The lowly mashed potato

Where can I find the best mashed potatoes around? Even creative, bastardized versions..

  1. The mashed potatoes at the Centre Street Cafe in JP are very good (real potatoes, fairly chunky, not too dry). It goes well with the salisbury steak that you can get there.

    1. I like the noplacelikehomefries at Sound Bites in Somerville - basically fried mashed potato patties. Also love the sour cream mashed at EVOO in Somerville.

      1. Blue Cheese Mashed $9 from Grill 23.

        1. Isn't the B-Side Lounge known for their mashed potatoes? Meal-sized portions, iirc.

            B-Side has right tasty lobster mashed, assuming it's still on the menu. Have been missing the old Union Square Bistro (downstairs bar menu) since they closed up shop several years back. They had about a dozen diff flavors of mashed, most of em delicious.

          2. A legitimate cousin on my to-do list is the potato pancake at
            Cafe Polonia.
