Just when you got used to the plaid upholstery, red neon sign and Sid the bulldog, The Punk & Poet is going back to where it all started….The Playwright!  On Monday,  August 20th The Punk & Poet will officially close its doors for quick transformation!

Prepare for the resurrection of the Playwright on Friday, August 24th at 4pm!  The menu will feature favorites like Mac N’ Cheese, Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Cowboy Steak Salad, the Playwright Burger and the Mexican Wrap!  We can’t wait!

 Goodbye Punk & Poet, we hardly knew ya!  Welcome Back, the Playwright!

    Southie folks do NOT like change. That’s for damn sure. Of course everyone liked Playwright so probably a very smart move – probably didn’t need to make the change in the first place. Hope the food is Punk and Poet good as opposed to original Playwright food.

    P&P food is horrible, bring back everything about the old Playwright! Everything about the P&P was weird from opening day, all anyone ever did was complain about one thing or another and I’ve only seen it “playwright busy” when they bus in the kids from the Social Boston Sports leagues…

    Happy to hear the PW is coming back!

    Our boycott succeeded! Can’t wait to see the boys throwing napkins to “This Girl” on Southie Sundays again. Good times. I hope the “Design Consultant” they hired to do punk & poet has a new job. That was hands down the worst idea in recent Southie history.

    How did they expect to be successful when they are consistently “out of”
    Menu items ? Hope they star5 with anew chef.
