CSA Review

There is an great CSA article and comparison chart in last week's Dig. I found it VERY helpful for differentiating between the offerings.

Don Ricardo's, South End

I completely agree that the carrot sauce is worthy of swooning, we get it with the fried yucca. This is one of my favorite neighborhood spots and I also find myself nervous when we are the only ones in the restaurant on a Wednesday or Thursday night. I've been making my way through the fish options on the menu and I haven't encountered one that I haven't liked.

Lounge to enjoy 20-30 friends?

I would second Foundation Lounge, I celebrated a 30th birthday there recently and we had a great time. I believe the host reserved a few tables for $$$, but I think a group of people could easily overtake a space without a reservation.

Beignets in Boston

Stopped in for brunch and music at The Beehive on Saturday afternoon and noticed that they offer a basket of beignets on the menu. We didn't try them, but I was drooling when our neighbors at the bar got them.

Calling all hounds: Angela's Cafe needs your help!

Thanks fredid! I apologize for the duplicate question, sometimes it's hard to track down the specifics in these long posts.

Calling all hounds: Angela's Cafe needs your help!

I drool every time I read a post about Angela's. Like other posters the location has been a bit of a deterrent but I am committed to going...soon. There is a tentative plan to make a trip to Eastie tomorrow, however, my DC and myself are vegetarians (we eat fish & dairy). I've taken note of at least one shrimp dish, does Angela's have any other menu items that would be appropriate for us? If not, I'm happy to make a meal on the guacamole alone! Thanks in advance.

Any word on Summer Winter (related to Arrows) in Burlington?

I believe it is open for business...

where to get the best carrot cake in boston?

Had a slice of carrot cake from Flour (Fort Point Location) a few weeks ago that was wonderful. I'm not sure if they do entire cakes to order. The cream cheese frosting on this slice was most memorable.

Meyers+Chang? What's the Word?

Stopped in for some snacks last night for take out. Space is very modern and comfortable, although I'm concerned that the bar, the cash register and the ordering of take out all happens at the same location.

Ordered the Mama Chang (pork) and Lemony Shrimp dumplings, the Spring Rolls, and the Salt & Pepper Shrimp (may not be the right name). All were fabulous, especially the Shrimp dumplings, which are also Meyer's favorite - according to some friends who spoke to him on opening night. Looking forward to trying more of the menu (which is very reasonably priced).

They begin serving lunch on Monday.
