Wednesday special: 3 course meal for $35.00. Four choices in each category. My starter, the charcuterie plate was grand, with a yummy chunky rabbit pate and some excellent pork salamis of various kinds. The Greek olive oil served with the bread was a lovely peppery fruity oil and the Nebbiolo we drank was a fine choice and well-priced (most wines stay at $40.00 a bottle on the list). Spouse had an excellent turnip soup, not overly sweet as with so many winter bisques, and the little amuse bouche was a hot celery soup shooter. We each had the trout with buckwheat and broccoli which was a beautiful dish and so generous we will be eating the second half of it for lunch today. I had a burnt sugar almond cake with smoked vanilla ice cream for desert (came darn near to licking the plate) and spouse had a good though I think more predictable flourless chocolate with thai basil ice cream. Friends with us had the two fish starter which they loved and the adobo rubbed skirt steak which they also loved. Service was friendly and professional and the meal was not only excellent but a bargain at the price. I have been here before but not in a while (we are lucky in Boston to have so many good options and my neighborhood draws me back to the local places we can walk to) but this was an exceptional meal at an exceptional value, so we'll be putting them back on the regular rotation. How nice to see their quality hold up even as they expand. I understand they are opening a place in Newton soon as well. So far, from my limited experience, they haven't lost a step in quality.
