      It's in Cambridge where Cafe Celador used to be (5 Craigie Circle). I've heard some decent but not excellent buzz about it.

        Butterfish is fine. Not a 4-star, but a good neighborhood place that looks a little more refined than it actually is. Decor would have you believe that the dishes are refined and modern, but it's really just fancy-sounding home cookin'.

          I ate there a few weeks ago.. the place was empty on a Thursday night @ 8:00! And for good reason - food was **very** disapointing despite good reviews. Wonderful service, however. Maybe just a bad night?
