The 21st Amendment has been a Beacon Hill institution for years, a place where everybody knows your name. Although the pub has had steady business over the years from the neighborhood, owner Peter McCarthy is looking to turn it into a destination for food as well as a friendly atmosphere.
McCarthy brought in Chef Nick Bisesti from the Taj Hotel to help strengthen the menu. About five months ago, they started monthly beer tasting dinners. The dinners are about once a month, always on Monday nights, and cost $40 for four courses, each paired with a drink. “We just wanted to show case his talents,” McCarthy said of Bisesti.
