Dave and Buster’s, Braintree

We came here for a birthday party last Friday. Prior to this, we had only visited the location in Providence. The Dave and Buster’s in Braintree is at least four times that of the one in Providence. It is located right next to the South Shore Plaza mall.

Once you walk in, you are carded immediately. There is a huge dining area and plenty of more arcade games. The one thing I did notice is that there is a large detail of policemen on duty after 10pm. Even though you are carded at the door, you are then carded again when you order alcohol the first time. The coat check is $1 if you don’t want to lug your winter coats around.

Walk the Plank- “Created by our mixologist in Irvine, CA, and fun to drink even if you haven’t done anything naughty. Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum, Malibu Coconut Rum, Peach Schapps, pineapple juice, orange juice and pomegranate syrup.”

I loved this drink. So much that the moment it get’s sunny and warm enough, I’ll try to recreate this at home. If you enjoy fruity, girly drinks that creep up on you, this is the one to get.

Bar Burgers and Wings Platter- “Four mini-cheeseburgers on Hawaiian rolls, paired with our Original Buffalo Wings. Served with seasoned french fries.”

These actually weren’t bad. They weren’t great but not terrible. I preferred the mini bar burgers over the wings however. The wings were overly greasy and under sauced. One thing I did notice is that the mini bar burgers were like mini White Castle sliders without the sauteed onion and cheddar cheese.

Grilled Chicken Quesadillas- “Grilled chicken, poblano & jalapeno peppers with cilantro, and a blend of melted Mexican and cheddar cheeses, folded & grilled in a cheddar jalapeno flour tortilla. Served with sour cream and salsa.”

The one thing that surprised me about these quesadillas is that there didn’t seem to be much chicken inside. Plenty of the other ingredients but easy on the chicken.

Island Grilled Trifecta- “Individual skewers of honey-teriyaki glazed sirlion steak, seasoned chicken breast and tender shrimp, all grilled to perfection and served on a bed of spicy rice medley. Served with pineapple pico de gallo, Teriyaki BBQ sauce, and a mango citrus sauce for dipping.”

I don’t like seasoned rice so I subbed it out for sweet potato fries. Overall I liked my dish for what it was, simple and edible. The shrimp was good, I just wish there were more of them. The chicken and beef skewers were a bit on the dry side but dipping them in the accompanying sauces certainly helped.

Chargrilled Sirloin Steak- “8oz Sirloin hand-seasoned with fresh cracked pepper. Served with loaded garlic mashed potatoes and crispy frazzled onions.”

We subbed out the frazzled onions for the mixed vegetables. The steak was left too long on the grill but we did not want to have to wait as the wait to order appetizers and entrees as well as waiting to receive them took far too long.

Buster’s Cheeseburger- “A half-pound burger with American cheese.”

Our birthday boy added on the bacon. What’s a birthday without a little bacon?! It looks like a standard burger and probably tastes that way too. The better question is it worth you money? Only you can decide.

Baked Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo- “Plump shrimp and grilled chicken breast sautéed with mushrooms and sundried tomatoes tossed with Cavatappi pasta and a three cheese Alfredo sauce. Topped with a garlic breadcrumb crust and baked until brown and bubbly.”

This baked pasta dish was a winner. It had the right amount of cheese and the shrimp and chicken were not overcooked but tender.

Although we wouldn’t necessarily return for the standard bar food when there are so many other new places to explore in Massachusetts, we would certainly return for the wonderful company, the drinks, and the arcade games. The friends and fun is what made it a great birthday party experience.

A Time to Taste, Financial District, Boston

A Time to Taste is a relatively new breakfast and sandwich shop located in the Financial District on Devonshire Street in between Winthrop Square and Milk Street. It took over the space once occupied by wrap-centric Roly Poly and is next door to Cafe de Boston.

A Time to Taste is owned and operated by a daughter, Tina, and her mother. They open for breakfast and lunch on weekdays from 7 AM to 4 PM and do catering as well. Their menu features soups, salads, sandwiches, panini, cookies, brownies, turnovers, and more. If a full sandwich at lunch is too much for you, A Time to Taste does offer soups daily which can be bought in a cup or bowl size. Patrons can request half a sandwich and a cup of soup. You can also request half sandwiches only. If you’re a bit adventurous or want variety, you can even request the halves of two different sandwiches.It’s clean, offers booths or stools for you to sit on and chow. Decor is unfussy and no frills, but this is a quick breakfast and lunch place that caters to Boston’s Financial District, so keep that in mind. Signs are clearly posted of the weekly specials as well as a calendar of upcoming specials and tastings. You can sign up for A Time to Taste’s email list in person if you’re interested in upcoming events.

