Vela, named for the constellation in the shape of a ship’s sail has fittingly docked in Boston’s Seaport. The newest restaurant in the neighborhood greets guests with expansive windows pointing towards the sea with soothing wind-like floor-to-ceiling curtains. Once seated, Executive Chef Guara Pimenta will take guests’ palates on an unforgettable culinary adventure that explores cultures and cuisines from around the world.
Delectable highlights feature uncommon pairings such as fried oysters, corn & saffron gazpacho, harvest pizza on a mascarpone zaatar, fried red snapper, chicken roulade, Berkshire pork porterhouse and a decadent crispy 50-layer lasagna. Vela Seaport’s global-themed spirits include top-shelf whiskies, aged bourbons and hand-picked wine that pair perfectly with the endless menu items.
As unexpected as it is chic, Vela Seaport welcomes local colleagues for an after-work comparison of single-malt Scotches, next-door neighbors for an every-Tuesday-night dinner, and visitors seeking Boston’s best restaurants.
