Meat Madness: A Night at Poe’s Tip Tap Room

Figs, injected with bleu cheese.

Grub Street recently paid a visit to the new Tip Tap Room, Brian Poe’s paean to protein on Beacon Hill. The restaurant occupies the old Shangri La space, and it’s been spiffed up considerably: Windows now open onto the sidewalk, the dining room is painted a soothing orange, and enormous hunks of meat fly out of the kitchen at a rapid rate. When we visited, the place was packed and a bouncer attempted to tell us that the dining room was at capacity. Yet nothing could keep us from our meat: We soldiered on and feasted with abandon. A look at some of our favorite dishes, ahead.
