Short leash in Cambridge

Finale also has the best coffee in Harvard Square, in my opinion. It's Illy.

Spring 2008 openings and closings

Have eaten at Trata. Fairly tasty, thinnish crust pizza. Glad to have this in the neighborhood as a Cambridge One alternative.

lower cape dining (orleans) for July 4th weekend

Abba is a gem. In a tiny house on an out of the way street. Surprisingly inventive menu. If you get an early res, you also get the waitstaff's undivided attention and a chance to observe the locals in their element at the bar.

New menu at Gargoyle's

Good to know. Thx.

New Mexican Grill in Quincy

Too bad you can't get everything everywhere. = )
Like green corn tamales from the Border Grill.

Thanks for the update. Do you know if they're serving their new items at the bar? Can't recall whether they have separate menus.

Nobu quality sushi in Boston?

Yes, I heard that O Ya was recently annointed. But, I think it was graded on a curve. = ) Uni is definitely next on my list. After that, it may be the Bolt bus for me.

Nobu quality sushi in Boston?

I've eaten at Matsuhisa, Morimoto and the Hump. So my sushi bar is high. I moved to Boston 2 years ago. So far, I've been disappointed in the quality of sushi here. O-Ya is good. But, not amazing. Ate at Oishii in the SE Saturday night and was greatly disappointed. The sushi bar felt an assembly line. And not in a good way. The chefs made no contact with the patrons. And the sushi and sashimi was far from inventive. And not as fresh as it should be. In fact, I was horrified to see one of the sushi chefs carving up a frozen filet of salmon. Boston has many acclaimed restaurants: L'Espalier, Blue Ginger, No. 9 Park. Surely there must be a sushi restaurant of the same standard. Anyone?
