Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake debuted in the spring of 2009. With over 20 years’ experience under their belt as a bar and nightlife destination, the Rattlesnake Bar and Grill enlisted the culinary expertise of Chef Brian Poe to redesign the menu, adding his creative and fresh take on the flavors of the Americas. Along with the regular menu, Chef Poe also features a “Poe Unleashed” menu, which offers unique dishes for the culinary adventurer. The Poe Unleashed menu changes weekly. Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake features outdoor dining on their roof-deck and al fresco on Boylston Street, as well as private function space in Venom.
