Clutching our Groupon in hand, we sallied forth on Sunday late afternoon to this store front restaurant in Newton Center. It was early and we had a choice of any table or booth. Seated at a booth we were given the menu and the wine/beer list by an enthusiastic waitress.
The menu offered a varied selection mostly around $20. We were on a mission to spend $50 so we chose the loin lamb chops with watercress and buttered mashed potatoes. The wine by the bottle was reasonable enough and what we did not consume, we had packed in plastic to take home. Typically we are a 1/2 bottle family. We did not chose among a few salad appetizers.
The chops came medium to rare and were delicious. Nicely seared and lacking and gaminess. They came as a generous pair and were perfectly cooked. The watercress atop the dish was also welcome. I have rarely had a better prepared dish.
No less wonderful was the dessert. A strawberry rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream that was a perfect coda to this wonderful dinner.
We were both surprised and delighted by this discovery. The question of course is can they keep it up. In any case we will look forward to our next meal there.
