We were so impressed. We ate in the garden, which was lovely - we could hear birds chirping and the setting is serene, a nice break from busy Edgartown or Oak Bluffs. We ordered a carrot salad and a lamb pastry on phyllo, and then a steak special and local sea bass. Everything was delicious - interesting flavors, perfectly cooked and satisfying portions. The meal was not fixed price, which we expected. We ordered chocolate cake and crème brûlée for dessert - the basil crème brûlée was the star, one of the top 3 desserts I’ve ever had. On a warmer day I would sit inside, which looked like a lovely space. We did notice a mosquito or two outside, but it was worth the nice setting. Service was also professional and friendly, we were impressed all around.

This is a truly great restaurant! The food is on the highest level of taste and imagination. If this was in NY it would probably be twice as expensive and not nearly as good. I've had the quail with rhubarb and it's out of this world and I just had the shrimp and gnocchi and couldn't believe how good it was . So lucky to have Fat Hen in Somerville!

This was my third visit to Dewey's, the second for brunch. We were a raucous group, and the servers were patient and lovely to us. Trey, the chef, came out personally to say hello and ask how one of the dishes was (and FYI: it was DELICIOUS). If I could eat here every week, I would do so. Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous ambiance.

Came after a show at the Boston Opera on a Wednesday and this was one of the few places open for dinner and we’re so glad we came! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the host and our server was lovely. We had the burger and oxtail Rasta pasta, which were reasonably priced for Downtown Boston and they were delicious! The oxtail was so tender and well-proportioned. Not a single crumb was left! Loved the mix of 90s/00s r&b and the volume was perfect- loud enough to vibe and sing along but still able to have a conversation and not have to shout like at other places. Highly recommend!

About the restaurant
Park 54 Restaurant and Lounge is a small black-owned business in Hyde Park, MA. "Park 54" is inspired by the life and service of the men who served in the 54th Regiment - a volunteer infantry comprised of free Black American male soldiers. The regiment was established in Readville, MA, now known as "Hyde Park." Despite the backlash the men received for fighting in a "white man's war" each bravely risked their lives for the freedom and betterment of their families, community, and country.

Our mission is to continue the legacy of the historical 54th Regiment. We have created a safe haven where our beloved community of Hyde Park and the neighboring towns, can experience the freedom, happiness, and fullness of self-expression the 54th Regiment fought for. Having only been open for less than a year, we have already accomplished this by offering great food, innovative libations, incredible music, compelling historical artifacts, and an inviting ambiance!

From the moment we were created by the bubbly and friendly barkeepers and server, our experience was delightful and delicious. Mastery mixed drinks, which we both thoroughly enjoyed. The coconut shrimp appetizer was delicious. The chowdah was full of flavor and clams. Thick enough for my spoon to stand up but no floury- pasty taste. Just how I like it! Crispy coconut enveloping perfectly cooked and tasty plump shrimp. We split the chicken sandwich on cranberry bread, aioli, brie, and arugula. A cape cod taste sensation. The menu had something for every taste. Including a few vegan meals. A great experience. We'll be back!

After 28 years we present you India with a fresh new look, a creative menu offering a blend of contemporary and traditional favorites, a new kitchen & team elevating our food and service, and elegant lighting transforming the entire restaurant. Enjoy our Garden Bar and Patio in the summer and cozy fireplace seating in the winter.

America is a melting pot like India was over a 1000 years ago. Being in the US offers a chef a lot of exciting possibilities to play with the ingredients that are not commonly found in India. We are availing these opportunities to create an exciting menu that has a blend of traditional favorites like Chicken Tikka Masala and creative dishes like Bengal Fish Curry (made with Salmon that is not usually found in India). The goal is to present a creative, fresh, nutritious, tasty, flavorful and a balanced meal. Like the 21st century India, we are progressive with our cuisine and not bound by the ‘same-old’ mentality.

Had a business meeting there they were very accommodating and putting us at a corner table away from the rest of the guest and then after the meeting we were able to have lunch and enjoy the musical atmosphere I am. I enjoy bringing clients there they love the place the service and the food. We had two large orders of chicken wings and cornbread and spiked lemonade which was absolutely wonderful they dressed it up with cherries that I am addicted to will be back this weekend for brunch. Just found out they also do catering so I'll be looking into them doing a reception for me later on next month.
