The much favored Rice Garden, in Brookline's Washington Sq., is now, sad to say, a glory of the past. It's been replaced, unfortunately, by a rather run of the mill operation -- something on the order of Panda or Penquin House.
The last time we were at Rice Garden I left our phone number and they promised to call and tell us where their talented cook would next be working. Unfortunately, no call yet. Was wondering if any Rice Garden followers know where he is now. Worth a fairly long trip, in my opinion.
