Prospect Lounge, which recently announced plans for a definitive pre-Christmas opening, stated today that it will be adding its sponsorship to and participating in the July 15 Taste of Cambridge Festival in order to meet its neighbors and give them a sense of the innovative cuisine, mixology and music at the core of its concept. At the event, Prospect will give away, in addition to food and drink samples, 200 VIP member cards, which will grant holders priority event and table access as well as discounted food and drinks. Chefs for the initial Prospect booth will be furnished by its online partner, Kitchensurfing (www.kitchensurfing.com), the premiere digital community for culinary experts and enthusiasts.
Prospect is owned by veteran Cambridge restaurateur and club owner, Marc Shulman, and his wife, Patty Chen, a rising star in Boston’s culinary scene, who specializes in Asian comfort food and Taiwanese street food fusion. Together, they head an expanding team of top culinary experts, mixologists and music and club industry veterans coming together with the united purpose of satiating Central Square’s long-time need for an upscale lounge of its own to service the ever growing and increasingly sophisticated number of entrepreneurs, students and young professionals who call the area home.
Prospect’s menu, collaboratively designed and consistently developed by a rotation of hot up and coming local chefs, will offer dishes made with organic and locally sourced ingredients. In addition to tapas, the lounge will offer its original Artisan Bento Board lunches, late night comfort foods and, on Sundays, an American brunch complemented by traditional Dim Sum plates.
The lounge will serve alcohol in the form of beer from local micro-breweries, fine wines of varying exoticism and vintage-inspired cocktails.
A few nights per week and on weekends Prospect will offer live music across genres, ranging from rock to EDM to blues and jazz. Using a state of the art sound system, an in-house studio for recording live acts and an array of current and former music industry professionals attached to the project, the lounge hopes to draw in top quality global acts in addition to selective local talent. Accepted applicants to Prospect’s On2Offline member network will get to participate in the selection of music acts as well as choose featured cocktails and other menu items and otherwise influence the creative development of Prospect.
Prospect’s interior, centered around the visualization of sound, will feature the designs of Stephen Martyak, of studioTYAK, who has conceptualized an array of top Boston venues, including The Sinclair, Boston Chops, No. 8 Kitchen and Spirits and Osushi.
When asked to characterize his hopes for Prospect, Shulman said, “We believe that Central has begun to develop a strong neighborhood culture characterized by innovation, healthy living, love of art and music and respect for diversity. We hope, in Prospect, to provide a venue that shows our equal dedication to such a culture in food, music and ambience.”
