About Events with Porcupine and Bear
Porcupine and Bear was founded in 2017. We are a multi-generational run family-style restaurant located in the heart of Boston.Our menu is made up of family recipes hailing from Portugal, Ireland, and France. Everything we serve is made from scratch with most meals being made to order. Family recipes include chicken marsala, si pout, queijadas, and Nana Pricilla's lemon meringue pie. Pull up a chair at one of our long tables, grab a carafe of red sangria, and make new friends among the other guests. Kids are welcome in the main dining room where they get their own menu that includes elevated kid-friendly favorites: Corn dogs, mac and cheese, DIY pizza, and more.We offer three private dining spaces: Priscilla's Tea Room, Tony's Lounge, and a full restaurant buyout. We have thrown parties of all sizes and experiences. Host your next anniversary dinner in a romantic candle-lit alcove set for two, or celebrate the joining of two families with a bridal shower in our tea room or a holiday work party in the lounge. Having a larger party? Don't worry — we can accommodate up to 400 people with a full restaurant buyout.Connect with our event manager who will be happy to provide a tour of the spaces and work with you to create an event that exceeds expectations.
The lounge is located on the bottom floor of the restaurant and has a much more masculine vibe and decor. The lounge has leather couches, long tables for family-style dining, and alcoves allowing for more intimate conversations. The lounge menu is completely customizable to the needs of your event. Work with the head chef directly to compose the menu of your dreams.
