The growling of stomachs signals the arrival of mealtime, much like the mellow sounds of soprano saxophone mark the end of a house party. Heed hunger's call with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of elegant new American cuisine at Isabella Restaurant in Dedham.
Isabella Restaurant's menu of artful new American cuisine incorporates locally sourced meats and produce whenever possible. Warm your fork on alluring appetizers such as baby greens bedecked with caramelized local apples, salted cashews, and Vermont cheddar, enrobed in mustard cider vinaigrette ($11 each). Next, choose from creative entrees such as hand-cut chive parpadelle pasta, which engages in a free-form flavor association with spring lamb ragu, fresh peas, mint, and mascarpone ($22). Vegetarians can sup on spicy Hong Kong noodles strewn with wok-fried vegetables and toasted cashews ($15), or make a dietary U-turn and add chicken, steak, or shrimp for an additional price. No matter the main course, a savory side of the Isabella favorite, truffle parmesan fries ($5), will masterfully match. End a melodious meal on a sweet note with crystallized ginger apple crisp served with vanilla-bean ice cream ($7).
- I've lived in Dedham 10 years, and have eaten at Isabella's countless times. More often than not, it pleases with a well-produced meal from fresh ingredients... – PLaurino, TripAdvisor
Isabella Restaurant is situated next to a movie theater, so perhaps that’s why its cuisine is so visually captivating. Under the guidance of executive chef John Mahoney, the eatery offers up succulent Atlantic salmon tossed in whole-wheat pasta and spicy hong kong noodles, served with wok-fried veggies and peanuts plus a choice of chicken, steak, or shrimp. Hardwood flooring bespeaks a muted elegance and pea-green walls help vegetables to feel relaxed.
