Oh my goodness.. The combination of service, attention to detail, quality of food, and presentation were all top notch and worth every penny! I even got to enjoy Pappy Van Winkle!! I’ve been looking everywhere for that guy!! 🙂
Upon arriving and looking at the menu, I knew immediately what I was going to have. The Chef’s Tasting Journey. When a chef has such respect and understanding of the ingredients, there should be no doubt that the meal will be amazing. No substitutions, no allergies. I’m all in! And wow, when each dish is gorgeous, it makes for shooting food so easy! As you know, I’m all about showcasing the food as you would see it at the restaurant and wow.. you’re definitely in for a treat. Favorite dish was definitely the farm egg custard as the flavor was just superb! A special mention goes out to the intermezzo.; such a pleasant way to cleanse the palate. Honestly, all the dishes were fabulous.
A must try.
Fun fact: I was the first to enter the restaurant and one of the last to leave. Total dining time = 5 hours; a true journey that I would gladly do again!

Parking anywhere in Boston is rather tough; ended up parking at the a deck off of Massachusetts Ave and Newbury. I’m sure there is somewhere closer but I actually wanted to do some walking along Newbury St. Would recommend just doing valet. They can give you details at the number above.