Build Your Own Sandwich- turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato on white $7

Simple, basic, tasty and hits the spot if you’re hungry. The turkey tastes good too. The lettuce is fresh and crunchy, the tomato has flavor which is a good thing.

BLT Sandwich- bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo on a choice of white or wheat bread $4.99

The key thing here is the bacon. No self-respecting BLT is quality unless the bacon is quality, and A Time to Taste delivers. The bacon is crisp, pleasantly salty and clearly not limp. The bacon has been cooked long enough so that the fat has rendered off to become crunchy. A great BLT overall when you throw in their fresh lettuce and flavorful tomato.

Meatball Panini- meatballs, provolone cheese on ciabatta bread $8.25

This was a solid winner. The meatballs are dense and packed with beef yet well-seasoned. The tomato sauce is slightly sweet, the way I like it and the bread is chewy and crisp after being toasted. What’s not to like?

Chicken Salad- chicken salad, cranberry relish on cranberry pecan bread $8

We got the lunchbox special which consists of the daily sandwich special, a can of soda, chips and a cookie. In this case, it was the chicken salad, which we would have gotten if it wasn’t the special of the day. I must say, this is a very popular sandwich because while waiting in line, there were 4 others who ordered it. The sandwich itself was delicious. The combination of the sweet tangy cranberries and the crunchy nutty buttery pecans in the bread went well with the meaty turkey slathered in cranberry relish.

In the lunchbox special there also was a large chocolate chip cookie, pictured above. These are really good and are made fresh. Initially crunchy at first bite, they are moist and chewy with a good ratio of chocolate to cookie batter.

On the day we visited there also was a dessert tasting which featured the following:

Mini cherry cheesecakes and apricot or strawberry brambles

The cherry cheesecakes were adorable. They were good for about 3 bites which is perfect if you don’t want to eat too much dessert after lunch. The brambles reminded me of something my neighbor would make, homey and comforting. The flaky dense crust on these were almost like a thin shortbread.

Peanut butter cupcakes, banana bread, brownies, and coffee cake

The brownies were an obvious standout item for me out of these 4 choices. They were dense and packed with rich, sweet chocolate. They were cakey and somewhat fudgy at the same time. The coffee cake was also quite good. It had a good ratio of buttery light cake to sweet coffee crumble. My dining companion adored the banana bread.

Our other favorite dessert, besides the chocolate chip cookie, was the housemade congo bar. I know, I know! Some of you will say, well those are cookies too! They’re cookies. They’re blondies. They’re brownies. Whatever you want to call them, they’re good. You get the flavor of chocolate chip cookies and the moist texture of a brownie. We heard raves about it from a good friend that works nearby and can’t help but concur. I’m not sure what recipe Tina uses, but it’s certainly mouth-watering.

Before our visit we had scoped out the 3 mediocre reviews on Yelp, since there were none on Urbanspoon, and were shocked at the mediocre reviews from last year. However, on the other hand, the Boston Globe had a very favorable review of A Time to Taste’s breakfast muesli the other day. It made us a little wary of the food at first to be honest, but our fears have been laid to rest. Don’t be afraid to check it out.

A Time to Taste is fairly new and only been in business for less than six months. We hope to see many more solid lunch options available as their business continues to grow. Perhaps have a seasonal sandwich and salad rotation? We would also like to return to check out the breakfast sandwich options, garden salads, the roast beef sandwich with BBQ sauce and have another congo bar.

For our readers, feel free to tell Tina that you read about A Time to Taste on Urbanspoon. She would love to hear your feedback about her food.

