Great Time in West Roxbury
I recently went out for dinner at the Masona Grill in West Roxbury. It's right near the T stop down the street from Roche Bros. I hadn't known it was there until I drove by......
I first tried to go on a Sat night but the place is slammed, and I didn't have a reservation, so I got a friend and checked it out on a Tues night.
The place has a great vibe. It's really cozy, relaxed, and warm with good music, and with servers that actually seem to enjoy their jobs. The menu wasn't too extensive, but it had a lot of options that I wanted to try. I ended up ordering the duck as my waitress recommended, and it was out of this world delicious, cooked perfectly, moist, and utterly fantastic. The sweet potato mash melted in my mouth. My friend got the Paella, which I tasted, and it was also very good. The seasoning was right on without being overdone. For appetizers we had a pear and blue cheese salad...alway a tasty pairing, and we had a shrimp ceviche that was terrific. Along with a pretty reasonable wine list and a piece of chocolate cake for dessert....Masona hit all the high notes for us. I'll definitely be making this a regular stop.
