If you're looking for subtlety and beauty in a special meal, this is your place. The drama is subdued, but there's plenty to observe, appreciate, and savor. For example, we went Valentine's week, and every dish had a small nod to red, white, or pink without being overstated. Probably the most special moment for me was getting to taste an American chestnut. I had read for years that they are much sweeter and more flavorful than European ones, and now I can say that's true. The entire restaurant feels like a labor of love.
Chef Bond has created a true culinary Nirvana. Every aspect of the dining experience was superb.
Delicious meal. Enjoyed every course. While nothing in particularly amazed me. Everything was excellent and creative. Highly suggest for a special occasion.
Wonderful food, perfect service. Charming ambience, love the fireplace. Elegant without being pretentious.
Top notch in every conceivable way. A vision executed to perfection with what appeared to be effortless grace. Pampered sans pomposity. Could keep raving, such a perfect dining experience.
Lovely fixed menu restaurant in East Cambridge.
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and wish the service staff could acknowledge with a candle or somethinf
Every course on the prix fix was delicious. And knowing it is locally sourced makes it even better and we didn't leave too stuffed! The ambiance is cozy and it is easy to talk with your dining companions in a normal voice (not true in all restaurants these days.) But since this is a prix fix restaurant it is important for diners to take a look at the menu ahead of time and communicate with the restaurant if any of your party has diet restrictions. They will accommodate changes but advance notice makes it easier.
Excellent smoked duck with charred eggplant purée - sounds weird but it was delicious
