Tasting Counter
Intimate spot for American tasting menus
New American · $$$
An "amazing experience" unfolds at this high-end yet "relaxed" concept from chef Peter Ungár, where inventive, always-changing multicourse tasting menus "transport you" beyond the intimate, spare setting within a "funky" Somerville warehouse; guests purchase tickets (gratuity is included), specify allergies and request beverage pairings online in advance, then assemble at a modern, 20-seat counter where the team theatrically crafts and presents each "exquisitely prepared" plate.

It was more an experience than a dinner - service was spectacular, food was fresh and interesting... nothing I would crave having again.. which may sound weird since I'm rating this so high. The dessert was the best part of the meal. A few suggestions to make this 5 star - espresso/cappuccino machine please! ending a dinner without that is sad. You get to choose wine/beer/sake pairing with your meal - my partner had beer - it should have been served super cold, it wasn't cold enough. And maybe less emulsion? Most things were dawned on it.. And lastly - the food should be served hot? Lukewarm food is not great food - it would help if the plates were warm also?

We went for the lunchtime five course tasting menu. The staff were great, really friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. Definitely give it a go if you're anywhere nearby.

A great experience - the chefs and hosts had a lot of pride for their ingredients and overall concept. We did the wine pairing for lunch and it did not disappoint!
