From shishito peppers to ratatouille, there's something for everyone on Allston Yacht Club's ever-changing menu.Ask Bill DiDonna, co-owner of Allston Yacht Club and he'll tell you the Echo Park restaurant was born out of a tremendously bad idea. "Allston is a place near Boston." he explains, "I was in this one punk band when I was a kid, and one day the bassist said, 'All we need is our own yacht club.' We were so broke, it was the most ridiculous idea I'd ever heard. From then on, calling something a 'yacht club' became shorthand for a truly awful idea of legendary proportions."
Self-proclaimed restaurant refugees from Boston, Bill and his co-owner Charlie Kelly are avid home cooks that fold in the latest food trends and cuisine from around the globe into their seasonal menu. From shishito peppers to ratatouille, there's something for everyone on this ever-changing menu. "You can eat as little or as much as you want and you won't break the bank." Despite the menu changing every 3 weeks or so, there's one item that has surprisingly stuck since the beginning, "Of all the food trends in America, I can honestly say we're ahead of the curve on Brussels sprouts." A dark horse foodstuff fit for such a yacht club.
