"The place must only get busy after the pro sport games get out. It was pretty empty but service was still terrible. Had to call our waiter over for everything. And the food ranged from okay to awful. They had something on the menu called chowder that didn't even look the right color for chowder. They should just stick to bar basics."

Chef Daniel Bojorquez and Chef Frank McClelland are excited to open La Brasa in Spring 2014. The food at La Brasa has culinary influences rooted in the same countries as many of the residents of East Somerville: Mexico, Peru, the Middle East to name a few. The heart of La Brasa is the wood on which this food will be cooked. Most people associate the smells of a wood-burning stove and an open fire with family, friends, and community.

"We had never had a reason to venture to the part of Somerville past Rt 28, but La Brasa was a welcome find. We had the rib roast table service which while a little kitchy was very tasty. It comes with au jus and a sauce as well as seasonings. I had a 10 oz portion which was a good size with an app. The restaurant is large, casual, well decorated, and has a nice bar. Music was initially too loud but someone else must have noticed and they turned it down so we could talk without shouting. I hope they do well."

If there is a single food that can represent Argentina, it is beef. The rich grassland plains, the pampas, rest in the shadows of the Andes and feed the people not only their wheat and corn, but also the grazing land for the cattle and sheep. Argentine beef is highly prized for its flavor and tenderness. It is our wish that at Tango you will experience a bit of Argentina and enjoy this authentic and unique cuisine. Buen Provecho!

"We've been here at least 10 times. Food is always good, but almost without fail the kitchen is pretty slow regardless of how busy it is. I think it is just too small."

Resto, French slang for casual restaurant, opened its doors in April 2007. The concept of a laid back neighborhood gathering place with approachable Belgian food in the style of New York, was created by the owner, Christian Pappanicholas. Resto has become a destination in Gramercy Park/Murray Hill for a delicious dinner, weekend brunch or a late night bite. The knowledgeable and friendly staff is well versed in the extensive Belgian beer list and the thoughtful wine list which focuses on a selection of French, Italian and Spanish wines. The menu is crafted using traditional French technique, with an emphasis on seasonal, mostly local, farm fresh ingredients. Resto prides itself on elements like a revolving seasonal menu as well as large format plates such as Cote De Boeuf, Whole Roasted Pig or Lamb. Resto's dining room can accommodate 75 guests with 12 seats at the bar where we encourage full dining. We also have our baby brother "The Cannibal" next door; a retail beer & butcher shop.

"Everything we ate was excellent. I was in town for business with a colleague who's food range includes burgers and macaroni. I wanted to take him to the The Cannibal but the main courses there were a little beyond the bend. Resto was perfect. The 16 oz bone-in pork chop was cooked perfectly medium rare and garnished with mushrooms and pork cracklins. The cracklins were like superb meat croutons. The pork was a little rare for my friend but absolute perfect for me and anyone who appreciates quality meat. The bone had so much crispy goodness on it I just wanted to pick it up and gnaw off every last bit. But, I'll say the real surprise was the lamb riblet app. Whatever that sauce was that came with it was just the ideal complement and both my colleague and I could not stop talking about it. Highly recommend Resto. It's casual but top notch on food."

At The Merchant, we make almost all our fare from scratch. Executive chef Matt Foley previously worked at both Craigie on Main in Cambridge and Sycamore in Newton. The Merchant is a big space that served for more than a century as a leather store. We've brought in high-top tables near the windows ... a 40-foot bar on one side of the room … and more formal dining spots on the opposite side. We have a semi-private dining room in back, and another dining room downstairs. For our menu, Chef Foley cures and smokes all the meat in house. Our burger is top-notch, as are other dishes like steak and eggs, sweetbread nuggets, and “rustic” desserts. The Merchant serves salads, sandwiches ($10-$12), and more for the lunch rush. And for dinner, we are a full-service brasserie (with most entrees ranging from $20-$24). The bar has 36 beers on tap, many of them locally brewed, plus a full selection of craft cocktails to serve our patrons, especially the after-work crowd.

Welcome to The Kirkland Tap & Trotter! Our food is simple, hearty and approachable. It is how Chef Maws cooks at home for friends and family. At the center of the kitchen is our hardwood grill where you can find us cooking up any of our options to share as well as other grilled fare. Tony has designed an affordable menu, making it easy to eat here often. Keeping with the theme of The Kirkland Tap & Trotter being an every-night-of-the-week establishment, beverage choices will also be representative of things we like to drink. We invite you to drop by after work to try something from our expansive beer list, a straightforward and delicious cocktail, or one of our many wines by the glass with our usual preference toward wines with a bit of funk. We’re open for dinner seven days a week.

"Service was attentive and friendly. Food was overall outstanding. Favs included charcuterie board, tomato toast, ribeye, potatoes chorizo and egg. Squid ink seafood was very interesting though seemed like it could have been cooked less. Perfect torte also excellent. All in all dishes could have come out slower."

Harry & Izzy's is an independent, upscale American Grill located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. Its ambience exudes class and sophistication in a comfortable setting. While the lively bar is Harry & Izzy's focal point, unique dining rooms incorporate dark woods, lush fabrics and a deep color palette. This sister restaurant to the famous St. Elmo Steak House, shares a few classic dishes, while offering more menu variety. Open for lunch and dinner daily.

"It just didn't live up to my memory of previous years visiting for business dinners at Harry and Izzy's. Shrimp cocktail is still excellent, but my bone-in ribeye flavor was pretty flat and the sauted mushrooms were completely flavorless. Bread pudding dessert was excellent as was service. For spending nearly $100/person I expect a better food experience. I'll give St. Elmo's a try next year and see if that is better."

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.
