RW: Eastern Standard (and Sage)
We liked RW at Sage, but since so many other people have posted about it already, I don't have much to add!
I just wanted to note that the $20.06 three-course RW lunch at Eastern Standard (Kenmore Square) was great! The chilled yellow-tomato soup with a dollop of crabmeat salad was DELICIOUS, and the grilled sausage with mustardy potato salad was simple but very satisfying. Perfect weather this week for sitting outside too!
did you get the charlolette or choc/cherry tart? both are new on the menu, and i know that jamie(the chef) was having chris?(the new desert guy) tweak it a bit. sry for my blabbering, but i work there and always like hearing outside feedback about places i work. othern' that, glad you enjoyed it :D also, i havn't actually gotten to taste the char. yet, so i have my reasons for wondering.....
Believe it or not, neither dessert appealed to me (for my own idiosyncratic reasons), so I got the cheese plate. For some weird reason, I don't like chocolate and fruit mixed together in a dessert! If it had been cherry tart OR a chocolate tart, I would have gotten it, but not the two together.
Also, the blueberry thing sounded too mushy to me: soft ladyfingers and soft blueberry mousse. I personally would have liked something with a little more bite, like a blueberry crisp or shortcake. But that's just my own bizarre tastes, which is why I didn't mention the dessert on my original posting. I'm sure plenty of other people would have loved the choc./cherry thing or the blueberry thing.
If you try the blueberry thing, see if it needs something crunchy like nuts added, and maybe suggest that to the dessert guy!
i just tried a bit of it today. it's kinda like tiramisu textured. not bad at all. and i forgot about the cheese.....
