Tried this new place on Washington St. a couple blocks from Mass Ave. My meal was quite good, one friend was pretty happy with his and one gave it only a 1.75 out of 5. It's a really nice room across from a park, cute bar area, nice bartender and servers. It was pretty dead for 8:30 on a Fri. tho (as it was the previous Sat. when we walked by). We had two green and one heirloom tomato salad to start which took way too long to come out, they're just salads. Munched on the very good bread and olive oil. I had hanger steak w/ green beans and little bits of potato cake w/ bacon. The steak was done less than medium as usual but it was very good. One person got lamb and the 1.75 person got gnocchi which were the weirdest style gnocchi I've ever seen. More like mini potato pancakes. Tasty tho. Two of us split a blackberry/peach cobbler w/ vanilla ice cream that was too hot and not enough crust (I love my crust) but very good. Chocolate souffle with espresso sauce was pretty good. Salads were $8 and $10, entrees $17-25, dessert $7. Not sure why this place isn't as happening as all the other spots on the revamped Wash. St., we'll see if it catches on.
