Once every 2 or 3 months for the past 2 years my wife and I, along with another couple, pick a restaurant in the western suburbs of Boston that we haven't been to before and give it a try. We were looking forward to trying...More

I had gnocci ( best I have ever had) and duck confit ( best I have ever had and I have it a lot.) The service was spot on and the atmosphere is upscale but not fancy.

We were there on a Friday night and had the duck. It was excellent. This is a gourmet restaurant. Although expensive we felt we received value because of the quality. Our only criticism is that it was busy and noisy.
