A farm to table American restaurant with a focus on seafood. Our menus change daily to reflect the best of what the markets have to offer and allows us to feature the work of many local artisans, growers and fishermen. A three course seafood tasting menu is always available. Jeremy and Lisa Sewall created Lineage Restaurant"s concept. We are a married couple with extensive culinary experience and deep New England roots. Located in the heart of Coolidge Corner, Brookline, Massachusetts, the name "Lineage" is based on Jeremy's own. In 1705, when this "Muddy River" hamlet of Boston became incorporated, Samuel Sewall, son of Judge Sewall of Salem Witch Trials fame, lent the community his services as the first Town Clerk and, it is thought, the name of his family's "Brooklin" lands, which lay between the Charles and Muddy Rivers.

"We hadn't been to Lineage in awhile. I don't know why not it's quite good. The tables are well spaced, so it's easy to talk. The menu is great, wine list was 50 percent off and really nice, and it has a good vibe. Our calamari appetizer with red curry sauce was great. Calamari was lightly battered and perfectly fried. The salmon in the salmon and lentil dish was cooked beautifully but the lentils were a little mushy and needed some acid, same for the beans that came with the perfectly cooked sea bass. All in all a very nice meal."

Contemporary Italian-Mediterranean cuisine served in an upbeat and sophisticated environment by a staff intent on providing you with a truly memorable dining experience. Sorellina, the 'kid sister' of acclaimed Chef Jamie Mammano's Mistral provides an intense look at regional Italian food with a modern twist. Sorellina's wine list focuses on some hidden Italian gems paired with an international selection creating an effortless opportunity to explore the unknown. The warm-modern design intertwined with the glow of the back wall mural and the floor to ceiling windows are a visually stunning combination.

"As usual Sorellina was good, but not great. The menu is a bit long in the tooth. Not much has changed in the last number of years. Four of us had a nice meal, nothing great, nothing memorable, except perhaps the bill. There are better restaurants in Boston at that price point. No wonder it was so easy to get a reservations."
