Sandbagging: Notable New Spots in Allston-Brighton
Alright I have been sandbagging. There is a new Greek place in Brighton that looks very promising (a friend ate there and loved it) and I have not had a chance to check it out. I was holding off posting until I got to eat there first. Part of the competitive chowhounding sport of "first-chowing." That said, a few weeks have elapsed and I have not gotten there so heck, I will throw down the gauntlet: who is gonna beat me to the first post?
344 Washington St.
Brighton, MA 02135
And, hold onto your hats, a new dim sum place in the old V. Majestic location:
Gitlo's Dim Sum Bakery
164 Brighton Ave.
Allston, MA 02134
Not exactly sure why they call it a bakery as they seem to specialize in dumplings and the like. Looks VERY promising!
I checked out Esperia a few weeks ago based on good word of mouth. Just had a gyro, greek salad and spanikopita but thought the quality was high and it is a nice addition to the neighborhood. It won't displace Greek Corner and Farm Grill in Newton as my favorites but it is close to home and I will be back to Esperia to try some other dishes.
