There is no freezer in the kitchen at Pearl Restaurant. Instead, chefs leave the eatery each morning to purchase ingredients from local farms and markets. That means that by the time the afternoon sun hits the shop, there is a new menu incorporating shark steaks, butternut squash, Maine crab, watermelon, and whatever else happens to be fresh. Using those seasonal ingredients and housemade pastas, chefs come up with unique dishes bound for the softly lit dining room. Past menu items have included a pear-and-goat-cheese salad, pan-roasted Boston cod, and slow-braised boneless short ribs with parmesan risotto. To eliminate the time and space between the cooking process and the diner, chefs also carefully craft most desserts right next to tables using fresh fruit and recently snared chocolate rabbits.
