Had dinner there 2 weeks ago, and had been meaning to post.
Beet Salad - Oh well, another beet salad
Pea soup - Truly delicious
Shrimp salad - oh well shrimp salad
The two salads were very nicely executed, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Steak - Fine rendition
Flounder - Very Nice
Plantain Gnocchi - Clunky, odd texture/flavor combo, would not order it again.
Dessert - Panna Cotta and sherbet. Texture on the Panna Cotta was a bit too gelatinous. Would not order it again, and I LOVE panna cotta.
Service - Very good, almost TOO attentive.
Honestly, a delightful place, helpful staff, good food. But nothing really shined for me. There was not a single morsel in the whole meal, with the possible exception of the pea soup, where I felt, WOW, I have to eat this again.
Certainly better than Dali across the street which I generally dislike.
A nice addition to the scene, but in my book, another higher end place with not that much to distinguish it from a dozen others in Boston area. The night I was there, which was a Wednesday, it was 80% empty even when we left (after an early dinner) at about 7:45, which should be prime dining hour. I am concerned for the future of this place. I will add that the one other night I was in that neighborhood on a week night I poked my head in the door (also about 6:30) and it was 3/4 empty. This was over a month ago...
