The Blue Room is simple casual comfort. Housed in a renovated woven hose factory, this nationally acclaimed restaurant is composed of bare wood beams, brick and granite walls, cozy suede banquettes, soft lighting and zinc-topped tables. Chef Robert Grant puts his wood-burning grill to work creating dishes with influences from his time spent cooking his way through Italy, Spain and France using locally-sourced ingredients and techniques gleaned from his stints with renowned chefs Thomas Keller + Barbara Lynch. Along with the lively atmosphere comes an interesting, eclectic and affordable wine list. Stop in on Sunday nights for "Retail Wine" night, where 50 or so wines are offered at retail prices. Good & Friendly.

"From 1996, when I first went to the Blue Room, it has been invariably excellent. I "had to" eat at the Blue Room 3 nights in a week on this trip - NOT a hardship. It was 3-for-3 on all counts. The cuisine is well balanced, interested, local and excellent. Wait staff are great hosts, well informed and considerate. It's a great spot."

Local is, in every way, a product of its place, local in every sense–local farmers and local tastes, local vendors and local artisans, local community and local people. Our often-changing menu presents sophisticated, fresh, and direct cooking of the best of the markets and ranches.<br />Please see our website for the current menu.<br /><br>Local serves dinners Tuesday - Sunday evenings. We create our menu from the peak season, California vegetables, fruits, meat, and fish. We pour only natural, Californian wines.

"The Blue Room has been doing the same thing for decades - making exceptionally good, locally sourced and inventive cuisine. It is always good. It's a great space - comfortable, warm and friendly. Staff is always knowledgeable and friendly. And they have a great selection of wine - never same old stuf, always good old world wines that are well selected."

Located at 40 Brattle Street in Harvard Square, Alden & Harlow serves thoughtfully sourced, honest American food in a subterranean, modern and comfortable space. Replicating the style of cooking he does for family and friends in his home kitchen, Chef Michael Scelfo prepares humble, unpretentious food that honors tradition of place in its quality. It's how he connects with anyone who joins them at their table.<br /><br />While reservations are strongly suggested, we also save a portion of the dining room and bar for walk-ins in the event that your request cannot be accommodated, so, please, come on in!<br /><br />Parties of 8 or more, please call to make a reservation.<br />

"First time to this "destination" Indian restaurant and I didn't get it. I've had so much better Indian food without the pretense. It's a nice space. Service was quite bad and I was astonished when told that the bar tender refused to make any virgin cocktails. Only what's on the menu (drink by numbers? seriously?)"

Mission Beach Cafe is a true San Francisco neighborhood cafe. Offering Blue Bottle Coffee, Alan Carter's amazing morning pastries and desserts, Thomas Martinez's "Seasonal Progressive" cuisine at lunch, brunch, and dinner, or a glass of wine from our California-only wine list, Mission Beach is open throughout the day and evening to serve you. Come relax in our beautifully appointed, modernist environment designed to revive and replenish whether it be for a casual latte and piece of pie or full course, candlelit dinner.

"it starts with really nice people that make you feel at home in what seems like an unlikely place for a comfortable culinary gem. you feel sincerely welcome. the menu is california fresh with a dash of comfort. lots of good options for starters and mains. wine list is also very good with a focus on california.
Having "found" MBC only recenty, I've been only a couple of times, but I plan to become a regular.

"I always thought of MBC as a breakfast/brunch place, which isn't my thing. So, I'd never been. On a friend's recommendation, I tried it for dinner. It was excellent! The food was great. The people were super nice and gave good advice. It's a really nice space. And again, the food is excellent. I will definitely go back. I might even go for brunch!"
