Celebrity Pizza in Watertown...mmmmm

For those who are not that into Javaberry, I highly recommend the pistachio soft server. So good especially on these hot days!

Best quality vegatables at inexpensive prices?

I also recommend Russo's in Watertown. Pricing is very fair and the quality and selection is excellent. They also have a great cheese section and their homemade pastas and ravioli are fantastic. Love Russo's!

Comfort in Watertown

We asked about this when we visited Comfort. The owner came out to see how everything was and in the course of the conversation we learned that Molana serves beer and wine now while Comfort upstairs is full bar. Not sure about ordering off the different menus, didn't think to ask that. Also found out that they are having some issues with the town in regards to signage but they are working on it.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Comfort ordering the crab cakes, mac n cheese as well as the maple glazed salmon. Crab cakes were great served over a really fresh tasting apple slaw. The combo of the crisp apples and the crab cakes was a good one. I liked the fact that the crab cakes weren't drenched in some sort of heavy sauce.

I had the mac n cheese and was impressed with the cheese sauce. I tend to stay away from mac and cheese in restaurants b/c it's hard to get the right consistency in the sauce but this was very impressive and creamy without being too soupy. I was also impressed by the size of the helping, a good sized crock that I thought would bring me leftovers but I actually ended up finishing it. My dining companion had maple glazed salmon which looked and tasted really good. It was a large portion of salmon and the glaze was not too sweet and didn't completely hide the taste of the fish. Salmon was served with a green salad as well as a side of lentils. Almost forgot about the green beens that came with the mac n cheese. They were cooked so that they were still crisp and had some sort of seasoning on them that was really tasty.

Having only been opened for about 6 weeks when we visited, we were quite impressed with the space which is warm and cozy. As with any new restaurant, I think there are a few kinks to work out but we look forward to our next visit.
