"Living up to its name, has plenty of room for a group, kids or not. BTW, the chicken tenders looked pretty awesome. Decor is rustic, and the views of the snow were very cool. Bar is a well done, more dressed up area than the open/industrial dining area, but jeans are surely ok. We went with the restaurant week menu ($15 for 2 courses). We both had the grilled salad (served cold), with hearts of romaine, green beans, olives, fennel, red onion, dijon vinaigrette. The olives were a cool textural element, and the dressing was a perfect lemony complement to the char. I liked it cold. (usually $7.99). Then I went with the 3 piece fried chicken (usually $11.99). It was among the best I've had. Juicy, cruncy and flavoful. The hot sauce on the side brought it up to a great and manageable spice level (love spice, but sweat). Her roast beef (RR special) was tender, piled high, and made a nod. to Bmore with some tiger sauce . Arugula salad cut up the savory dish well. Overstock cocktail (scotch, ginger cayenne syrup, lemon, green chartreuse) was great. will eat there again soon!"

"Was the old Pabu. They reformatted to move it from small plates/upscale sushi to a more high end dinner club. Added a DJ booth and a darker vibe to assure the clientele knows to dress more hip. Beforehand, a hip tee and jeans were ok. Now, I'd say collared shirts are more appropriate for the fellas. Sushi (sashimi) was great - tried minerally mackerel, fresh sea scallop, and one of the most buttery speciments of uni I've had. Wife had the seaweed salad, which featured 4 different kinds. for main courses, she had a perfectly cooked miso cod, and I had a falling apart jobe short rib. Both were excellent. She went with the flourless chocolate cake and I had a spicy tuna roll for dessert, both hit the spot. Service was friendly, fast and efficient. However, will say that it was pricey. Had to get dessert to feel satisfied appetite wise."

"Great location for people watching. Wine list features the region, and often people haven't had wines from these regions. I love this type of cuisine and Andres does it right. Best spanakopita I've ever had. Also had some authentic / haute items that aren't your usual kefta, kabab, tzatziki, lebnah mezze. Had the soft and savory sweetbreads, which were brought a freshness with greens on top. Also, tried flavorful snails that were crusted with potato. They sat on a wonderful curry yogurt that begged for more of the fluffy, hot, thin Lebanese pita. Did try some classics, like the lamb/beef meatballs, and they did not disappoint. Love this place. Popping at HH,"

Co-Owners Brian Piccini and Executive Chef Christopher Coombs are proud of their award winning Restaurant & Bar, Deuxave in the Back Bay. The inspiration behind the restaurant’s American Nouveau Cuisine is seasonality, with a focus on working with the finest farms and purveyors, sourcing out the freshest, local ingredients and amplifying their magnificence. The cuisine is strongly rooted in the nouvelle techniques of contemporary French cuisine, married with the splendor of American ingredients in a refined, but casual setting. Deuxave’s (pronounced doo-ave) name plays homage to its location at the corners of Commonwealth Ave and Massachusetts Ave.

"Daryl was a great server, knew the food, wine, and made sure that even as a solo diner I was getting attention and service. He had a 10+ top next to me and still made sure to check in. Greeted with a glass of bubbly, a very nice way to welcome a diner. While I was warned that everything the chef does with duck turns to gold, I decided to not go double quack. I started with the Duet of raw beef: tartare with quail egg and carpaccio with truffle oil. Succulent and flavorful. Main course, tried the Spiced LI Duck Breast - Lentils du Puy with Arugula, “French Kisses” of pickled cherry, Prune Port Gastrique Honey Glazed Baby Turnips & Sauce Robert. For winter in Boston, just a warm and classy dish that showed off the duck and the skill of the kitchen. Chased it down with a 1/2 bottle of 2011 Chateau Taillefer, Pomerol, Bordeaux from France. Lovely evening. Good vibe at the bar it appeared with a decent view."

K Street, the road to the White House, is also the proud home to P.J. Clarke’s—the storied American Saloon with a history that dates back to the late 1800s. The original P.J. Clarke’s in Manhattan has stood beneath rows of skyscrapers for nearly 130 years, collecting famous and infamous regulars. Appreciated for the convivial ambiance and classic fare, P.J. Clarke’s is the quintessential American Saloon. In our nation’s capitol, the story continues as oak and mosaic floors, red leather banquets and walls lined with eccentric portraits and nostalgic photos contribute to a reassuring familiarity that is classic P.J.s, but also construe a distinct Washington sensibility. Seasoned bartenders make favorite classic cocktails the right way; dexterous shuckers ply the freshest shellfish at a marble topped Raw Bar; and the old-school, convivial dining room welcomes government A-listers, students and their families and visitors to our capitol.

"been to a few PJ's and the service is always friendly and professional. Food is always hearty and satisfying. Last night I had the French onion soup, which was hot and savory and perfect for a 20F night. Next had the kale salad. It was very colorful, with avocado, candied walnuts, green beans, carrots, olives. The lemon vinaigrette was barely needed. Rolls and a nice glass of wine made for a nice, filling meal."

The Fork & Wrench bar and dining room in Fell’s Prospect, Baltimore offers glocaly sourced, craft made fare and libations. The owners worked for two years to design and hand build the interior space themselves with the goal of evoking the 20’s, 30,s and 40’s working class. There are hints of a workshop, a linen factory line, a pharmacy, a college science lab, and a savings and loan office scattered thru out the rooms, balconies and courtyards of the space. It is their intent to combine the dive bar and 4-star attitudes into one space for the benefit of the “modern day” working class. The kitchen offers craft made fare using all local produce and meats when available. They use old recipes and new techniques (and vice-versa) with global influences to arm their ever-changing menu. We hope you enjoy!

"Love the space, great vibe and looks nothing like the former establishments. Everything was very seasonal and fresh. Tried the delicate hamachi crudo for a 1st course. Simple and fresh. Then I went with the stuffed veal, which was presented like a roll. Nice crunch outside and the filling, almost like my favorite death pudding, scrapple, kept it moist. Also had the golden and crunchy fried calamari as a shared starter and it was very tasty.. love this place for brunch too."

"Very old school, and we loved it that way. Views are spectacular. People should understand that looking from Manhattan is great but looking towards Manhattan is even better. Older crowd, a place for graduations, big celebrations, for parents to have formality and kids to have experience of how fine dining used to be (and that isn't a bad thing). Tried several things and all were spectacular. Food is frills for seasonality, ingredients and preparation with good portions; technique shines. APPS - Seafood duet (buttery scallops and tuna tartare), rabbit loin-fluffy ricotta dumplings-butternut squash. MAINS - a peppery, thick and perfectly cooked 16oz strip steak with bone marrow-cheese potatoes (decadent); earthy and filling mushroom wellington; juicy rack of CO lamb. I had the cheese selection for dessert and the pomme tartines were loved. Just a fantastic place that rebounded from Sandy to its glory."