Basho Japanese Brasserie, Fenway, Boston Revisited Again

Located down the street from Jerry Remy’s sports bar, Basho is a large, sleek, trendy, Vegas-style hip modern sushi restaurant in Fenway. It is owned by Jack Huang and is the sister restaurant to Duozo in the Back Bay. The sushi here is creative and delicious but horribly overpriced for the quality. They used to have a great sushi happy hour that is now discontinued and I used to go frequently because it was such a great value. Basically now, I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit Basho unless I was already in the area, going for a special occasion or absolutely necessary because parking in the Fenway area is horrible unless you are taking the T.

One of the more unique things about Basho is that it has the only robata grill in Boston. Skewers get cooked on an open fire basically. Some fantastic but small skewers of meat and vegetables can be had here. I really liked the Japanese eggplant and the Kobe beef when I had them on a previous visit. Also note, if you prefer a healthier option, brown rice is available for any order.

On this particular visit, I also noticed that because we were seated close to the window, it felt a bit drafty because of the cold winter air outside and the large airy space. Our waiter left something to be desired in the realm of customer service. He was very knowledgable but the general feeling I got was that he did not want to be at work. Granted, for a Friday night, business seemed rather slow, but that does not mean he should hurry us along in making our meal decisions nor rush over back to his other waitstaff cronies to keep gossiping. The food took a long time to come out than normal. The waitstaff and the kitchen possibly had an off day when we were there perhaps because I have had particularly good service on other visits.

We stopped for a light Friday dinner at Basho recently and had the following before meeting friends for drinks elsewhere:

Torched Salmon Salad- with crabmeat, shiitake, and mayo $8.25

This is an amazing appetizer. I’ve had it at least 4 times and it never fails to please. I think it is one of the best items on Basho’s menu personally. The thickly sliced salmon is lightly seared with a torch on each side than rolled around crabmeat, shiitake mushrooms and dressed with creamy mayo.

House assorted sashimi appetizer of salmon, tuna and torched toro

As I mentioned before, the sashimi is cut quite thick compared to other sushi places I have visited. It was extremely fresh this time around and thoroughly enjoyed the torched toro. 

Large Large ebi with a fried head

I’ve got a real soft spot for ebi in my voracious gullet. Especially the super sweet spot prawns where they flash-fry the head. The shrimp was deliciously sweet and fresh however the only downfall is that the fried head was pre-made. It was not as crisp as I would have expected if it was made to order.

Assorted maki rolls on the right- salmon, spicy tuna, and a single salmon nigiri

The maki rolls were improved in quality compared to previous visits. They were tightly wrapped and the fish was of good quality. Next time we would like to try getting brown rice in our sushi and see how it turns out.   Basho Japanese Brasserie on Urbanspoon

American Lamb Jam 2012 Highlights, The Charles Hotel, Cambridge

The American Lamb Board, partnered with Boston Chefs, held their third annual Lamb Jam at The Charles Hotel in Boston this past Sunday, February 19, 2012. The event was completely sold out and the upstairs conference room was packed with lamb loving attendees. We loved the ice skating rink in the front of the hotel, filled with youngsters learning to skate.

Boston’s American Lamb Jam was hosted by TV Diner‘s Billy Costa. There were eighteen chefs and restaurants represented at the event, each preparing one lamb dish using either a leg, shank, loin or shoulder cut of American lamb.

Part of the proceeds from Lamb Jam will go to benefit Share Our Strength,  a national non-profit geared towards ending childhood hunger in America by 2015. Their hope to reach this goal by creating public-private partnerships, building public awareness about childhood hunger, improving access to nutritious foods and educating families about nutritious, affordable eating. Help support a great cause and purchase tickets to Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation Boston at the Hynes Convention Center on April 19, 2012.

Chef Brian Alberg of The Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge took home the trophy for Best Overall dish, as well as winning Best Shoulder dish for his Lamb Shoulder & Kale Meatballs with Farm Girl Farm Smoked Tomato Puree & Parmesan Crustade. The flavor of all the components including the lamb and kale meatball was phenomenal. The meatball was tender and tomato sauce went well with the crispy bread.

As the Boston Best in Show winner, Alberg will now compete in California later this year against the other winners of Lamb Jams being held in cities across the country.

