Restaurant week in Boston offers you the possibility to strive many eating places at very affordable costs. Three course meals are $20 at lunch and $30 at dinner. We tried one restaurant that was taking part and one which wasn’t, simply to match service and “aura” The primary one we tried was 647 Tremont Avenue, a retailer entrance restaurant, normally open just for dinner and Sunday brunch.
I began with a beneficiant slice of foie gras nearly as good as I’ve loved anyplace, served with dijon mustard and toast, higher than normal. My companion’s selection was a Julienne concoction of zucchini, chopped basil, and toasted almond slices, lovely to take a look at and refreshing. Her fundamental course consisted of grilled salmon with asparagus, each contemporary tasting and scrumptious. I attempted samosas with spinach and lentils. The spinach and lentils have been ready and seasoned completely however the filling for the samosas was truthful, and the dough, heavy and in want of a bit extra cooking. For dessert, the chocolate pudding cake tried by my chocoholic buddy, was discovered to be too candy for her liking. I selected rhubarb crepes, splendidly skinny and delicate with simply the correct amount of rhubarb, not too candy and never too tart. Their wine menu appeared fastidiously chosen and we loved a easy and fruity Louis Latour.
The restaurant was full, the service, pleasant and well timed however the desk was ghastly, with serving workers consistently tripping over the chair legs. Would we return? Sure. However we’d specify a desk request.
Our second restaurant was Abe and Louis, a steak home within the Again Bay on Boylston Avenue, not taking part in restaurant week, however full of consumers. It has a cheerful steak home environment with heat wooden panelling, cubicles and tables with white linen. Our waiter, Mauricio, good natured, agreeable, prepared to debate the American wines during which we have been and we have been nicely happy together with his suggestion, a 2006 Chardonnay from Chateau Ste. Michelle. For our fundamental course, we each selected steak salad, two completely different variations. Mine was a Caeser salad with completely ready steak, cooked medium uncommon as I requested. The greens have been crisp and the steak, soften in your mouth tender. My buddy’s salad with a balsamic dressing, included tomatoes and little chunks of bleu cheese. Each salads have been beneficiant parts and scrumptious. Two programs with wine. espresso, and gratuity value $62.
