    My pic will not do this meal justice, this is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The grilled cabbage is an amazing combo of flavors. The rhubarb fourth course has unbelievable texture.

    Some pretty complex but well balanced dishes. Spinach and clam was a deliciously modern and deconstructed take on clam chowder.

    Birch serves combinations—like raw beef wrapped in kohlrabi, or slow-roasted carrot and grilled quahog clam with almond milk—that are surprising without being too challenging. Read more

    The $49 4-course is a good value! Some dishes work better than others but interesting overall
