Alva Restaurant near Pru Center

Tried the restaurant in the new Indigo hotel, near the Pru Center. A bit amazed at the menu- had all of the buzz words- La Frieda beef, Mast chocolate, Balthazar baked goods. A welcome addition to the neighborhood! First- the service was excellent- waitstaff was personable and attentive. That being said, the place was not exactly buzzing so it wasn't a true test. Ordered the burger. It was cooked more than I had hoped and wasn't in any way funky- which I would have liked. Fries were delicious. I didn't like the onion jam that came with it- thankfully on the side. Overall though, this is a great alternative to many of the other places in the area $13 for a hotel restaurant burger is reasonable and I will be back. Hopefully, this will be the go to place for breakfast in the neighborhood.
