The Cottage Chestnut Hill has it’s origin in two different lifestyles. John grew up surfing the beaches of Southern California. Laura grew up in Wellesley and is the third generation in her family to have a business in town. Our decor, service and food reflect the casualness and familiarity of So Calif and the sophistication and warmth of New England. Please take a moment to say hello on your next visit. Welcome to the Cottage! — John + Laura

"This was our 2nd visit to The Cottage. Our first experience was "okay"... good food, but slow service. We returned in the hope it would be better. Couldn't be more wrong. We were sat our reserved time, but after 20 minutes, not a single person had greeted us. It took getting up to go to the reception to finally get someone over to our table. Shocker, you'd think the 5 times our waitress stopped at their tables during those 20 minutes, she could have at least said "Hello, I'll be right with you." But, I digress... for the rest of dinner, she was incredibly perturbed. Like, it's our fault we waited 20 minutes for your non-service.
Fish plate = good. "Chef's Special" Steak = mediocre at best.
Thanks, but we won't be back."

"Really enjoyed this place... It's hard to find fried eggplant strips in Boston, and they did a pretty good job with them. Steak Frites were good, the homemade BBQ sauce was phenomenal."

Beat Hôtel is an American brasserie and bar located in the heart of Harvard Square. Inspired by the hippie and beat movements of the mid-twentieth century, we cater to all walks of life. Our mission is to satisfy the local community as well as vagabonds passing through.<br /><br />With an always fresh, seasonal, and wholesome menu, enjoyable for carnivores and vegetarians alike, our dishes draw influence and flavors from around the world. Our bar celebrates American spirits and American artisanal wines crafted by small batch winemakers with heart and soul.<br /><br />To heighten the senses further, we feature daily live music by cutting edge musicians in jazz, blues and world music, bringing eclectic artistry to our stage in Cambridge.

"The Beat Hotel is the sister restaurant to The Beehive in the South End. While they are similar in many ways, they certainly also have their differences... and not to their detriments. The food, really great... and a diverse wine list that you've come to expect from the Beehive crew. The decor, definitely funky / cool. And as always, listening to The Funky AB's is always a treat.
We'll definitely be back!"

Tapeo offers great Spanish food in a European atmosphere. With authentic Spanish decor Tapeo can accommodate guests in two different dining rooms, whether it be near a fire place or large window overlooking Newbury Street in our Flamenco Dining Room or in a dim lite nook in our downstairs Bodega Room. We offer classic entrees, over 40 regional tapas, and a comprehensive, all-Spanish wine, sherry and spirits list. Tapeo also has outdoor seating, weather permitting. Thanks to a first-class pedigree (Somerville's award-winning Dali shares the same ownership) and an even better location (the heart of Newbury Street), Tapeo is easily the city's most popular Spanish restaurant.
