Join Us – Newbury Street League (#NSL) is Celebrating Being 45 Years Young!

Roost Bistro Blog - September

On Thursday, September 28th, the Newbury Street League’s Annual Fundraiser will take place as we celebrate being 45 years young! Join The Roost Bistro and Newbury Guesthouse at the event to look back and celebrate all that has been accomplished while also looking forward to all the great things that the future holds for all those who love Newbury Street as much as we do!  

This year our celebration will take place at an amazing new venue – SPACES Newbury Street, 361 Newbury at Massachusetts Avenue, in their newly renovated penthouse which offers skylights, hardwood floors and high open ceilings. You will enjoy the very best from Roost Bistro and our sister, the Patisserie on Newbury, at the Taste of Newbury Street, along with the chance to win fabulous prizes through the raffles & silent auction. And let’s not forget about the music & dancing – a great night awaits you!

Each year this event raises half of the annual budget to support the #NSL Mission, which is twofold: the beautification of Newbury Street and the continued marketing and support of our member businesses that make the street what it is today!  

The mantra of the Newbury Street League has always been that everyone support each other.  We love our street and you should too! So come help us make the evening a success!

Brunch – The Most Important Meal of Your Day

RB Brunch Blog

Whoever said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day clearly has not experienced brunch at Roost Bistro. With flowing mimosas and sweet and savory menu items to choose from, you can’t go wrong in your weekending if you do brunch at ‘the Roost’! See our top three reasons below why brunch is actually the most important meal of the day.

Brunch saves time – who has time to sit down and enjoy a balanced breakfast, lunch and dinner when you’re trying to take in all that Boston and historic Back Bay have to offer? When you do brunch, you are being strategic. You are smartly combining breakfast and lunch so that you have more time to enjoy the city’s sights and sounds. Do work!   

You have ALL the options – Did we mention sweet and savory delectable menu items? At brunch, your options are doubled. You can choose between our famous sweet stuffed french toast, or our famous lobster benedict. Actually, it’s your brunch – you can have both if you want! The options for brunch are unlimited, and your favorites are sure to be on our menu.

It helps your Insta game – What other reasons are there for brunch other than delicious food and scintillating mimosas? Why, Insta pics of course! We all do it – once that beautiful brunch dish comes out fresh from the kitchen, we grab our phones and snap a pic on Ig. And we sure do love using hashtag favs such as #FoodPorn, #InstaFood and #Yummy! Be sure to use #TheRoost next time you brunch with us and get your pics profiled!  

By the way, did you know that we now offer brunch SEVEN DAYS A WEEK? Yes, you can taste all that your heart desires on our brunch menu (with mimosas!) any day of the week you please. So for those of you who are ‘brunch gladiators’ and have a flexible weekday schedule, feel free to stroll in and taste the finest sweet and/or savory brunch at Roost Bistro on historic Newbury Street.

Stroll Along Newbury Street Carefree – #OpenNewbury

Open Newbury

Looking for something to do in Boston the last half of this summer? Come check out Open Newbury!

There are only three times this whole year when you can stroll down Boston’s famed Newbury Street in historic Back Bay without stressing about traversing the traffic and the possibility of getting ran over, and that’s during this spectacular street event. Newbury street is closing down for pedestrians only to shop around and taste the delicious cuisines only found here.

What: Open Newbury

Where: Newbury Street – Between Arlington St to Massachussetts Ave

When: August 13th, September 10th

How: Thank you Boston!  

The first Open Newbury just went off spectacularly this last Sunday. It was an absolutely beautiful day! We were out there to greet our visitors and offer up samples of our zesty delights at our table right there on the street. From savory baguette bites to sweet cranberry pecan bread to refreshing evian, our guests were able to sample what Roost Bistro and sister restaurant, the Patisserie on Newbury, has to offer. We also gave out coupons to our Roost Bistro reopening, happening this August 15th, for complimentary appetizers upon dining with us and checking out our revitalized menus.

The next Open Newbury, on August 13th, our team along with our family from Patisserie on Newbury will be out in full force with delicious sweet and savory samples of our new dishes along with refreshing lemonade for a $1. Think you might need a recharge while taking in all the sights and sounds of Open Newbury? We’ve got you covered – $1 cups of our famed iced coffee. And if you come early enough, you might be able to get a spot to play a game of cornhole!

So come out to Open Newbury to sneak-a-peek at what’s to come from our revitalized menu and taste the deliciousness that is surely to keep you coming back the rest of the season. We are also giving out coupons again for complimentary appetizers during the reopening of the Roost Bistro. We’d like to sincerely thank our fans for their patience while we get our light renovation and revamped menus ready for an even greater dining experience! .

New Chef + New Menu = Roost Bistro’s Fresh Reemergence

RB Outside

Springtime in New England is like nature’s fresh warm reemergence. The ground is new and and all that nature has improved upon is apparent. Not unlike this spring’s arrival, Roost Bistro’s is also experiencing its own fresh reemergence. We are excited to announce that we have a new Executive Chef at the helm of our beloved bistro, with a new inspiring menu full of zesty farm-to-table dishes.

Jeff Feldman, our new Executive Chef, hails from Sharon, Massachusetts and now resides in Stoughton. After discovering a passion and talent for the culinary arts, Jeff went on to Providence, RI to attend Johnson and Wales University – one of the premier culinary and hospitality schools in the country. Go Wildcats! Realizing Boston was transforming into a foodie’s heaven, Jeff smartly situated himself in the thriving Beantown and got to work. He worked for restaurant brands such as Newbridge on the Charles, East Bay Grill and Franklin Country Club – building up his culinary prowess. Jeff even cut his teeth on his very own restaurant for three years – The Crosswalk Cafe. After deciding he wanted a spot on the famed Newbury Street – Boston’s fine-dining corridor, Jeff joined Roost Bistro as our new Executive Chef. And he’s been “cooking” ever since!

So, with this new spring comes a new chef, and with that new chef comes a new and improved menu. Understanding what truly motivates Boston area foodies, Jeff has expertly fused fresh organic meats with zesty sun-ripened fruits and vegetables into our menu. Luckily for us, Jeff only cooks with all natural non-gmo goods that are fresh and taste amazing to the pallet. Way to keep us healthy!

With all these fantastic changes at Roost Bistro, you’ll HAVE to come in for a visit and check it out for yourself. We’re excited about our new and improved menu, so excited, that if you mention you saw this in our blog, we’ll offer up a complimentary appetizer with your brunch or dinner! #winning
