The news is exciting for Portland and Boston residents alike, as Taylor and Wiley plan to open an Eventide location at 1321 Boylston St. later this year.
Chefs Mike Wiley and Andrew Taylor have made the James Beard Foundation list of finalists for Best Chef: Northeast! We could not be more proud of them and are so grateful to the James Beard Foundation for recognizing their hard work and talent. Congratulations to all the finalists!! #bigtreehospitality #eventideoysterco #jamesbeard #jbf
Though several chefs and restauranteurs with local ties were nominated for the Oscars of the food world heading into Monday night’s award ceremony, the only other winner based in New England was Legal Sea Foods CEO Roger Berkowitz, who was one of five honored as the “Who’s Who of Food and Drink in America.”
Prior to Taylor and Wiley winning the award on Monday, representatives for Back Bay sushi restaurant Uni announced that the chefs will hold a pop-up at Uni on May 15, offering some a la carte seafood items alongside Uni’s usual dinner service. Earlier this spring, reservations disappeared almost immediately for another Eventide pop-up at wine bar Haley.Henry.
