    I went to Emma's yesterday for the first time since it left huron ave. I was very disappointed.

    I won't repeat what others have already said, except to say that I'm in the unimpressed camp.

    For more detail look at the posts about Emma's from a few days ago.

    As for the b-side, I really like the cheese (gruyere?) they melt in the cast iron pan. I just wish it came with more toasted french bread. This is the closest I'm come to finding fondue/raclette (in a restaurant) in boston. Is this dish still on the menu? Actually, it may have been a special. Regardless, if they have it, try it!

        Thanks Doug. I'd forgotten they serve fondue.

          The Swissotel's restaurant does a wonderful raclette. Obviously it's more expensive than places in Europe but it's done very well.

      As for the posts about Emma's, look at Fusilli's post "Pizza in Boston Area - review" and the responses. You'll see that Emma's does have it followers - I'm just not one of them.
