A 7-foot piano is the centerpiece of this new restaurant in Downtown Crossing. Set on Temple Place, Hobgoblin merges music and food in a magical venue, formerly Stoddard’s. Following suite of Chef Ginger Phomjun’s work at sister restaurant, Mad Monkfish, Hobgoblin will bring tantalizing Thai bites in sweet, small, sticky forms to this dark and mysterious hangout.
Just like Jazz is the staple ensemble and key experience of dinner at Mad Monkfish, Hobgoblin will soon install a glistening piano at the heart of its venue. Live classical hits will become an integral part of the multi-sensory experience at Hobgoblin.
What’s on the menu at Hobgoblin Boston?
In addition to the side of piano, guests can enjoy the Thai-inspired menu. The Pomelo Salad is perfectly refreshing for the summer heat, incorporating pomelo fruit, toasted coconut, crsipy garlic and onion, cilantro, cashews, tamarind juice, and prik pao into a perfectly balanced and incredibly textured plate.
The steamed mussels feature wild ginger and basil and a classic Massaman curry gets a twist with braised lamb shank as the hero ingredient. It’s a lovely plate to cozy up with on a rainy day.
Hobgoblin offers a slew of other bites in addition to desserts to close your meal on the right key! The piano schedule will be announced soon, with rotating talent and themes on the horizon.
Hobgoblin is the brainchild of restauranteur, Jamme Chantler, who also owns Mad Monkfish, formerly Thelonious Monkfish. Chantler notes Hobgoblin is inspired by a subterranean cavern below Yester Castle in Scotland and his lineage from Salem witches.
