Restaurant of the month: The Breakfast Club

Restaurant of the month: The Breakfast Club

November 14, 2014


Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

The first thing we noticed about The Breakfast Club was not the shiny metal exterior, pinball machines or the thematic ‘80s music drifting out the restaurant door. We were immediately greeted by a long line extending out the door of the classic diner. Boston University students and local residents...

Restaurant of the Month: Fairsted Kitchen

Restaurant of the Month: Fairsted Kitchen

October 27, 2014


Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

Fairsted Kitchen, a Washington Square eatery, made us feel like family. The homey decor, which ranged from fairy lights draped over outdoor seating to wooden mantels and antique-looking lamps dripping off walls, instantly created an inviting atmosphere. The warm and open layout was accentuated by the stell...

Carlo’s Cucina

Carlo’s Cucina

May 28, 2014


Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

With its single window and spiritless restaurant sign, Carlo’s Cucina Italiana in Allston is not aesthetically pleasing or promising from the outside, but provides a pleasant and welcoming interior. Brightly colored murals of the Italian countryside cover two walls. Almost every table was full, ...

Tasty, but not exquisite. That’s how our party of eight generally felt about the food at Bernard’s, a new Chinese restaurant located in the far left section of The Street, Chestnut Hill’s rapidly expanding shopping mall.  For all the big energy it radiates, Bernard’s seems a bit on the small s...

Matt Murphy’s sits tucked away in Brookline Village, across the street from Starbucks and only a stone’s throw away from the high school. It caters mostly to middle-aged couples, but it is a nice upscale break from traditional student fare. Matt Murphy’s is a great place to have a dinner fill...

For a fun time, visit Osaka. For consistently good food and a truly unique dining experience, look elsewhere. Our dinner at Osaka Japanese Sushi & Steakhouse was accompanied by many highs and lows, and each diner in our party experienced a different Osaka. Osaka is tucked away on a Coolidge ...

Temptations Cafe

Temptations Cafe

December 18, 2013


Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

From the outside, Temptations Cafe was hardly anything to look at. Temptations looked like any other cafe where you can grab a coffee and a muffin and be done—nameless, but purposeful. The inside, however, was a very different environment. Upon stepping through the glass doors, the soft lighting and wood-patterned walls were comfortable and un...

Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

With the reclaimed wooden wall paneling and the black and white photographs faintly illuminated by the dimmed lights, Barcelona creates an immediate sense of intimacy for its patrons. Barcelona serves tapas, a form of Spanish cuisine that consists of appetizer-sized dishes that together offer customers a wide pale...

Takusan

Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

Miso soup, seaweed salad and california rolls: nothing out of the ordinary here. At Takusan, a relatively new all-you-can-eat Japanese restaurant, the menu seemed like a compilation of all of the most “been there, done that” dishes known to the history of Japanese restaurants in America. Despi...

On a sunny 75 degree day there really is nothing better than a guilt-free, sweet treat. At 16 Handles, that is exactly what you will find - a variety of exotic frozen yogurts and over twenty different toppings ranging anywhere from sweet to salty and even fruity. 16 Handles, located right in the hear...

Shake Shack

Shake Shack

May 23, 2013


Filed under Arts, Restaurant Reviews

The hype behind Shake Shack was absolutely enormous. The buzz around town was that Shake Shack had the best burger around and would take over the nice variety of burger chains and restaurants that are in the local Boston area. And so, our expectations were high for this New York-based burger joint...
