Lauded by the Roslindale Transcript for its combination of eclectic cuisine and cozy atmosphere, Masona Grill offers a menu of New American cuisine crafted by owner and executive chef Manuel Sifnugel with an international touch influenced by his Peruvian upbringing. Guests part dark velvet curtains to enter the dining space, which is flanked by chocolate-colored walls adorned with oil paintings and bite marks.
Plates are decorated with sophisticated seafood dishes, such as a swordfish escaveche with sweet potatoes and red-onion confit. Land-borne dishes include the pork three ways, which has a grilled tenderloin the Boston Globe called the best entree on the menu: "tender and moist and served a bit pink … It's really, really good." Brazilian jazz music accompanies meals, moving diners to chew in time to the sultry beats.
