Big Tree Hospitality is planning to launch their new restaurant this Friday at 5pm. XO Burger and Wings (website, instagram) will be serving a “menu full of crushable Americana” with options like the Good Morning Burger (shown) with egg, red onion jam, hash brown and hot sauce, the XO Burger with XO sauce, banana peppers, and smoked cheddar, Chili Crisp Wings with house chili crisp and scallion, and a Grilled Caesar with grilled romaine, house mackerel caesar, mackerel “anchovies” and parmesan.
XO will be operating out of Hugo’s in Portland and Eventide Fenway in Boston with purely a takeout/delivery service model.
Big Tree Hospitality is led by Andrew Taylor, Mike Wiley and Arlin Smith. In 2012 they bought Hugo’s from then owner Rob Evans and Nancy Pugh and in the same year launched Eventide. They went on to create The Honey Paw in 2015 and open Eventide Fenway in 2017.
