It was just myself and my son at Akame Nigire and Sake, so that's why it was on the quieter side. We loved the food! Each course was so elegant and creative. We watched each item get made, were told about the ingredients and could ask any questions - was an experience as much as delicious food!!

We frequent the taverna once or twice a week. Whether it’s for cocktails or dinner(or both!), we are always welcomed warmly, the food is 100% consistently excellent visit to visit and it feels so much like the tavernas we visit in Greece. Excellent chefs, excellent staff. Live music on Thursday evenings! What are you waiting for?

Loved two (2) out of the (3) appetizers we ordered. The bacon wrapped stuffing and crab bao were phenomenal dishes. Please always serve those dishes. The shrimp and crab dip was okay; felt it was mayo-heavy. Overall very good and enjoyed our drinks as well.

About the restaurant
Named after our beloved grandfather, we are a small family-owned establishment built on a commitment to making every patron that walks through our doors feel they are at home. Our approach, in addition to supplying friendly and attentive service, is to take the traditional Italian cuisine that our family grew up eating and elevate it to something new and fresh.

We had an excellent meal and service. I loved my chicken marsala and our appetizer of mussels were so tasty. We called to tell that we were going to be late because of a bus fire and street closing and they saved our table. The dessert of creme brulee was so good. Servce was also very good. We will return. Thank you.

About the restaurant
dbar is a full service restaurant that seamlessly transforms into a nightclub and lounge as the night goes on. Formally an old school Irish pub filled with mahogany charm, dbar has been renovated into a hip chic hot spot. With warm glowing candles & long leather banquettes, dbar offers a casual and comfortable atmosphere that attracts clientele from Dorchester and surrounding areas. The unique and classy menu inspired by Executive Chef Christopher Coombs changes with the seasons and features the finest and freshest available ingredients throughout the New England area. Most of the menu takes a French twist, but also contains an assortment of comfort foods (such as our famous Veal & Pancetta Bolognaise) and old favorites (like our simple yet delicious Giannone Chicken Under a Brick.)
