Cuchoi Cuchi, Kitchi Kitchi

What a fun place for a delicious meal of international small plates. The decor is pure kitch and the wait staff are dressed in 1920's show girl costumes. Went with four people and we shared seven small plates, and each one was a hit. I was thinking about which ones to list as our favorites, and... read more

Its an adventure to go to Cuchi Cuchi. The food is sooo good. Ive tried almost everything on the menu. Fernanda and her staff are so good and the dresses everyone wears all vintage. A fun place to go with good friends and they also know how to make cocktails.

We are now hopeless regulars. The cocktails at Cuchi Cuchi are surely the best in Boston. The ambiance is amazing. Packed and lively surroundings on a cold Tuesday night. We tried the Strawberry Basil cocktail and the Triple Passion Daiquiri which were both excellent. The second round was Mai Tai and Singapore Sling. The Mai Tai was excellent and the... More

Food here is fantastic! Portions are small but if you are not too hungry it is perfect. Their Rare tuna and Carpaccio Soup are incredible! I love this "crazy" atmosphere and eclectic look but when it is full you do not get good service and you feel rushed. During the week is better and it is totally worth it! Plan... More

My girlfriend and I often come here when we want to have bit more eclectic night of food and drink compared to some of the other surrounding restaurants. Extensive drink menu (love the pisco sour), good food, great atmosphere.

The taste and presentation of the food here is some of the best I've had in recent memory - simply excellent. The drink menu is extensive and fun, and watching the bartenders make the drinks in front of you is not to be missed. Highly recommend!

Food is very good and portions are sized such that you can try several things during one dinner. The cocktails (they have 60 or so) are good. Service is dressed in 50s style, very efficient. Seating was dense.
