The Boston-based steakhouse re-launches Atlantic Wharf location with new look

 Smith & Wollensky Atlantic Wharf celebrates its eighth year as Boston’s quintessential American steakhouse in the booming Seaport District area. To commemorate the occasion, the restaurant has made significant enhancements and expansion to the dining room and private event areas, and will introduce an exciting nightly wine dinner alongside their brand new fall menu.   

Smith & Wollensky Atlantic Wharf is located on the cusp of the Financial and Seaport Districts at Boston’s Fort Point Channel. The 10,000 square foot, 280-seat restaurant plus 100-seat patio has been a long-standing and popular fixture in the Greater Boston community, serving their signature USDA Prime dry-aged steaks, premium seafood and award-winning wines to devoted urban-dwelling locals, business diners and travelers year after year.

“We are so thrilled to debut Smith & Wollensky Atlantic Wharf’s new look,” said Kim Giguere-Lapine, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “The restaurant has been upgraded to offer additional dining options for our guests and enhance the overall steakhouse experience. While our guests have enjoyed our waterfront dining spaces, we saw a demand for more private event space capacity and flexibility to accommodate the growing Seaport businesses, residential community and convention groups. We also expanded our patio and outdoor bar experience to stay competitive and fresh in what we offer. And our “After 8” Nightly Wine Dinner program will provide an additional and value-positioned way to enjoy a premium steak and wine experience any night of the week.”

The improvements to the restaurant were overseen by Boston-based Peter Niemitz Design Group and Stys Hospitality & Co. The Private Dining Room has been upgraded to feature a more contemporary design in addition to an expanded capacity, where business and social events from 40 to 110 will be hosted in a flexible, dividable and fully enclosed glass space. The Liberty Room, which segues to the outdoor patio and lounge along the Channel, has been expanded to accommodate groups up to 25 seated for events, providing more versatile indoor/outdoor event layout possibilities. These new accommodations are prime for hosting large-scale holiday parties, corporate events and more, with additional space for partial and full venue buyouts, both in and outdoors.

The main dining room received interior upgrades as well, including a newly expanded wine storage area featuring a custom glass-enclosed Sub-Zero wine refrigeration system, produced by Clarke Kitchens, installed in various areas throughout the restaurant. This premium storage and facility reiterates the supreme quality of the restaurant’s wine program, selection and service, as referenced by the location’s 2018 “Best Of” Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator for their impressive collection of over 600 domestic and international selections.

In marking the eighth year at the location, Smith & Wollensky will begin an “After 8” Nightly Wine Dinner program launching October 29. It will take place Monday – Saturday after 8 p.m. and all day Sunday, and will be priced at $80 per person. Local urban dwellers can enjoy any starter, any steak or entrée, any side and any dessert on the specialty wine dinner menu, alongside a choice of unlimited tastings of four featured wines each evening. The highlighted wines will change monthly and will be posted online in advance. View the menu here.