Cassie Piuma of Oleana was the People’s Choice favorite for Lebanese Style Lamb Crepe with Harra Sauce, Cucumber & Pomegranate. Every person we chatted with loved Oleana’s crepe and suggested go to Sofra. The crepe was a clever idea. The flavor of the Middle Eastern style filling was mouth-watering and was really enhanced by the other ingredients.  The texture as well as crunchy mouth feel of the fried chickpeas, sesame and sweet juicy pomegranate seeds were delicious. They provided such a neat sensation when you chewed.

Best Leg dish went to Chef Brian Reyelt of Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar for Lamb Leg & Bone Marrow Polpettone with Bourbon Cherries. The presentation with the bone was unbelievably creative. We flipped the bone over to pop out and pry the polpettone out of the bone. The sweetness of the cherry was a nice flavor addition to the tender meat.

Russell House Tavern‘s (BMH review of Russell House Tavern) Chef Michael Scelfo prepared plates of Braised Lamb Shank Terrine, Carraway Brioche, Horseradish and Crispy Lamb Bacon. They also won Best in Shank category. The terrine had a creamy texture and multiple layers of flavors from the carraway and horseradish.The bacon poprocks were a unique and surprisingly fun element in their dish.

There was a Providence first this year with a Rhode Island chef in the competition. He is bringing home a category best trophy to boot! Best Loin dish went to Chef Matt Jennings of Farmstead/La Laiterie (BMH review of La Laiterie) for Korean Lamb Reuben: Red Miso Cured Lamb Loin, Sauerruben, Gochujang 1000 Island and Smoked Emmentaler on a Semolina & Lamb Fat Roll. Jennings served his sandwich with lamb fat fried potato chips which were a huge hit. The potato chips were nicely salted, crunch and as good as duckfat fries. The loin was very tender and the cheese and sauce drenched the sandwich in rich flavor.

Congrats to all the winners! See the continuation of this post below to view the other lamb dishes and alcohol we tried as well as the fun goodies.

The spice station was a new idea this year. It was great to be able to make your own dry spice rubs for lamb or otherwise. The little packets to fill our own personal spice blends on your own was a lot of fun and very popular because by the time we left, they had run out!

Noir in the Charles Hotel served up miniature Bacon Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails. The bacon infusion was interesting and the burst of citrus really brightened the classic cocktail.

There was also a lamb butchery demo given by butchers from Tavolo and The Meat House, along with beer served by eight area breweries and wine from J. Lohr. Some of our favorite breweries were serving up their beers including Berkshire Brewing CompanyBlue Hills BreweryCape Ann BrewingHarpoon BreweryIpswich AleMayflower Brewing CompanyPretty Things Beer (a BMH favorite) and Rapscallion.

We tried a lovely petite syrah from J. Lohr that we are excited to keep in our red wine rotation going forward.

Pretty Things was a very popular beverage station because they ran out of their Field Mouse’s Farewell farmhouse ale within the first half hour. Their Jack D’or is a wonderful simple table beer that we love to drink regularly ourselves.

Tomasso Trattoria will be competing for awards for Best in Show and People’s Choice. They served Brasato D’agnello, Braised Lamb Ragu, Sweet Peppers and Fregola Salad. The texture of the fregola salad was fantastic and very refreshing.

Nuno Alves and Chris Douglass from Tavolo presented Beer Braised Lamb Shoulder with Seared Potato Gnocchi and Saffron Pepper Sauce One of our fellow attendees came up for fourths and fifths of this dish. It was one of his favorites and he said he loved the fact that the lamb was braised in beer and the gnocchi had a nice texture.

Peter Davis from Henrietta’s Table served Spicy Pulled Lamb Shank with Maine Yellow Eyed Beans and Grafton Farm Cheddar Cheese Grits. We loved the cheesy grits and the flavor of the spiced shank. This dish makes us want to return to The Charles Hotel and dine at Henrietta’s Table.

Louis Dibiccari from Storyville prepared a Lamb Meatball Grinder, Tomato Jam ‘n’ Gravy.  The meatball had a good flavor, but the bread was a bit tough to chew.

Tyson Podolski from Summer Winter prepared Chiang Mia Braised Lamb Shank with Winter Squash Cavatelli, Mint and Cilantro. This dish was one of our favorites. The lamb shank was unbelievably tender and the Asian flavors was a breath of fresh air amongst the other dishes. The cavatelli was perfectly al dente.  We are planning on visiting the Burlington Marriot’s Summer Winter for Restaurant Week in late March.

