We had a lovely dinner this weekend at Fare, located at 2028 Fairmount Avenue.

It is very attractive - best looking place in the neighborhood. And the food was delicious!

The menu is interesting and creative, and the execution matches.

I had the soft-shell crab appetizer, which was a special, and it was one of the best preparations I've ever had. Our entrees, among the four of us, were steak, pork, and chicken - all excellent.

It was difficult making choices; everything was enticing. You can view the menu online and see what I mean. A friend told me she had the crabcake with avocado and it was wonderful.

Prices are moderate.

Only negatives, for us: no bread served, and the music was too loud. The noise level wasn't terrible, but we would have liked a bit less

This is definitely a return-to place.
