7/22/09 Radius: THIS is "one of Boston's Best"? I don't think so.

Handsome, quiet ,elegant room. Knowledgable, helpful attractive staff. Unfortunately, the bottom line is that the food is neither wonderful or justifiably priced. NINETEEN dollars for a teensy tiny soft shell crab on a few tablespoons of jerusalem artichoke puree????(I actually have never seen a softshell this tiny. When I grew up in Va.it was illegal to keep softshells this size. Perhaps they are farmed now in Asia.) Because this was our first Radius visit, we wanted to try a number of things and we did. Out of 8 dishes, including apps, entrees and dessert, there was not one "WOW!" Not one. Everything tasted good, was presented nicely, was child-portioned. The best thing all night was the sorbets, which were delicious.

I'm guessing that "you shoulda been there when...." is the operative truism here.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda, the best players on our team.
