Located in the heart and soul of Beantown’s Faneuil Hall, Anthem is a popular and strictly delicious gem. Bostonians stay true to the Anthem of their city, and in this particular culinary case, it’s an awesome venue serving up mouthwatering American cuisine.
The chic interior of the restaurant presents a trendy bar scene, surrounded by tall glass walls so eaters can gaze out into the bustling cobblestone marketplace. Sit atop chic bar stools or in a comfy booth next to Anthem’s bar while savoring a luscious cocktail. Or maybe it’s the refreshing lobster cobb salad with juicy pieces of lobster you’re craving. Whatever your palate desires, Anthem’s inventive menu includes everything a hungry city-goer craves: a true taste of what Beantown has to offer. The award winner of Boston Chowderfest 2010 and 2012, Anthem is home to the “Best Chowder in Boston!”
When picking Joonbug favorites, the decision came down to a tough call. Everything our team has savored at Anthem has been a scrumptiously pleasing experience. Let us break it down for you with a few outstanding recommendations.
Start off your evening with the fried green tomato salad, prepared with homemade mozzarella, fig balsamic reduction, arugula, parmesan cheese and EVOO. This starter is both crispy and juicy at the same time. If you are in the mood for a wood grilled flatbread pizza, go no further than the prosciutto piewith plump poached figs, arugula, tomato and grated parmesan cheese. It is simply out of this world. If you would like to treat yourself to some of Boston’s amazing seafood, the lobster mac + cheese never disappoints, prepared with a creamy four cheese sauce and herb-crumb topping. How about spicing things up with the red, white + bleu burger, served with sautéed onions, roasted red peppers and blue cheese? If you choose to go this route, you simply cannot enjoy your burger without craft beer, magners or angry orchard hard cider. Take your pick…Anthem has got you fully covered. Anthem’s lunch & dinner menu is served every day from 11am to 10:30pm.
When it comes time for dessert, there is a clear winner and Joonbug favorite on the menu. Baked to creamy, doughy and chocolaty perfection, the dessert pie is a show stealer. This unique pizza pie is topped off with caramelized bananas, hazelnut cocoa spread and toasted marshmallows.
Anthem is fully prepared to take on the warm weather with its patio seating. What’s better than rocking your favorite pair of shades on a gorgeous spring afternoon, soaking up the sun out in Faneuil Hall and indulging in Anthem’s ‘rustic comfort food’? Certainly not much!
