Taffer’s Tavern has celebrated the opening of the new locations with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on 1 September in D.C. and 8 September in Watertown, Boston. The brand’s first location opened in Alpharetta, Georgia, and the second in the FedEx Field as a concessionaire in Landover, Maryland.
“We are looking forward to welcoming the greater Boston and D.C. communities in to experience our elevated tavern offerings and to create lasting memories,” said Taffer.
The brand’s restaurants are designed with traditional, old-style taverns in mind, with dark woods, soft leathers and copper accents.
“We are excited to welcome the first Taffer’s Tavern to the New England area and be a part of the new development of Arsenal Yards in the Boston suburb of Watertown. Jon’s vision of creating a place for the community will resonate well in this neighborhood. His commitment to quality and the highest standards are reflected in everything we have done here, creating a place that will provide our guests with a welcoming atmosphere and elevated tavern menu that they will enjoy again and again,” said Marc Magerman, of 8G Hospitality and local Boston franchise owner.
“We worked with Jon Taffer on creating an incredible restaurant experience where every detail was discussed and developed with our guest experience in mind,” said Feliple Hasselmann, local D.C. franchise owner and Cuisine Solutions president and CEO.
“It has been a great experience for us to consult with Jon on the state-of-the-art kitchen design for the Taffer’s Tavern concept, and we are thrilled to be a franchise owner as well. So, while the tavern itself incorporates many state-of-the-art innovations when it comes to food preparation and safety, the focus is delivering a high-quality, delicious experience in an inviting environment that we know our patrons will enjoy.”
