Take a talented female chef, a former financial services whiz and a rotating round of art exhibits. Place them in an historic Boston structure in the Back Bay, formerly the Boston Charter School at Arlington and Stuart Sts. and voila! Liquid Art House, a restaurant with its own exciting dynamic, now open and paying tribute to the creative talents of numerous artists with a menu of dishes reflecting the cuisines of France,Germany, Lithuania and more.
Chef Rachel Klein and Ruta Jureviciute and Chef de Cuisine Ensan Wong bring their collective capabilities to the new concept, a blending of art with food, from the paintings to the magnificent Murano glass chandelier over the bar.
The building, now The Arlington, is a luxury rental residence, a "premiere living experience" that combines classic architecture and a contemporary lifestyle.
Liquid Art House brings together art installations with food/art pairings, and the gallery-restaurant is, as Jureviciute puts it, "the canvas which assumes the shape created by it s artists and diners."
Outside In, the current exhibit of street art by artists from around the globe, runs through June 17. “These works look past the cultural dissonances and speak to our humanity,” says Ana-Katarina Vinkler-Petrovic, Curator of Liquid Art House. “We are excited to feature these modern-day storytellers for the first time in Boston, in some cases the United States, whose art continues to transcend into gallery spaces around the globe.” In addition to art that hangs on the wall, the exhibit includes jewelry as well.
Chef Klein, herself a former art student, calls food "the purest form of art." The menu offers a wide variety of options from tables for six to "food for starving artists" such as Eastern European dumplings. There's something to tempt all the senses at Liquid Art House.
