With map in hand, we found our way from JP to Bowdoin St. and finally tried Cesaria after a friend saying she'd been going constantly. And she was right, nothing was more than $12 on the menu, that was some shrimp scampi dish. I didn't really study the menu since I knew I wanted seafood altho I saw some typical meat plates with fried eggs for about $9 and a few stew type dishes for $7.95. Good rolls w/ butter patties. My friend went with grilled octopus that I heard was great but seemed a little overdone to me. It could have been anything grilled under the char but it was okay w/ a lot of rice, potato (boiled I think) and salad. I went with the seafood casserole that had a more yellow rice with little bits of squid, mussel, shrimp and conch. Or so they advertised but the seafood was cut up quite small so some of the pieces were hard to tell exactly what they were. It was only $8.25 and both of us have leftovers. The place is pretty w/ yellow walls and quite good sized, but only about 10 other people were there. The food took a little while coming out but we weren't in a rush and the service was nice. We then found our way to the Polish American Club not far from Polonia which we'll try when the weather gets cooler.
