Our restaurant, AS220 FOO(D) helps create the casual but always lively community gathering place found at AS220’s Empire Street complex. The open kitchen, counter service establishment serves a single seasonal menu and up to a half dozen creative specials daily during lunch and dinner hours, Tuesday through Saturday.

AS220 FOO(D) works with local New England farms and food artisans to create fresh seasonal menu items and daily specials, in so far as availability and cost allow. AS220 FOO(D) serves up a fresh and constantly changing menu that includes a great selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes. Profits from the restaurant go to supporting the organization’s not-for-profit work.

FOO(D) is Open: Tuesday – Saturday:  12:00pm – 10pm

The Bar at AS220 not only shares space with AS220 FOO(D) at 115 Empire Street, but shares a mission – to offer quality, locally-sourced seasonal products at the fairest possible price. Managed by Wayne Gonsalves, The Bar at AS220 serves beer, wine and spirits from over two dozen New England breweries and distilleries; offering patrons twelve constantly-rotating beers on tap, house-infused liquors made with fresh, local fruits and vegetables, herbs, spices and teas, and seasonal specialty cocktails. Profits from The Bar at AS220 protect the open and unjuried booking policy of the AS220 Galleries and the 115 Empire Street Performance Space.

The Bar is Open: Tuesday – Friday:  4pm – 1am and Saturday: 4pm – 2am
