The sweet potato pie was a standout. The pig's head was tasty, with a perfectly crisp coating which went divinely with the poached egg. The fettucine was okay but not my favorite. The server was very friendly and helpful. The staff is exceptional at this restaurant.

I have been going to this neighborhood gem for more than a decade, first when it was on Beacon Street and now at its location in Kendall Square and it never fails to surprise and impress me. I usually have the Chinese Box, a delectable tower of mustard shrimp, Hoisin beef, cashews, cole slaw, broccoli and rice layered and turned out from its Chinese take-out box so the sauces seep through its layers, but this time I also had a roasted pumpkin with a mole and cabbage slaw that was perfectly balanced between heat and spice. The duck confit salad is a favorite too. The ambiance is modern--stainless semi-open kitchen and wood tables. It can get loud but there are quieter spots so request one if you want conversation. We arrived at 5 and by the time we left, it was full.

The place feels a bit dated but is nice and lowkey for a networking dinner. We ended up with only 6 of our 7 guests showing, which I mentioned a few times but the extra place setting was never taken away which was a little odd. We were not asked if we wanted another round of drinks. But we were speedily brought our one late order for our late guest, and they happily split the bill six ways. They did not rush us and gave us space to chat. The food was just ok but something for everyone, and various price points.

We had the rabit confit, haddock and filet mignon.

I'm quite a foodie, and everything was amazing and prepared perfectly.
