The food, service and moderate noise level were superb at Brassica. Only parking is a challenge, so leave enough time. But definitely try it if you like delicious food.

I have only given one restaurant 5 stars before. I have meaning to try this place which close to where I live. I love tasting menus and usually go to downtown Boston. What a great tasting menu along with a wine pairing for 1/2 the price I pay at a high end place downtown. The staff was very knowledgeable and gave us suburb service. Thank you for such a great night out.

I loved everything except the extreme garlic! Worst garlic "hangover" ever. We had the tasting menu and found it a good value and imaginative, but I would have appreciated a break from the Asian fusion flavors and, in particular, the garlic. Just too much! Wonderful server. Great staff.

This place continues to turn out creative and excellent food.
Hits tonight: Sweetbreads, Elk & Duck meatballs, Sablefish
The rest: Fried rice great but go easy on the heat, BK.Bolognese pasta a bit underdone or just chewy
Nothing wrong w the doughnuts either, and the Koji ice cream freebee was very interesting
Service first rate too! Will return as soon as the wallet recovers.

Brassica Kitchen is my favorite restaurant in Boston.
You can sense the excitement about the food and wine that this place churns out.
The food is so original, bold, and innovative, but ALWAYS consistently delicious. Heavy emphasis on the transformation of foods (fermentation, curing, pickling, aging, etc...), but it is done in a beautiful way with a whole lot of finesse.
Additionally the staff is so energetic and cool. They all genuinely seem so passionate about the food, drinks, and experience.
I highly recommend the tasting menus.
The Valentine's day menu was mind blowing, and so was the menu this last weekend (Koji-cultured butter-parm-risotto; halibut cheeks; bolognese; thai salad; olives & jamon...) amazing!
In between nice dinners for special occasions, we've had the Fried Chicken sandwich on weekends for brunch. One of the best fried chicken sandwiches ever. Spicy and delicious!
Highly recommend this place to anyone!

I love this place. The food is exquisite, blending intense contrasting flavors and playing with a combination of textures. I love bold flavors and this play doesn’t shy away. The service is always top notch. It’s amazing food in the least pretentious way, which is the best of both worlds for me. I’ve gone with our kids and for a date night and the experiences were both great.

The place is small, a bit dark, with candles on the tables, and overall charming. The staff is high energy, like they're high on something, but very friendly and competent. The menu is rather small, and a bit hard to make sense of, if only because they use unusual ingredients, which is perhaps what makes the food interesting. The plates are small, tapas style, and mostly tasty. We liked the pork dish and the risotto the best. A pleasant evening, not cheap, though.

The food and glass wine choices here are excellent. Great and various flavors. The only meh dish was the pop up noodle bowl, which was unexciting when compared to their own menu items. I love the easy atmosphere, the friendly, informed service, and the sweet and generous chefs.

Dinner at Brassica was a true delight of a culinary experience. This week's menu featured Japanese fusion inspired dishes and we enjoyed every bite. We started our evening with perfect cocktails. Highlights of our meal included the yam bun, which I think was a milk bun with delicious filling and topped with hollandaise; the koji risotto - so simple, and so perfect; and the roast pork dish which included pickled oranges- the perfect mix of tang and sweet. For dessert we had the brown sourdough which was topped with fancy cheddar and sugar. Let me tell you this : whoever decided that bread can be a dessert is my freaking hero. It was perfect in every way.

Brassica provides a thrilling adventure in fermentation-based food. Every dish is complex in texture and flavors and unlike anything you've had before. We ordered the chef's choice and then we complicated the problem by having two vegetarians. But Jeremy, the cheerful and enormously competent chef, took on the challenge and sent seven distinctly different and utterly delicious dishes to our table, along with a complimentary bonus dish for the one member of our party who eats meat. Of the seven, only the creamy risotto and the dessert, which involved a donut and fermented cherries, were immediately recognizable. But every item was spectacular. We were delighted by the food and by the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.
