29 Newbury fuses the historic charm of Boston’s Back Bay with the horizon-chasing spirit of New American cuisine. In the seaside breeze, servers brighten tables with bistro-style seafood, steaks, and other delicacies. Today’s Reserve selection invites you to savor inventive flavors with a three-course dinner for two or four that includes the following selections from the dinner menu for each person:
- One starter
- One entree
- One side
- One dessert<p>
New Englanders are no stranger to fresh cod, but they’ve probably never experienced it 29 Newbury style: slow-roasted with chorizo and tomatoes. It’s an approach typical of a menu that stretches around the globe for inspiration—a sesame crust puts an Eastern spin on the salmon entree, and for vegetarians, there’s even a Thai-style tofu and sweet-potato coconut curry. In general, vegetables are far from an afterthought at 29 Newbury, whether they’re in the form of a side of crispy green beans, roasted beets topping a salad, or even grilled romaine in a Southwest-style rice bowl. The dessert menu is about evenly split between decadent and refreshing, with chocolate lava cake balanced by a trio of sprightly sorbets.
29 Newbury’s dedication to craftsmanship extends beyond the kitchen. Each month, it adorns the walls with the work of a different artist, although all tend to be united by a playful spirit. When it’s warm enough, guests can sit under the patio’s green parasols, where cold cocktails infused with fresh fruit make for a tasty antidote to the heat or a fainting fit brought on by gin deficiency.<p>
