When we first opened The Back Eddy, one of
our biggest challenges was: what to name the restaurant? What name would reflect our philosophy & cooking style? The name
itself actually came from a dear friend of ours who defined a “back eddy” as current that runs counter clockwise
to the mainstream. This defines our restaurant perfectly: A seafood restaurant that does things a little bit differently.
Our mission is to promote eating locally produced product. We feel fortunate to be located at the center of so many food traditions.
This area enjoys a rich heritage of working people growing, raising,& catching food, as well as preparing it with a mix
of culinary traditions.
The ultra fresh produce from the many farms of
Southeastern Massachusetts & Coastal Rhode Island; the wide variety of fish brought to shore
by New England’s Fisherman; wine, beer, & cheese from local artisan producers & the mixture of Portuguese influence
with the oldest American cooking style, provides our kitchen with an incredibly diverse range to work with. We are excited
to help our community sustain growth by providing our local farmers & fisherman a place to showcase their talents. With
our concept of thinking coastal & eating local we can provide you, our guests, with the freshest food in the area. Hence
our name and why it is so important to us. We thank the best staff on the planet, our guests and our suppliers, for helping
to support our vision.
