Brutole in Danvers
I haven't posted in a long time but last night I went with a friend to Brutole in Danvers and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I checked here before I went because I'd seen this place years ago but it never seems to get much press. We ended up eating in the bar area although at 6 the place was empty but had a very nice atmosphere. We decided to order just apps. because the menu was pricey and I was reluctant to blow $30 on an entree if it was mediocre. For apps. we had a grilled seafood with polenta, nut crusted goat cheese salad with fruit, scallops with truffle oil and cucumber and squash ravioli in browned butter with spinach. All apps. were very good and HUGE. We each had 2 glasses of wine, coffee and shared a dessert-$106 without tip. We left around 9:30 and the bar was full and dining room half full. Menu is heavy on seafood with a chicken dish and a few steak options.
