Q&A: Peter Ungár of Tasting Counter
Boston Harbor Distillery
Cocktail of the Week: Gretchen Weiners
Native Texan Peter Ungár began working in restaurants during high school and attended BU’s hospitality program before interning at Boston’s The Four Seasons. In 2003 he launched a private dining service, The Dining Alternative, to replicate the fine dining experience in residential settings. After a stint at two Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris, Ungár returned stateside to open his own restaurant, Tasting Counter, in 2015. The 20-seat gastronomic gem, set in the same building as Somerville’s Aeronaut Brewery, offers ticketed, multicourse dinners that showcase its head chef’s relentless culinary curiosity.
Boston’s best dish:
Whatever I don’t have to cook.
Guilty pleasure food:
I could eat chips and guac for days.
I don’t listen to music while I cook.
Favorite food destination:
Whenever I have time off, I am often in Allston.
I like transforming food into something our guests enjoy … and the impending tuition bills for my four kids
