To solve for the freshness of ingredients, one must multiply distance transported by time, then divide by free-style rapping ability. Sample Bel Air levels of freshness with today's deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of American cuisine and accompanying drinks at Abby Park. This comfortably upscale establishment is just a 15-minute drive from downtown Boston in East Milton Square.
Abby Park prides itself on serving dishes of recently reeled seafood and freshly harvested ingredients. Each plate is innovative but strangely familiar, like the banana's creative cousin, the bonono. With an atmosphere that's sophisticated but welcoming, you'll feel both classy and an unexplained urge to knit wool socks while you dine. It also boasts a full bar with a full staff of fully capable employees helping stomachs feel full.
Abby Park serves lunch, dinner, and brunch. Drop by for lunch for an array of salads, flatbread pizzas, sandwiches, and more. Examine the greenery with the Abby Greek salad (feta, garden veggies, and yogurt dressing, $8), or grab a flatbread topped with common and uncommon pizza ingredients such as the braised duck, caramelized onion, apricot, and manchego flatbread ($10). If you're hankering for a classic lunch sandwich done unclassically, reach for the jumbo-crab panini with spinach, farmer's cheese, and artichokes ($12).
When the eternal sun vs. moon battle swings in the moon's favor, lunch menus go into hiding while the moon-friendly dinner lineup takes center stage. Kick off your dinner with some slow-roasted pork cigars with sweet mustard dipping sauce ($8), then move on to heartier entrees and steaks. The cavatelli comes topped with fresh lobster, peas, leeks, saffron, and cream ($23). Order up a steak that's sparsely seasoned but fully flavorful, such as the 8-oz. filet ($28) or 10-oz. Kobe flank ($26). Add a splash of tipsy to your meal with a specialty cocktail or glass of fine wine. With a little help from liquid friends, you might detect a boost in conversational liveliness and experience an increased tolerance of your stepbrother's incessant ramblings about toy trains.
The Boston Globe has featured Abby Park, saying:
- Here comes the fried: Fritto misto is a great rendition, perfectly battered shrimp, squid, and slices of red chilies for kicks. Somebody knows how to drive that Frialator; the skin-on french fries that come with a burger are also very good.…For dessert, there’s a dry cinnamon brioche bread pudding, a pumpkin creme brulee with a perfect, crackling crust, and several other hulking desserts. – Devra First, Boston Globe
- The food was delicious and the staff -- everyone from the host to the waiter to the servers -- were friendly without being too casual. Highly recommended. – OpenTable user who dined on 11/17/2009
