My husband, youngest son and I came here for dinner on a Wednesday night. When we stepped in we were greeted by a hostess and taken to a table at the very back of the dining room even though there was only maybe 3 other tables taken. Not sure why we were put back there but it ended up that it worked as my son fell asleep literally as soon as we sat down and it was fairly quiet. The waitress brought bagel chips and a delicious spread to go on it. I ordered meatloaf and my husband ordered marinated steak tips. Both meals were delicious and provided a good portion. We also decided to share a slice of Boston Cream Pie for dessert. I don't normally like Boston Cream Pie, but I figured I was in Boston so why not. No wonder I never liked it -- this was nothing like I had ever tasted! OMG it was amazing! Everyone else's totally sucks compared with Zaftigs!
We ended up getting our son a PBJ to bring back, but unfortunately he didn't like it because there was a TON of peanut butter on it. My husband and I thought it was good though. I don't know if we'll ever get back to Brookline, but we may have to make a special trip just for dessert.