One of last year’s winners, Jim Solomon from The Fireplace, plated Mayflower Porter Braised Lamb Shank with Sweet Garlic Yogurt and Blood Orange over Cheesy Grits. The blood orange flavor with the creamy grits was a great combination. We also enjoyed the acidity of the yogurt with the lamb.

Rich Garcia from 606 Congress served up Medallions of American Lamb Leg, Winter Vegetables, Citrus and Anchovy Sauce. We really enjoyed seeing the sous vide process. The lamb leg had an interesting soft texture and the umami from the anchovy was quite tasty. The soft vegetables, however did not seem to enhance the dish much.

Toby Hill from Pain D’Avignon prepared Smoked Bone Marrow Beignet with Braised Lamb Shank, Vermont Shepherd Cheese and Blood Orange Mostarda. The size of the beignet was quite large, about palm size. The exterior of the beignet had a beautiful crust and nice soft interior. The flavor of the cheese and mostarda was very nice.

Joseph Margate from Clink made a Red Lamb Bun with Chickpeas and Yogurt. The bun was a great pillowy texture and light sweetness and I enjoyed the flavors of the filling.

Robert Sisca from Bistro du Midi (BMH review of Bistro du Midi) made Applewood smoked Lamb Loin Carpaccio, Baby Fennel, Turnips, Watermelon Radish, Micro Mint, Spicy Pepper Emulsion. There was a large line for this dish and the emulsion was quite vibrant. I liked the crisp of the fennel and turnips and flavor of the radish.

Sel de la Terre (BMH review of Sel de la Terre Mandarin and Sel de la Terre, Natick) served Lamb Loin brushed with Black Garlic Mustard and Garden Herb Breadcrumbs, Black Pudding wrapped with Crispy Shoe String Potatoes and Warm Parsnip Mousse. The sauce had a great flavor and the best part was the black pudding. That dark popover had a great crunch from the potatoes and we could eat more of those alone.

Will Gilson from The Herb Lyceum made Merguez, Wrapped Lamb Loin with Yogurt and Harissa was a good cold dish. The cooling yogurt was a nice touch.

Brian Rae from Rialto made Braised Lamb Sausage with Chickpeas, Grilled Romaine and Ricotta Salata. The sausage had a great snap and flavor.

Cabot Cheese from Vermont was serving aged cheese and promoting their beer infused cheese products and it was nice to try the varieties. If you answered a trivia question about cheese, you could get a plastic cutting board, perfect for chopping vegetables or whatnot. They also had a great machine that cut the cheese into cubes for them which was fun to watch.

One of the best non-lamb related samples was from Captain’s Coffee Brewers, based in Natick, MA. They serve cold brewed iced coffee. It has a great smooth flavor and was not acidic like most coffees. The coffee taste is very concentrated and I could easily see how you could just pour some to have a great instant ice coffee or make a wonderful coffee granita in the summer.

One of the best dessert items were the Harvard Sweet Boutique desserts. The mini salted caramel and peanut butter brownies were luscious, but our favorites were the airy and lightly sweet coconut cookies. Those cookies were mistaken for sugar cookies initially, but were irresistible once you had a bite. Harvard Sweet Boutique has been given accolades by people Rachel Ray and DailyCandy.

The media bag was filled with great samples including a wine glass, a tote, additional dry rub, some lamb jerky, and an adorable and buttery sheep sugar cookie with a 20% off coupon at Harvard Sweet Boutique.

We are looking forward to another fabulous Lamb Jam next year. The event was well run, delicious and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon while celebrating all things lamb.

Disclaimer: We received complimentary entrance to the event, all opinions are our own. Special thanks to FoodieBytes and Baltz and Company.

Russell House Tavern, Harvard Square, Cambridge- Revisited

Russell House Tavern is a mid-priced dark-wood and leather decorated gastropub, located directly off the T-stop in Harvard Square. It is a popular location with locals and visitors alike. We previously had brunch at Russell House Tavern last fall and we have been looking forward to dinner since.

The food here is good and fills a definite food void for me in Harvard Square. There are cheap eats and higher-end fare to be found but nothing as well-rounded with delicious, quality fare in the mid-price range. It’s modern, clean and the menu has something for everyone. The focus is on creative casual American food that is locally sourced and seasonally grown.

