Where to Sit: The restaurant has tall windows that let in lots of natural light, but they don’t provide much in the way of views. A rather more entertaining backdrop for wine lovers is the two large, extensively stocked wine cabinets.
When to Go: Weekend brunch provides a delicious alternate menu featuring food and drinks seldom seen on weekdays. Take your pick from bloody marys, mimosas, and dishes like buttermilk blueberry pancakes and duck-confit hash.
- Executive Chef Sean MacAlpine was once private chef to Italy’s elite on a privately chartered yacht that cruised the Mediterranean.
- The restaurant participates in Dine-Out Boston, a biannual event held in March and August. For two weeks each month, it offers a three-course meal for $33.
While You’re in the Neighborhood: Take a stroll through the Fens and visit the Fenway Victory Gardens, located less than 1 mile away off Boylston Street. They’re the last of the original victory gardens created nationwide during World War II, and the 7.5-acre plot is currently home to more than 500 gardens tended by green thumbs from the community.
