Sandrine's Bistro Restaurant Review

Sandrine's Bistro
My Opinions:  I haven't been back to this bistro in a while, but I do remember it fondly.  It is a place I currently recommend to people looking for a refreshing break from Harvard Square's more casual restaurants - The food and service is very good that I hope to revisit sooner than later - Great wine list

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Apple and Bleu Cheese Salade – Foie Gras Farandole – Angus Filet Mignon – Peking Duck Breast – Profiteroles

Sabur Restaurant Review

My Opinions:  This was a pleasantly surprising find in Davis Sq./Teele Sq. - The Mediterranean food is is very good. I always start with the Roasted Eggplant and Pepper Dip - I especially like coming here in the summer season because they have an outside deck you can dine and drink on - Certain nights they have live music in their lounge - They even have a small parking lot!

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Roasted Eggplant and Pepper Dip – Hand Stretched Burek – Olives – Zucchini and Fetta Fritters – Pears … Mix Greens Salad – Open Hearth Roast – Risotto – Chocolate and Hazelnut Filled Crepes – Poached Pear

Avila Restaurant Review

My Opinions: Service is good – Food quality is good, but some dishes are hit-or-miss – I suggest sticking with the most popular dishes – Ambiance is modern and sleek

Rustic Kitchen Restaurant Review

Rustic Kitchen Bistro & Bar
My Opinions: The location on the rim of the Park Plaza is not the best real estate, even though you would think it would be. The location is not obvious for some reason, and I feel that it gets overlooked even with their signage and well-known name. I've never seen it half-full before - Once inside, it's decorated the same as their other locations and their food is good, but nothing truly unique.

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Veal Meatballs – Arancini – Fried Calamari – Pear Salad – Sausage Pizza – Pot Pie of the Day – Tagliatelle Bolognese

Plaza III Restaurant Review

Plaza III, The Kansas City Steakhouse
My Opinions: A great steakhouse option in Faneuil Hall - the decor is typical, white linen and dark wood, with additional outdoor seating in the warm season - Service is consistently good - Food quality and preparation is very good - I love their cuts-of-meat cart they bring by ... learn while you eat (reminiscent of Morton's) - Sitting at the bar is very comfortable, especially as a single diner. You'll still get the great service plus friendly bar conversation!

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Pan Fried Crab Cakes – Spinach Salad – White Cheddar Potatoes – Filet Mignon – Prime Strip Steak Au Poivre – Tenderloin Brochette