Chef Michael Schlefo gives a nod to offal in quite a few dishes on the menu as well. Although portion sizes can be a bit tinier than expected for the price, I find that Russell House Tavern provides unique and comforting food and drinks that I will be returning for, again and again. I’ve certainly got my eye on the crispy soft poached egg and the grass-fed burger next time around. Please note that Russell House Tavern is owned by the Grafton Group which also runs Temple Bar, Grafton Street and opening in Fall 2012, Park at the former Redline location.

We came on a Friday night around 9pm after a show at the A.R.T. to find an overly crowded downstairs bar. Following the usual waiting routine, we put our names in with the hostesses. Obviously while we waited, we were going to scout out the bar and sit there if we could find seating for three. Poised and ready to snatch seats, we waited. And waited. Then stared and conversed amongst our little trio. We waited some more, then positioned ourselves on opposite ends of the bar and continued to wait for leaving patrons. Finally after a fairly short thirty minute wait (it probably felt much longer because we were hungry) we snagged two seats at the bar, pushed them together and shared the impromptu banquette all together.

There were three bartenders for the large bar downstairs that night. Each one was dressed in a nice uniform of jeans, a grey suit vest, button down shirt with rolled sleeves and a tie. Given the busy hour, it was a bit tough to get their attention, but managed to do alright.

City of Eternal Spring- Rosangel Tequila, St. Germain, Meletti Amaro, Lemon, Grapefruit Bitters for $10

I really enjoyed this drink because it had one of my favorite liqueurs in it- St. Germain- an elderflower liqueur. The citrus and tequila helped to tone down the sweetness of the St. Germain and liven things up.

Pimm’s Cup- Pimm’s No. 1, ginger beer, lemon, cucumber for $10

This national, refreshing, seasonal English drink is not on the Russell House Tavern menu but any good bartender should be able to make you one. Pimm’s is a lovely fruit and herb infused gin that is a staple at most bars and restaurants. Pour some Pimm’s over ice, add seltzer or your favorite ginger beer/lemonade/ginger ale, and garnish with cucumber if you want to make it at home.

Archer Farms Beef &Tongue Meatballs- roasted tomato, melted Robiola, sage $9

You get two meatballs folks. Yup, that’s right. Why am I warning you? Because these little babies are so tender and tasty that you’ll want a whole plateful. They melt in your mouth and can easily be eaten with spoon.The roasted tomato is well seasoned with salt on the outside so make sure you chew it well to release the concentrated sweetness you get from roasting vegetables.

Archer Farms Beef Heart Ravioli, Pecorino crunchies, red wine sauce, pickled apple $9

I liked this a lot but wanted to love it. It was somehow missing something to push me in the right direction sadly. I’m definitely willing to try it again. I loved the tender, meaty beef heart inside as well as  the sweet and sour pickled apples with the au jus sauce but something about the pasta exterior was off for me. It could have been a random fluke.

Painted Hills Steak Tartare, griddled caper-brioche, chip-in farm egg yolk for $8

This was a very good tartare. The meat is clean, lightly seasoned and tasty. The egg is not on top like most traditional tartare but already mixed in. The brioche was crisp on the outside and slightly soft on the inside. The only disappointment was it was a small portion. For an additional $2, you can get a slightly larger portion size.

Warm Burrata Salad, honey roasted brussel sprouts, apple, Calabrian chili oil for $10

I really enjoy good brussel sprouts so when I saw this on the menu, I had to try it. I was glad we did. The roasted sprouts kissed with honey combined with the sweet apples and spicy oil went well with the creaminess of the cheesy burrata.

Citrus & Juniper Cured Gravlax- rye crumbs, pickled grapes, creme fraiche $8

This is a new item on the menu and it was pretty good. The housemade salmon was silky, smooth and lightly seasoned with citrus salt. When I ate it, there was only a hint of the citrus and I didn’t detect any juniper. The rye crumbs were more like mini rye croutons.The pickled grapes were something new to me. I’d never had a picked grape before. Sure, I’ve tried picked onions and beets, but grapes were a new territory in pickled foods. They added a pleasant sweet tang to the gravlax. Try it for yourself and see.
