Where to go in East Cambridge....? Slim Pickings?

once you have access to the T; you have access to a lot of Boston and Cambridge.

branzino - my dream fish!

thanks for the tip

branzino - my dream fish!

how do you prepare branzino?

Bar Boulud

it is interesting to see how well Boloud does controlling a place outside of his home city. That did not work out well for Von Gerichten but did for Jo Ho.


you need to do a search on chowhound; i go to Rialto on Mondays before 630 for my fix.

the list of restaurants involved probably keeps changing.

Market Basket

would arthur t. be back in charge if they behaved as you suggested? and would market basket be the same store?

Anywhere Similar to Rendezvous?

Rialto? Arlen?

in Boston, Asta, ICOB

You have ruled out Craigie's, but that is really the closest match in my opinion.

Would any Boston restaurants get any Michelin stars?

while beef is probably not a healthful food; i have not seen any evidence that gm fed beef is worse than natural beef.

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

this is not about greed; it is about one cousin hating another. does anyone think that artie t. was not doing a hell of a job running the business. but when you are as rich as artie s. it is a matter of fun and not money

Info on Market Basket new locations?

some told me that the changes are about money; obviously, it is about ego. they must know that they are harming a great business worth billions of dollars.

Best Dishes in Chinatown

steamed live shrimp available at other places, too, and it is nice when you get the larger ones.

Pepes Pizza coming to Boston

weekly, but how about living closer; why live in a food dessert?

If the mountain will not come to Mohammed, the Mohammed needs to go to the mountain.

If possible.

Pepes Pizza coming to Boston

sure, but NYC is probably the best city for food in the world. worth the trip IMHO.

Gene's Chinese Flatbread Cafe has opened in Woburn today!

any indication about expanding the menu; good food (and i met chinese who had traveled from connecticut just o eat there) but very limited menu,

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

what is your theory as to the genesis of the protests if not the esteem from Arthur T? I have talked to some people who are in business with MB; they are capitalists but sympathize with the workers and Arthur T. whom is widely considered to have been an excellent CEO.

Downtown Crossing?

this is not far from chinatown where there are numerous options. i like the fish-in-tank places.

Easy question: Any good *dinner* buffets in Boston area?

generally, buffets do not provide a great food experience; if there is an exception, i am not aware of it.

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

boycott a store because of change of management rather than bad behavior??

Miracle Fruit in Boston

give oc a break.

Best new ethnic restaurants in Cambridge/Somerville?

though i think that this is ridiculously pc, you can say, i am looking for a restaurant that is not american or Western European or say, Asian or South American. But really, I do not think that the word ethnic is a slur; I do not see why it needs to be banned as every one has a pretty good idea what an ethnic restaurant is plus or minus.

My guess is that O Ya would not be considered ethnic due to price.

July 2014 Openings and Closings

it appears that it is only getting a face lift.

How do restaurants here source? Organic/Healthy in Boston restaurants

several restaurants use new deal to source their seafood; I have seen cooks from various cambridge restaurants place orders.

Best Mussels (for cooking at home)

agree with buying any and all seafood at New Deal. there is a great recipe for mussels by von gerichten; you can probably find it online.

Day in Boston - where to eat Italian? Other suggestions?

sorry, you are right Ribelle is not open for lunch,

Day in Boston - where to eat Italian? Other suggestions?

i do not think that anyone has mentioned ribelle which has a 30 dollar prix fixe if you get there before 6 30, i think. And, if the weather is nice, you can sit outside.

Seafood dump on the table in Boston

there are several good fish-in-the tank seafood places including peach farm and east ocean seafood in Chinatown. I like to get the double lobsters or the szechuan (sic) fish at Dumpling House if you happen to be in Cambridge. I think that you can get better Chinese food in London though.

There are also lots of places that sell 1.00 oysters on any given night. You might want to settle down and have a couple dozen; i have.

Island Creek Oyster Bar has some good dishes; i am a fan of the pan roasted lobster at Summer Shack, one of my favorite dishes in Boston, period, though Summer Shack does not have lots of support on Chowhound. There are many seafood shacks up North; the fried clams can be great, the closest one to Boston would be Belle Island, which is in Winthrop.

NanaP [Jewish deli in Boston?]

wow, i will have to give Moody's a try. i will ask about hand cutting it for me; I am sure that will cement my reputation for being a pain in the butt.

D'Amelio's Off the Boat or ????

it was the one time that i had it; i am not a regular. it did get best of improper bostonian if you give that rag any credence. and it was recommended by the waiter over the lobster roll.

NanaP [Jewish deli in Boston?]

i concur; i would not recommend that visitors from Southern California try our delis; there is a lot better here.

Native Corn

a big part of the problem with tomatoes is the variety; they are bred for appearance and not for taste.
