Tucked in a corner of Weymouth Landing, hidden among faded facades and closed storefronts, new restaurant Passport is a diamond in the ruff.
Started by noted Fat Cat Restaurant owner Neil Kiley, the eatery is only two months old, but it may just be the key to bringing the Landing back from the brink of the mundane.
“What we do in Fat Cat in Quincy, we wanted to do a new concept,” Kiley said. “I want going out to eat to be an experience. ... We want you to enjoy yourself.”
Mission accomplished. At once eclectic and modern, Passport has an intimate feel. Suitcases are placed like scavenger hunt decorations, and a wall mural showcasing scenes from abroad is both great decorating and beautiful art. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
