Having long ago cornered the market on the after work and nightlife crowd, The Rattlesnake on Boylston Street in the Back Bay shifts its focus to the food, with the launch of Poe's Kitchen at The Rattlesnake. Conceived of and executed by chef Brian Poe, the menu at this casual and vibrant eatery, features food of the Americas with innovative combinations of traditional South American flavors and North American ingredients.

Poe's Kitchen at The Rattlesnake is open seven days a week serving lunch, dinner and brunch. The seasonal rooftop patio, which has a full bar and menu, is open to the public from April through October. Just be careful not to crush any of the produce and herbs in Poe's Garden - Poe incorporates them into dishes on the menu whenever he can.
