Torch on Beacon Hill

Tom Mar 5, 2001 02:04 PM

Ate there Saturday night.

Appetizer of scallops and rock shimp with risotto was pretty good as was the foie gras.

Sea bass entree ($24) was overcooked and didn't seem fresh either.

Rack of Lamb special ($32) was very fatty with greasy potato rillette and mediocre asparagus.

Berry tart was really dry and couldn't have been cooked on premises.

It is too bad because this is a very friendly restaurant with very nice people and good service. The room is especially nice.

But alas the food is not very good and it is also overpriced.
