Sam's at Louis Open on Fan Pier

A new restaurant, Sam's, recently opened inside the new Louis Boston building on Fan Pier: 

The local bounty of New England’s farms and artisans; the simplicity of an American Diner; the endless and timeless appeal of the French Bistro menu; and the warmth and welcoming spirit of our home.

It's being run by restaurateur and former Radius and Via Matta partner Esti Parsons, with her husband Drew.  The chef is Ken Rogers, who has worked at Via Matta, Bina Osteria, and 88 Wharf.

Sam's has a large outdoor patio with views of the harbor.

Peter Harris Opening Tonight

Nothing Lasts Forever

Digital Composites / inkjet

Gallery at Bob's Your Uncle
25 Channel Center St.
Fort Point, Boston, 02210

Opening reception:
Thursday August 5: 6 - 8pm

Bob’s Your Uncle Gallery is pleased to present new work by Peter Harris. This large scale work consists of black and white digital files of found objects printed on red rosin paper. In continuing with his use of the grid, each piece consists of 63 digital files stitched to complete the whole. The artifacts from this digital manipulation vary in intensity and belie the apparent straightforward nature of the imagery. This tension between the seemingly tangible, and the transient nature of the digital medium, creates an environment within which the imagery can be explored.
