We’ve got it all here in Southie; million dollar homes, gorgeous beaches filled with scantily clad millennials, former haunts of notorious mobsters turned into trendy restaurants, one man picket lines, buses bursting with commuters, and now we welcome the arrival of America’s Test Kitchen.  Not just the Boston or the Massachusetts test kitchen, no it’s America’s Test Kitchen and they’re moving from Brookline to the Seaport neighborhood of South Boston – because to be honest – who isn’t moving to Southie?

America’s Test Kitchen, which produces wildly popular cooking shows for public television, the magazine Cook’s Illustrated, in addition to numerous cookbooks, is moving to the Seaport’s Innovation and Design Building on Dry Dock Ave in a 55,000 square foot space with four state of the art kitchens next year.  As part of their expansion, they also plan on launching new podcasts and more videos including ones on Facebook Live.

According to the Boston Globe, America’s Test Kitchen hope the new and improved space will help engage their fan base and are hoping to offer tours and invite people to tapings and food tastings.  (Feel free to invite us – we love food!)

And being on trend, ATK will also have a food truck so we can sample their delicious experiments.  The ATK food truck will be in good company being located right near the repurposed shipping containers home of  food truck celebs Mei Mei and Roxy’s Grilled Cheese!

We can’t wait!

    Can we stop calling the Seaport “Southie”? Yes, the technical limits of “South Boston” include Fort Point and the Seaport, but who in their right mind refers to the Seaport as “Southie”? They couldn’t be more different of neighborhoods.

      Dear Typical Millennial,
      Just because you don’t like that it’s called South Boston doesn’t mean it isn’t South Boston. It is, was and will always be South Boston.

        Yeah no, it’s not. It’s Seaport. You seem to be the only one who thinks Seaport and Southie are the same thing because you can pretend like new restaurants opening in Seaport are appropriate for posting here.

          Then why do they refer to the Moakley Courthouse as being in South Boston and not Seaport? Seaport is a neighborhood of South Boston. I am not the only one who “thinks” that either. I realize the Seaport has evolved and changed but it is still a part of South Boston. Gheesh.

            Because it is within the legal district of South Boston. The point is, if you title an article saying that a restaurant is opening in Southie…your average resident immediately assumes E. or W. Broadway, not the Seaport. You may as well start reporting South End activity as it is just as relevant as the Seaport is to a resident of “Southie.”

    The Seaport/Fort Point Channel ARE part of South Boston and always has been!!.. Some of the residents of these parts of “Southie” would rather NOT be part of “Southie”..Why?..because the current south Boston RESIDENT PARKING STICKERS are legal in these areas of Southie..Simply put, these residents of the Seaport/Fort Point Channel part want their separate RESIDENT PARKING STICKERS..I frequently go to the children’s museum, Barlows,Tea Party, ect in the area and am ENTITLED to public parking (with southie resident parking sticker)..and the residents of this area DO NOT like the fact that someone from outside the seaport/Channel area can use these parking spots,!!!
