    Get fired up at Branch Line

    Brian Samuels

    What do pizza, poultry, and bocce have in common? Plenty on Tuesday, June 12, when Area Four parks its wood-fired mobile oven on Branch Line’s patio for a one-night-only “Cook With Fire” feast.

    Watertown’s Branch Line is known for rotisserie chicken and its cozy patio, complete with a bocce court. Area Four is known for its wood-fired pizza at locations in the South End and Kendall Square. At the pop-up, Area Four will make specials inspired by Branch Line’s menu, and Branch Line will make Area Four-inspired dishes. Think of it as the restaurant version of “Freaky Friday,” with Italian sports.

    Feast on smoked pork ribs, rotisserie buffalo chicken pizza with bacon blue cheese sauce, smoked cauliflower pizza, and steamed littleneck clams. Dinner lasts from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.


    Speaking of fire: The patio’s heated, so try to dine al fresco even if it’s chilly outside.

    Branch Line, 321 Arsenal St., Watertown, 617-420-1900
