Strawberry Shortcake at a restaurant?

Thank you all for your helpful suggestions, especially BostonZest re: the Strawberry Festival restaurants.

I do think of the biscuit version as the classic, and it's my preferred style. The discussion sent me to brief web research into the history of the dessert.

One of the earliest published recipes (1847) for the biscuit version instructs bakers to use a "brisk oven", a charming turn of phrase. http://www.kitchenproject.com/history...

Strawberry Shortcake at a restaurant?

I know I could make it myself, but shortness of time/heatwave/laziness prevent me from making fresh strawberry shortcake this week...

Any recommendations for classic or close-to-classic strawberry shortcake in a restaurant? I work in Cambridge and live in Arlington so usually eat out in that neck of the woods on weeknights.

Thanks!

Orange Roughy on a restaurant menu?

I know they're getting scarce, but a friend would like to track down a restaurant still serving orange roughy in the Boston area. Thanks!
