Pomodoro and Ten Tables
Hi! I moved to Boston about a year ago and stumbled upon this site a couple months ago and it has helped me find so many great places in Boston -- Franklin Cafe, No. 9, Delux, Taranta, Petit Robert Bistro, Silvertone, to name just a few, so thank you! I haven't posted before, but in the past couple of days I ate at Pomodoro in Brookline and Ten Tables in JP and had excellent experiences so I thought I'd share.
A friend and I went to Pomodoro on Saturday night and everything was great -- the bread to start was delicious and then we split the veggie antipasti which was awesome. It had a combination of, among other things, eggplant (grilled and pureed), red peppers, hummus, some type of cheese, grilled crostini, etc. My friend had the duck risotto and I had the salmon -- both delicious. Between the two of us, we tried a couple different drinks which were great as well. We opted not to order dessert, but the waitress brought us a tiramisu on the house, which we clearly could not turn down...delicious as well!
Last night, I went with three others to Ten Tables and had the four course, wine paired dinner which last night was inspired by Spain. All the courses and wines were great: greens with hazelnuts and aprocots, sauteed squid in a spicy tomato sauce, chorizo with white beans and breadcrumbs, and a rich chocolate cake with almond brittle.
I heard about these two places through this site as well, so thanks again!
