New restaurant opens in revitalized Revere Beach

REVERE — Dryft, an Italian- and seafood-inspired restaurant, has opened on Revere Beach.

Created by restaurateur Michael Aldi, Dryft features a premium raw bar and classic New England seafood selections. Italian-influenced pasta dishes, steaks, poultry and fresh local vegetables complement the menu.

“We’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, and we are incredibly excited to celebrate the grand opening of Dryft,” Aldi said. “It’s a tremendous opportunity to be part of the nightlife scene in Revere and contribute to the dining options in this great community. We plan to become a central destination on Revere Beach for residents and visitors alike.”

The Dryft concept of “Miami meets Boston” is inspired by both the location along America’s oldest public beach as well as the premier living experience that’s been created at 500 Ocean Avenue, which is steps from the MBTA’s Wonderland stop on the Blue Line. The restaurant features seating for 140 and takes advantage of its location with an interior bar and seating facing the ocean. An additional 100 seats are planned for a large outdoor bar area to be added in 2020.

Dryft and 500 Ocean Avenue add to the growing momentum currently underway in Revere and along the Blue Line corridor, which includes the development of three new waterfront hotels, new luxury residential housing and other amenities. Boston-based Redgate — developers of 500 Ocean Avenue and One Beachmont — is also developing Ryder at 21 Revere Beach Blvd. and other properties along the MBTA Blue Line.
