Griffing’s visits to family in Greece and Italy. The interior design aims for informality and a welcoming vibe. The building is an eco-friendly, LEED Gold property.
Adams and executive chef Andrew Hebert (former executive sous chef at Rialto), drew on their longstanding relationships with locals farms to develop a menu of small plates, flatbreads, soups and salads. Available main courses include a seafood stew flavored with coconut and a salt-grilled skirt steak with fries. The bar is stocked with an affordable and global wine list, with Gotham Project Riesling and Qupe Syrah on tap. Cocktails will be updated seasonally.
