Navy Yard Bistro

DCtoBoston Nov 18, 2006 11:35 PM

My wife and I recently moved to the Boston region and I must thank all the contributors to Chowhound for helping us acclimate to the culinary hotspots of Boston! I must say I had one of the most pleasant dining experiences at the Navy Yard Bistro in Charlestown on Friday night. Thanks again for your tips, we chose the Navy Yard Bistro and it did not disappoint. We only wish we lived closer - the menu was simple but very enjoyable and delicious. The service was among the best we had experienced in Boston. The owner, John Moore, was very pleasant and introduced himself to our table and ended up talking to us for quite sometime. Great wine list, great food - we strongly recommend it!

    DC ,

    yes that bob k is a very talented fellow. the thing that REALLY amazes me is the CONSISTENCY of the food quality at those 2 places!we go every year; those 2 and the minibar at cafe atlantico.

    if you put sib riv... in the search box at the top of the page,you'll get more accurate answer to your question. i think i've seen both pos and neg; maybe more neg.

    welcome to boston; not a particly friendly region, this new eng., but then i never found d.c. particly friendly either. at least the CH community is v friendly and helpful here- hope you'll come to a gathering and meet some of us!

      Opinionatedchef: sorry it took so long to reply. I am a huge fan of Kinkead's and Colvin Run Tavern in DC run by Sibling Rivalry's Bob Kinkead. Both are highly rated in DC and very popular for special occasions.

      I am dissapointed to hear your Sibling Rivalry experience did not live up to expectations - I have been dying to go. Does everyone else here feel the same way about SR or have their been good reviews?

        dc, glad to hear the rave; we have to try it now. btw, were you a fan of kinkead's and/or colvin run tavern?while bob has his name on Sibling Rivalry here, i really don't think he has much to do with it. we tried it once and didn't find it noteworthy- the opposite of our feelings about mr k's 2 d.c.area places.
        i figured that his bro. is just the lesser talent.)
