Time is everything in life.
This should be the case in a restaurant specializing in small dishes.
As your server will tell you every time, the dishes are designed for sharing. (
When can we deal with this pre-meal preface and set up safe facilities in the knowledge of diners mastering this concept? )
He or she would recommend ordering two or three plates per person.
You imagine a leisurely evening, tasting something, chatting, sipping wine, and then tasting it when the next round of wine arrives. How civilized.
But the dishes you ordered arrived at the same time nine times.
They hardly fit on the table.
You can help your server arrange and rearrange in the diners Tetris game.
Then your leisurely night becomes freefor-
Everything, when a friend pushes a friend away in order to guarantee a few mouths.
Soon everything was cold.
94 Mass Ave does not meet this standard than anywhere else in town.
But still guilty.
You want to take a moment to taste the tempting mini
Chef Nicholas Dixon (Lucky’s).
But the rat St dumplings with pumpkin and brown butter, lobster grilled cheese, mahi tacos, cookie fried chicken, ribs and cheese fondue arrived at pell-mell.
Tasting them at once will give you a stomachache and make you unhappy, the worst of both worlds.
A little slower will vary.
There are two kinds of texture, chewy and crispy on the surface.
It is very delicious and sweet with slightly caramelized roasted oak pumpkin, a little sugar gourd walnut and nut brown butter.
It serves on a long plate on two small islands, which makes it more elegant than home.
Although it is a small plate, the weight is still very large.
People want to think about all the good ways of this dish, but it's time to continue.
Wee grilled cheese sandwich with lobster?
This is also a good thing now. (
Lobster on the menu.
Free mini grilled cheese and two mini cheese burgers. )
Crispy briochi has some seafood and sticky brio and Muenster.
Each sandwich has a lobster Cup with the same mini. tomato bisque. (
Sandwiches are more popular than the soup on my table;
People seem to want regular classic tomatoes. )
This is a clever update to the classic childhood lunch.
If you haven't tasted a small fish taco yet, you can enjoy it to the fullest.
A plate of four, spiced mahi, crispy shell, butter and fruit paste and mango salsa.
There are also chips and tomato salsa on the plate.
The taste of burrito is well matched, tropical and festive, but the fish is finished. the-top salty.
Chicken, steak and lobster tacos are also served.
Maybe the only thing that's as popular as lobster tacos right now is chicken and waffles.
94 Mass Ave missed the opportunity to make a small Eggos, instead matching the drum stick with a small biscuit.
The chicken is juicy, thick and crispy.
Don't be too shabby even if the cookies are heavy.
Again, the dish blinks from time to time
The gravy on the plate is very rich, decorated with chopped leeks.
Braised short rib is tender and rich, with rich sour cream-and-
Onions, potatoes and mushrooms.
Mini Kobe beef burger with Munster, bacon and sunshine-side-
Quail egg, perfect size for sandwiches.
If you're not rich enough, a big bucket of Emmental and Gruyere cheese is fine.
Bread is used for dipping. (
Can add tenderloin;
Our meat is dry and not so cooked.
This does not add to the experience. )
To eliminate fat, here is a dish for spsp --
Slices of zucchini with fried citrus, lemon and olive oil.
But the beet salad is made with a beet ribbon, not a wedge.
Even there, it's hard to say where the roots are.
Tater tots is delicious but disappointing, more like croquettes in texture.
The meatballs and shrimp dumplings are good, but they are not outstanding.
A huge frying pan with truffle macaroni and cheese
One of the several larger dishes on the menu, however, yes, still for sharing --is booby-
Stuck together with peas, broccoli and mushrooms is a strange combination.
Desserts can be decadent profanity made with caramel bananas, nuts and vanilla ice cream, or egg tart Meyer lemon cheesecake.
The food is lovely and well considered.
It was accompanied by a better cocktail.
Drinks menu has potential.
Featuring elegant margar tower with pink pepper and smoked sea salt;
Crush of mass drive, rye and velvet Falernum, sage and cranberry;
There is also the original book club with vodka of cucumber, lemon, mint and soda.
This ended up with vodka and soda of different flavors (
Ginger, lime, lemon, blueberry)
Known as a member of the book club.
There is imagination here, but there is no balance.
Pink pepper grains are difficult to distinguish in margar Tower wine;
A drink called Alibi's Rehab tastes only the elder Mullet liqueur it contains.
And there doesn't seem to be a particularly strong drink.
There is a quirky wine list with Zweigelt (Austria (
It's too hot for about 10 degrees.
And Italy moskato.
It would be nice if the beer served was as interesting as other places.
The Blue Moon and shoots do not match the spirit of this place.
Waiters are obviously interested in food and they want to share their knowledge even if you ask or care about receiving is not always wise.
On a crazy weekend night, the capable general manager, Dimitra Tsourianis at home and things are going pretty well.
On the slow Tuesday, it seems that the employee's input has decreased.
They just don't want to impress.
The Lyon Group opened 94 Mass Ave at the end of January. (
It was originally called Mass Ave, but perhaps too common.
With the new name you will never forget its location. )
The space used to be a match, offering a $5 main course for sliders, pop rock Martinez and ladies nights.
94 Mass Ave feels similar but a little longerup.
Match's gas fireplace is still burning behind the room;
Books and silver cups are now on the mantel.
On Friday and Saturday, crowds gathered on the young side to clean up the crooked leather stalls and long public tables.
They are looking for a fun and stylish place with friendly price tags.
This is No. 94 Volkswagen Avenue, and small plates are perfect for sharing if not a leisurely way.
