The Charred Oak Tavern is the Whiskey-Centric Restaurant You’ve Been Waiting For

Fairhaven alums and long time whiskey fans Matthew and Michael Menard are taking their passion and turning it into restaurant in downtown Middleboro this spring.

Over many cocktail sessions with their chef, identical twins Michael & Matthew Menard along with their respective fiance, Sylvia Furtado, and wife Katrin came up with the vision for the Charred Oak Tavern  on Center Street in Downtown Middleboro.

The restaurant, which is inspired by oak barrels charred by the whiskey aging process, will have seating for 90, a bar with 16 stools, and a lot of reclaimed wood, oak barrels and barn doors. It will also feature a full menu with signature beef dishes, locally-caught seafood and of course, a distinctly selected assortment of Whiskeys, Scotches and Bourbons. They even made the long-haul to Iceland to visit one of their spirits’ distilleries – Floki. That’s dedication to finding the best there is, we think.

When asked if they planned on using their identical twin-ness to their advantage in possible sticky situations, they said they’ve been known to ‘pass the buck’ to the other but haven’t done much of that since high school. In tough times, however, they may loop in their triplet to diffuse a situation. The gang (pictured below) hope to have a soft opening by the end of April and be officially open in May.
