Besito Burlington Mall

Does "crispy street tacos" mean they were in those hard shell tortillas, or were they soft tortillas?

Down river ice cream in Essex

The Clam Box, Woodman's or Farnham's - which one to choose?

Several days ago red tide was reported to have closed down the Cape Ann area clam beds (and I think also the clam beds north of Cape Ann). So the clams you are getting right now are not the wonderful, local "Ipswich" clams.

Gloucester/Cape Ann ideas

I agree with some of the ones mentioned:

Short and Main
Jalapenos
Azorean
Halibut Point

The Causeway has big portions (easy to split a meal) and not just fried food and I generally think it’s pretty good. There is often a wait and they don't take res. The atmosphere is not so great but the plus is BYOB and value.

We hit the 3 mentioned above often but Causeway maybe once a year.

The best thing about Lat 43 for me is sitting at their outdoor patio overlooking the harbor on a beautiful day, so in those instances I will go there... usually for lunch.

The Studio in Rocky Neck has renovated and reopened under new ownership (I think the owners of The Rudder). Anyone been? There is one review in Yelp since the reopening and it is so glowing that I am not sure if it is planted or not.

I like The Rudder once in a while too, but that may be at a little higher price point than the others.

Organic Asparagus? Organic Artichokes?

I have not seen organic artichokes but I can sometimes get organic asparagus at Whole Foods in Fresh Pond Cambridge. For the past month and a half they don't have it every time but I did get it there this past Sunday, and a couple other times as well.

The Shawarma Place, Davis Square, Somerville

Between Noor and Shawarma Place, any opinions on which would have better choices for a vegan?

Red Sauce in Camberville

Vinny's is a good recommendation.

There is also Pescatore in Ball Sq Somerville and Out of the Blue in Davis. Both of those lean toward seafood.

Lobster Rolls: 2013 Edition

I don't eat mayo either. Do you have suggestions of places where you can order your lobster roll w/out mayo?

January 2013 Openings and Closings

Looks like OM in Harvard Square has shut its doors - I had a Gilt City voucher and tonight was the last night to use it. They were no longer on Open Table to make res. Called and keep getting voicemail saying the person I was trying to reach was on the phone. Walked over since I work in Hvd Sq and the door was open but the place is a mess. All the downstairs barstools and couches are gone and a ladder propped up in the middle of the floor. Called out but no one answered. The website is still up w/ no indication. Glad to have the refund from Gilt rather than go!

Osushi on Winthrop in Harvard Sq appears open. The stand up sign outside the restaurant says "Now serving lunch and dinner". But inside it looked like a couple of workers getting ready to open, no patrons and clean but barren looking.

Also not opening or closing news but passed Red House and they have sign saying 2 oysters for $1 from 3p-6p.

Pizza Dough

Agree with the TJ's wet dough. Any others I've tried have resulted in superior crust.

Critique my itinerary - 3 days in Boston

Just so you know, if you are looking for a beer or cocktail with your lunch, don't go to Bartley's as they only serve soft drinks.

Question About Wang's Vegetarian Dumplings

Wang's in Somerville has both Spinach and Leek dumplings and if I remember correctly, one of them has tofu and one does not. Can anyone tell me which has it?

Thanks!

Al Dente, Santarpio's or Regina???????????

I also agree with this. Regina's then Modern. (I've only been to Santapio's once and did not get all the love for that pizza at all.)

In Harvard Square where most recently the short lived Congo was, there are paper signs up saying a Sushi/Wine Bar is coming soon. There is no activity going on inside the space that I can tell.

Adrian's Truro?

There is no longer any review by "Mark". Makes me wonder if Mark removed it or the Yelp people did -- there was a story that Yelp helped those that paid them and hurt those that didn't.

Patricia Yeo to OM in Harvard Square

I had read that Yeo would be back in the area soon and this confirms where: http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.c... (terrible choice of font in the bio).

great meal at Bondir

Small Plates:

Is that Coeur de Boeuf vegetarian or is it actually some type of beef?

Would a pescatarian have many options on the menu?

Thanks for your review.

Dave's Pasta In Davis Square, Somerville; What IS My Problem??

I have been a long time fan of Dave's and the pasta and also a long time fan of Bella. At Dave's I've liked the porchini mushroom ravioli and the squash ones. There have been special ones too that I liked as well. Don't overcook - no more than 6 min in already boiling water. I also get sheets of Dave's pasta for when I do lasagna and don't pre-cook them at all -- just treat them like no-boil noodles. The whole wheat pasta and my veggie lasagnas go great together -- I kid you not!

Other items I pick up at Dave's when I am in are wine and bread and cheese. I have also gotten crab/crackers/produce. Definetely certain items can be expensive. Dave is a really nice guy and is always friendly when I see him in the store, taking time to recommend wines or whatever.

At Bella I tend to go for the shaped pasta, ziti or fusilli, or some other. I also get their frozen pumpkin ravioli now and again. I love that they are open on Sunday morning.

Birthday Dinner for a Larger Group?

Bistro du Midi on Boylston St in Boston has a private room the perfect size for 10. I ate there once when they first opened during restaurant week and I thought it was pretty good food-wise, but it did not blow me away either (but they did just open, and it was RW). There was a group in that private room and it looked very nice and they seemed to be throughly enjoying themselves.
