Z Square


Has anyone tried out Z Square (new place in Harvard Square), yet? Just heard about it this morning and I am curious to hear if it will live up to the hype.

  1. Okay...I stopped by and it looks like they are not open, yet. Stayed tuned.

    1. Here's their website: No info on there yet other than "opening soon".

      They are up on Open Table already. They won't let me make a reservation for tonight, but they will for tomorrow night, so hmmmm.

      1. They're open for business today, I have a friend who has been training as a waiter for the past week or two.

        1. It is open and I had dinner there on Friday night. We sat on the outdoor patio which was very charming with its lit up planters and comfortable due to the heat lamps. The flank steak was delicious with a nice green chimi churri sauce. I also loved the wings, which had a nice spice to them. The butternut squash soup was good, and my boyfriend's burger was juicy and tasty and served on a baguette. The service was attentive, and the price was right. We had 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 cocktails and it came to $48 bucks.

          1. I went to the cafe for lunch. It was not a pleasant experience. The turkey panini I ordered was small and scant on turkey. The only good thing about it was the melted gruyere. Not a bad sandwich, but only OK. The mixed greens along with it were boring. I counted 14 employees for 12 tables in the old upstairs of Finagle a Bagel. None of them seemed to know what to do. Of course that will get better with time, but I don't have much optimism for anything more than passable food here.

              What was the price of the sandwich? Do they serve fries?

                Over $8 I think. I can't remember what the choices were, but I'm not sure fries was one. I'm pretty sure potato salad a possible side.
