Strip T’s - I read about chef Tim Maslow in the July 4-24, 2012 issue of Improper Bostonian’s “Boston’s Best 2012: Food + Drink” List (page 76). He was dubbed “rising star.” Yes indeed. Thank you Improper Bostonian. You did me right… You did us all right… Yummy yummy yummy. Great food and atmosphere. Casual yet chic and fine quality food. Japanese eggplant banh mi (crispy tofu, pickles, cilantro) was to DIE FOR! You’ll love it.
Park Restaurant and Bar - Neighborhood: Harvard Square. all the food, wine, and service quality of a fine dining establishment, but without any pretentiousness. The atmosphere is the perfect blend of cool and trendy (lighting, chalk boards, friendly staff), classy and upscale (highly knowledgable, cleanly dressed staff with just the right amount of formality, quality food and wine selection), and casual/comfortable. I can see this place attracting all types of clientele – which is a great thing!
FireBrand Saints - Neighborhood: Kendall Square. Mezze Bar (three for $12) I chose carrot puree (was like dessert) and whipped celery root – both fab. With all the start ups (a.k.a. still low on funds) in the Cambridge Innovation Center at One Broadway, this hip, trendy restaurant with quality food at very reasonable prices is perfectly situated for professional, classy wining and dining. Bravo!
Salty Pig - Neighborhood: Back Bay. Pig + Cheese = charcuterie. What more do I have to say?!
Sam’s – Neighborhood: Waterfront. Sam’s is a hidden gem – in fact the folks who took me here will kill me if they see this! Located RIGHT on the waterfront with great views of Boston Harbor.
The Barking Crab - Neighborhood: Waterfront. The Barking Crab has a super chill vibe of picnic tables, open air, and live music. The seafood is delish!
