The Haven To Host Traditional Burns Suppers
The local haunt celebrates the legacy of Scottish poet Robert Burns.
Jamaica Plain’s Scottish restaurant will take part in a tradition from Scotland this month.
The Haven will host four Burns Suppers, a tradition that celebrates the life of Scottish poet Robert Burns with festive music, food, dance and drink, each night between Jan. 25 and 28, according to a press release Monday. Each all-inclusive supper will be $60.
The traditional Burns supper includes three courses, a welcome cocktail and the piping in of the Haggis - a tradition in which everyone in the room stands while the chef brings in the haggis as bagpipes play - along with song and dance.
"Each year the event has grown bigger and better," said Chef Terri Montilio in the statement.
The Haven opened on Perkins Street in 2010, and according to the statement, it is the only Scottish-based establishment in Boston.
Burns suppers are typically held on or near the poet’s Jan. 25 birthday.
