Stopped by Audubon Circle for some pre Sox game nourishment Friday. For some reason I always forget about this place when I'm in the area. I'm so happy I remembered it on Friday. The room is really pleasant with painted brick, high ceilings, rich wood, and lava rock bar. It was very relaxing. A nice change from my usual Fenway trip to Beerworks.
I had the hot pressed green apple, brie, and watercress sandwich ($7). My friend had the rib eye ($14). My sandwich was heavenly. The white bread was very thinly sliced, as was the apple. There was a generous amount of brie and just the right amount of crunchy watercress. It was so good! If you like grilled/pressed sandwiches this one is a real treat. It was served with a simple fresh green salad with a dijon dressing. The dressing had a really nice bite and complimented the rich sweet sandwich perfectly. I had a bite of the rib eye as well and it was great, served with a blue cheese butter, grilled bread, and asparagus.
I'm looking forward to going again. I thought the prices were very reasonable. When i go again I have to try the white bean spread with bread. People on both sides of us ordered this and it looked really good, and it's only $4. Looked like a serious deal. My only complaint is that draft beer is served in 12 oz. glasses rather than a pint. The price is okay ($4) but I would have preferred something like $4.50 for a whole pint. Pitchers are served for thirsty folks.
