Best of Boston 2014

Best Restaurant, 2014

General Excellence, West

Awarded by Boston Magazine

“…beautifully crafted bistro fare from Brendan Pelley, an alum of Clio and Tryst who was recently a featured chef at New York’s famed James Beard House. The toque has a knack for coaxing intense flavor out of seemingly simple ingredients (see: the restaurant’s pan-roasted rosemary chicken with shatteringly crisp skin, and the unctuous ramp fried rice with a slow-poached farm egg), some of which come for the kitchen’s own garden.”

James Beard House

This spring Chef Brendan Pelley was the featured chef at the James Beard House in Greenwich Village – one of the top culinary honors in America. 

We closed the restaurant for two days so our culinary team, and management team could all go and help.  It was an amazing experience.  Here are a few photos from the trip.  Photo credit Lena Shamoun 






























Buck-a-Shuck Oysters on Monday Nights

Monday nights – all oysters are only $1 each.

Fresh picked from the local waters, shucked to order, and served on the ½ shell, with house cocktail sauce, champagne mignonette, horseradish and lemon.  The cold waters of New England give us some amazing oysters, and also the best deal for you with our buck-a-shuck nights on Mondays.
