13th Annual Ellis Progressive Dinner

  • The Beehive 541 Tremont Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

The Ellis South End Neighborhood Association will hold its 13th Annual Ellis Progressive Dinner on Monday, February 5th.  It’s a marvelous way to meet new neighbors and sample gourmet offerings from our neighborhood restaurants—all at a very reasonable price. We'll meet at Beehive at 5:30 for a welcome reception—wine, yummy Hors d‘Oeuvres, Gemütlichkeit and instructions. Participants will enjoy three additional restaurants, two assigned on a random basis from an “electronic hat”, so you will spend the evening with neighbors that you may not have had a chance to meet and restaurants that you may not have visited. At 6:20, groups of eight will walk to one of the participating South End restaurants for their first course. At about 7:30 you will move on to the second restaurant on your list for your main course with a new group of eight neighbors. After the main course, we'll all reconvene at Barcelona for dessert, coffee and to discuss the evening. Some of the restaurants participating include Banyan, Beehive, Barcelona, Boston Chops, Cinquecento, Coppa, Gaslight, and Tremont 647. A glass of wine is offered with your course at each venue. Our popular, optional night cap at the Beehive will be held again for intrepid South End jazz fans.
