Comfort food garbs your tongue in luxurious velveteen knickerbockers of flavour, as opposed to discomfort food, which clings to the face like an overtight ascot. Avoid the embarrassment of culinary crampers with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary cuisine at The Groove Kitchen and Music Room in Cambridge.
New chef Mike Boyd rears a rhapsody of culinary concoctions at The Groove Kitchen and Music Room. The inspired menu serenades diners with such musically named eats as the Sweet Home Alabama ($14), a barbecue-glazed and braised pork shoulder with sweet potato pancakes, and the Sgt. Pepper ($9), a Salisbury steak sandwich covered in a collage of peppercorn gravy, sautéed mushrooms, and cardboard cutouts of Carl Jung. On the weekends, live bands paint the walls with sound, blaring from saxophones, guitars, trumpets, and harmonically stretched vocal cords. The Groove Kitchen and Music Room tickles taste buds and tympanic membranes past midnight Tuesday through Saturday.
Echo Weekly named The Groove Kitchen and Music Room its Best of Food Winner in both 2009 and 2010, and it was reviewed in SNAP Cambridge. Five TripAdvisors give the Groove Kitchen an average of four owl eyes.
