“Adventurous eaters” descend on this Harvard Square “hot spot” , where the “superb” , shareable New American offerings are “seasonal” and “inventive” , and there’s also a notable ‘Secret Burger’ (available in limited quantities at dinner); “accommodating” service and “creative drinks” from “excellent mixologists” assure “lively” crowds at the “exciting bar” and an atmosphere of “electricity” in the subterranean space featuring a “contemporary” spin on rustic decor.

I wasn't prepared. It's a small-plates style restaurant, so the dishes will come out one after the other. I've had better small plates elsewhere, so, for the price, I'd choose another restaurant. They definitely like to pickle things here. Pickled green beans, pickled nectarines, pickled slaw. Not really my thing, but I feel like I need to give it another try and choose some different dishes.

This place is always delivering! We have eaten here at least 6 times and never once had a bad experience. We usually sit at the bar because the bartenders are very knowledgeable and friendly. We are far from Vegetarians but we find ourselves gravitating towards the charred broccoli And the kale salad before we even look at anything else. Always a fantastic experience

Holy cow, such amazing food. First thing... it's pricey, but not ridiculously. 3 of us got 6 dishes and 2 cocktails each (and 2 free compliments of the chef dishes!) and the bill came to $170. If you're looking for amazing food, made by super talented chefs... this is the place to go. Make reservations if you can, but we walked up and sat at a shared she's table. I don't say it lightly... this place was awesome.
