jm Curley

Former Boston mayor James Michael Curley was known as a man of the people: charismatic, popular, and controversial. The same could be said at this restaurant that shares his name. jm Curley's menu is crowd-pleasing, but not without controversy. Case in point: the jelly donut, which is fried in bacon fat, filled with strawberry rhubarb, and glazed with foie gras. Need more examples? How about the organic hot pocket, made with grilled leeks, Vermont raclette, and tempura or the beet Doritos made with beet powder, citric acid, and corn tortillas. Of course, jm Curley is out to please all the people, so these eclectic offerings are balanced by more traditional dishes such as a 9-ounce natural angus burger or fried chicken with biscuits, both of which tread the middle ground in the culinary divide. Regardless of whether diners prefer their cuisine creative or conventional, all can come together over a beer. But even that may prove contentious, as jm Curley’s beer menu features more than 60 brews to choose from, including the chef’s private stock of Narragansett Cream and Genesee Cream Ale. Can’t decide? Just order a Manhattan or a hot toddy and save energy for more important debates, like deciding who has to carry the car home.
