Nautilus Pier 4 offers fans of the Nantucket hot spot a stunning, spacious mainland experience in Boston’s Seaport District. The Workshop/APD team took cues from the restaurant’s modern fusion menu for its interior architecture and interior design, creating a sophisticated journey from Japan’s vibrant street food scene to the ocean’s depths. This modern jewel box features a bold palette of aquatic jewel tones, warm metal and wood accents, and striking graphic murals and wallpaper – a dramatic departure from traditional New England seafood restaurants.
Does the warming weather already have you itching for a summertime ACK escape? You can set your sights on Boston’s Seaport, where one of the most highly anticipated restaurant openings of spring has finally arrived: Nautilus Pier 4, an urbane answer to Nantucket’s island-cool Nautilus, opened on Thursday, April 1.— Scott Kearnan, Boston Magazine
“The restaurant has several different atmospheric zones that create a micro experience within one larger restaurant, one that really speaks to the diversity of the food, and the experiences the owners want their clientele to have.”— Andrew Kotchen, Workshop/APD
The main dining room treads into more formal waters, with its deep green upholstered banquettes and vintage blue leather schoolhouse chairs.— Nathan Tavares, Eater Boston
