We enjoyed a great Sunday
We enjoyed a great Sunday brunch in this wonderful Newton Centre spot. I had been here before for dinner which was very good, and was pleasantly surprised that they also have a great bruch menu. When you want to avoid the Sunday rush (and lines) at the nearby diners, check out B Street. It's quiet and mellow. A much nicer experience! The smoked salmon pop up (hope I got that right) was absolutely fantastic!!

Great small spot often overlooked
I do very much enjoy this "little" spot in Newton Centre with extremely well prepared and very tasty dishes. I had a wonderful chicken salad sandwich and a 1/2 portion of a truly magnificent caesar salad. The chicken salad, is to die for (I know, its just a chicken salad sandwich, but trust me). I was up-charged reasonably for the caesar and would have gladly paid even more for the 1/2 portion. Topped off with a nice glass of one of my favorite cabernets, this lunch was delightful! SUBSEQUENT TO THIS MEAL, I RETURNED TO THE RESTAURANT AND ASKED FOR THE SAME 2 ITEMS FOR LUNCH AND WAS TOLD BY A VERY POLITE YOUNG MAN AT THE BAR THAT HALF SALADS WERE NO LONGER OFFERED. HE RECHECKED AT MY REQUEST, SO I CANCELLED MY ORDER AND LEFT. WILL MISS IT.

Book Club Find
Six of us met at B Street instead of our usual book club meeting at someone's home. They were very accommodating to this large group even though the place is on the smaller side. Very nice atmosphere, good selection of appetizers and salads. Our waitress was very knowledgeable on the wine choices. The general manager was very attentive to everything going on. We even found time to discuss the book. All around great experience.

This is a wonderful spot for inventive sandwiches and larger fine dishes. The wines by the glass have always been good, which is one way to assess the general interest in management in making one happy. I once again had the chicken salad sandwich with apple and walnuts et al. Definitely not your grandma's chicken salad. Just delicious. I highly recommend this spot to Newtonites and to those in the environs for a great meal every time (so far) !

Cozy upscale spot in Newton
Cozy upscale spot in Newton Centre creates special and inventive sandwiches for lunch in a relaxing atmosphere. I return frequently. Try the Chicken Salad sandwich with apples and nuts...very special for just a sandwich!

A fun and friendly little bistro
I met my wife and infant son here for lunch. We arrived early to a fairly empty restaurant and a friendly welcome by the staff. The servers and hostess were attentive but not over-bearing, and the food dishes ware spaced well enough that we didn't feel rushed but were done with our meal in a timely order. The quite, empty setting that we were greeted by changes quickly, and by the time our food arrived the dinning room was busy with lively chatter and an energetic ambiance. Despite this, our infant son slept through the entire meal which allowed us to have a rather enjoyable experience.

Brunch was relaxing and the food was fresh and well prepared. Not crazy about walking through the restuarant to get to the hostess stand........ Servers are young, but have a pleasant approach.

Great cozy spot
B Street offers a wonderfully eclectic menu, with some seasonal selections. I recommend highly the squash and goat cheese salad as a starter. It is large enough to split. We ordered the duck which was cooked to perfection. The pastry chef prepares a special dessert each evening. The night we were there it was a filo dough with chocolate and pistachio mousse- so light and delicious! I would definitely go to B Street again.

Great little spot
We arrived on a relatively slow evening. The restaurant was only about one quarter full. Our waitress was very prompt and kept things moving. Salads arrived quickly. My mushroom bolognese was excellent and was my partner's stuffed trout. The prices are a bit steep but the quality of the food was worth it. We also purchased a gift card for some friends at the same time. We'd have no trouble recommending this place to others.

Great Newton Center lunch spot
I went to B Street for lunch with a business colleague in October 2013. This was my first visit. I loved the beanless turkey chili, served in a crock with warm cornbread on the side. My college had warm apple cider (with cinnamon stick) and a cheddar cheese sandwich on challah with avocado. The challah was fluffy and really made the sandwich. Our server was attentive, and let us linger over tea. This is a small restaurant with a nice, no-fuss ambience. I would return again for lunch or dinner. My only complaint is that, during winter, the seats near the front door are probably a bit chilly, even with the curtain around the entrance.

Unusual and excellent ways of combining and presenting food. Caesar salad with sof boiled egg on top. Tuna tartar appetizer with something called tuna poki.

Great Place in Newton Center
We have come to B Street Restaurant and Bar several times. Each time we have been very pleased with the experience. This is genuinely a "neighborhood gem". The food is always delicious and presented very well Most recently, I had the Butternut Squash Bisque for starters. I have ordered this before and love it - they include an apple element, which gives the taste extra depth, as well as (I think) some roasted seeds, which gives it a bit of a crunch. Yum! Then I had the trout main dish. They provided a robustly sized fish was baked perfectly, and presented amidst the vegetables. Delicious and pretty. The pecan pie was for desert - this was also delicious. I would highly recommend people coming here.

Must try the popover for brunch!!
We went for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is small and was about half full. I had popover with scrambled eggs and salmon in it. It is very unusual to find popovers , and it was delicious. Big potions too. Had a champagne cocktail with lemon and chartreuse in it that was the perfect mix of sweet and sour. My husband had a burger with an egg on it on an English muffin which he loved. Yummy

This is a great neighborhood
This is a great neighborhood restaurant. We showed up early for our 6:30 reservation and were seated at our leisure. We noticed the restaurant had filled up but we weren't rushed out of our table. The food was great - from the salmon to the scallops to the tuna - we enjoyed everything.

The food was wonderful, the wait staff friendly and helpful. I was dining with old friends I seldom see, and they let us stay talking for a long time after dinner..
