OUR PHILOSOPHY

From our cider-brined New England Pulled Pork Sandwich, to our Honey Truffle Goat Cheese Salad, our menu has broad appeal. We serve a daily selection of beautiful salads with bright, interesting flavors, as well as hearty interpretations of classic dishes, such as Mama’s Meatballs in house-made marinara served on a toasted roll with melted provolone cheese.

Our menu is composed of dishes incorporating flavors from across this country and around the world. Many items on our menu are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free, and we incorporate the best that our local purveyors have to offer, keeping our menu fresh and interesting with seasonal specials. Our Crispy Cauliflower with Curry Aioli, has become our signature side dish, bringing a new way for people to eat their vegetables!

We bake our own focaccia bread, and when tomatoes come into season, our best-selling Caprese Sandwich returns, with vine-ripened Gilson Farms tomatoes, our house-made bread, and the extraordinary, handmade, local mozzarella made by our friend Giuseppe from Mozzarella House. We are always seeking new partnerships with local food vendors. Chef David Harnik was an early promoter of the Boston Public Market, and teaches a series of classes there utilizing the abundance of fresh, local products available in our area.
