Cook in Newtonville

Made a first visit to Cook for brunch on Saturday with SO and daughter. Called ahead for an 11 AM rez, but probably unnecessary as there were only 3 other tables occupied when we arrived. It was starting to fill when we left a bit after noon, though. Sampled the shrimp taco - fried, but light and delicate - and the lobster slider - a bit more mayonnaise than I prefer, but on a nice brioche mini-bun. I had the smoked salmon Benedict, a generous portion with tangy chive hollandaise. SO had the hash, also a generous portion with house made corned beef than was not overly salty, a plus. Sampled a couple of brunch cocktails; fresh squeezed juices provided a solid base. Service was solicitous, but still learning the ropes. Looking forward to a return trip for dinner. A great addition to the neighborhood.
