New Spring Menu Items

Winter is taking its sweet time coming to an end, but we are already welcoming spring at The Poynt! We have substituted a few of our winter plates with new, fresh spring items, and we are so excited to share them with you! Here's a little taste of our spring additions:

Chicken Pesto Pizza- This new pizza is made with our famous flatbread. The chicken is poached in citrus, giving it a fresh flavor. A pesto base covers the flatbread topped with yellow peppers, tomatoes, carrots & fontina and parmesan cheeses.

Seared Cod Loin- For the spring we are introducing a new seafood dish. This Cod plate is served with champagne and english pea risotto, smoked baby carrots, a saffron buerre blanc and marcona almonds.

Brussel Sprout Salad- This salad is nothing like we have ever had before! It is made with roasted brussel sprouts and brussel petals as the base. Then, we top the brussel sprouts with pomegranate seeds, blue cheese crumbles, bacon, and toasted hazelnuts, tossed in a winter citrus vinaigrette.

Talk about mouth watering Spring options! All three items will be available every night during dinner service. The chicken pesto pizza and brussel sprout salad will have extended availability on our brunch menu, offered Saturday and Sunday 10-3pm. We hope to host you soon, and be sure to try some of our new favorite items for the upcoming season.

Happy Spring!

History of 31 Water Street

Do you know the history of our space? If not, read along for a taste of our building's past!

Before it became The Poynt, 31 Water Street was home to a hardware store. We pay tribute to this life in our exposed pipes on our booths foot rests, bar, host stand and in our ceilings. You also may find some industrial focused photographs hanging in our Wolfe's Den!  Next, 31 Water Street was a longtime Newburyport favorite men's clothing store, John Farley's. Farley's moved from Merrimack Street to 31 Water Street in the late 1990’s and was there for about 17 years.  They moved to State Street and re-opened in 2015, making way for The Poynt to open in town! To honor John Farley’s, we kept a portion of the brick wall logo just outside our Wolfe's Den. In addition, we covered the back of the booths with men's shirt plaid fabric and use chevron pattern flooring in our dining room as a compliment!

One of our favorite parts of Newburyport is the history and community of the buildings.  In our interior design strategy, we wanted to reserve the integrity of the building's history by incorporating nods to the space's past lives!
