Farmstead's Matt Jennings shares a photo of Louis and Michael DiBiccari's soon-to-come Tavern Road in Fort Point. "This place is gonna be sick," he writes.

Fort Point artists made the mural; Coup Boston contains a rather tempting preview of the restaurant in their current issue. Of particular interest: Free WiFi and a separate to-go menu, with calzones! And all for a fair price, too. Says the Improper: "DiBicarri wanted a modern, hip, high-energy place full of local artwork. Price point is, of course, instrumental. Artists simply can’t afford Fort Point anymore, DiBicarri says, so he’s trying to keep the menu simple: most likely charcuterie plates, salumi, porchetta and shared entrees" in an artist-friendly, rustic setting.

A soothing counterpoint to the mega-chains just up the road at the Seaport, no?
