Best of Boston
2015 Best Tasting Menu
“We ask that the entire party order the same menu” is the familiar refrain at restaurants with tasting menus. Not so at this ambitious Back Bay restaurant, where diners at the same table can choose from the three-, five-, or eight-course menus, and chef Alex Crabb and his team will course them appropriately. If you’re with friends who share, that means you can try Brussels sprouts tossed in nutty Marmite butter from the $75 five-course menu and beef ravioli with charred leeks from the $50 three-course version. Budget- and taste-wise, everyone wins.
