If you’ve been to Tandem Bakery the last few months you’ve no doubt noticed the construction going on across the street where The Francis, a boutique hotel, is under development. The Francis will include a 1500 sq ft, 40-seat restaurant called Bolster Snow & Company (instagram).
Nicholas Verdisco is joining the team as the chef for the restaurant. Verdisco plans to serve a menu of contemporary American cuisine with possibly some influence from his family’s Italian heritage. He’s moving to Maine from New York State where he’s worked as the executive sous chef at The Inn at Pound Ridge, a Jean-George Vongerichten restaurant. He came to his culinary career later in life after working in investment banking.
Bolster Snow & Co. is named after the company founded by the original owner of the building and his business partner Lucien Snow. The Francis along with Bolster Snow & Co. is expected to open sometime this Fall.
The building at 747 Congress Street is the Mellen E. Bolster House designed by Francis Fassett and John Calvin Stevens.
