Sasso: wine special, an Isole e Olena Supertuscan, was $22/glass. Contorni, $8 a pop.
o ya: holy crap.
When did EVERY OTHER restaurant in Boston come to offer the sort of splurge you'd be paying for for months to come? Since when has EVERY OTHER restaurant been a place mere mortals can't set foot in? How am I just now noticing this? (Perhaps because I'm broke...)
By contrast, POPS: How are they going to pull those prices off? I hope they can; the food I had there was every bit as good as at Sasso, with quite a bit more wine, for half the price. (The Cobb salad wasn't really a Cobb, but the flavors were lovely. Where the coconut bread pudding erred a tad in texture, it compensated in flavor. But the food at Sasso showed flaws too--a bit of oversalting, something I generally never notice.)
