    Potentially best meal I've ever had. And that's not for lack of trying!!

    Constantly changing tasting menu with cocktails from Back Bar. Sit at the bar for the best view of the cooking.

    The apple Crumble is a mouth-watering apple-malt crumble served a la mode (aka just the way we like it) and a touch of fragrant micro-basil. Read more

    There's no menu at all — pay $75; eat what is served. The focus is on delicate, artful preparations of local ingredients. [Eater 38 Member]

    Seven small courses will leave you very full. Very few misses; mostly hits and a few home runs. Probably the best meal I've had in Boston.

    Bar seating is the best seating in the house - a view into the kitchen and no reservations required! Make sure to ask about the local & seasonal brews.

    Sit at the kitchen bar! You get a sneak peak at the food as it's being made, and extra anticip---------pation.

    On a special night, spend the extra money and try the 3, 5 or 7 course meal. The food is delicately prepared and even the small portions will fill you up eventually.

    Inspired work in molecular and locavore food....fascinating drinks, too. Steep prices, but definitely worth it. Our critic had fun because the restaurant partners and staff have fun. Read more
