Today marks Tremont 647’s 14th anniversary. And, to honor the milestone, Chef Andy Husbands has decided he wants to change things up a little bit inside his restaurant. How, you ask? Why, with your tattoos, of course.
As part of a redesign that will debut in January, he’s looking to festoon his walls with a collage of food-inspired body art. Are you inked with a goat? A cupcake? Perhaps an ear of corn or a lovable lobster? Email a photo of your tattoo to firstname.lastname@example.org. He’ll pick though the candidates and decide on his favorite hundred or so.
Then, on January 3, the winners will congregate at his South End restaurant to be snapped by a professional photographer. And as a special bonus, they’ll depart with a restaurant gift certificate. Husbands himself is a big tattoo fan; he estimates that he has “more than five, but less than 20.”
“Really, I’m just having a little fun,” he assures us. Philippe Starck, are you reading this?
