Beacon Street Tavern, Beacon Hill Bistro

MC Slim JB | Jul 13, 2007 07:58 AM

Had a decent meal on the patio at Beacon Street Tavern before a recent Sox game. A well-made cocktail, tasty if somewhat pricey ($5) "sliders". Cheeseburger and whole shrimp sliders were better than the sausage/pepper one; all would have benefited from better rolls, which were about "supermarket on-premise bakery" quality. Excellent sweet potato fries, good shoestring fries. Not sure this will displace Audubon in my heart for pre-Sox, but better than my previous experience shortly after it opened. The pleasant, spacious patio is probably its chief virtue. The food seems a sharp step down from sibling Washington Square Bistro.

Very disappointing breakfast at the Beacon Hill Bistro, a place I quite like at dinner (and whose current chef I was pleased to see get a rave in today's Herald). Cooked-through poached eggs (sent back, properly done the second time), a chicken hash of big slices of marinated chicken breast with cubes of crispy fried potatoes and slices of red pepper, a stretch on my idea of hash, and just not very good. Service was well-meaning but kind of hapless, and the whole experience seemed endless given the 3/4-empty dining room. A frustrating waste of $15 inclusive, the first bad meal I've had here at any time of day.
