Moonstones, Chelmsford, MA mini-review
I live in NY on Long Island but travel ~ monthly to Chelmsford for a week or so at a time for work.
My colleague and I learned about Restaurant Week from the Gourmet Gal blog (www.thesunblog.com/gourmetgal/) and decided it was time to find new new places. After drooling over the RW menus at several restaurants,we decided on Moonstones where we had a wonderful 4-course meal last week. We decided to eat at the bar, where Peggy took perfect care of us. The food was excellent - my braised short ribs appetizer was delectable, the mediterranean chicken soup was perfectly spiced for my palate, the salmon tandoori was a tad dry, but the accompanying veggies were perfect. My pal had the twin filets as an entree - they were the sole disappointment of the evening as they were much flatter than most filets and a bit overcooked for medium rare. I couldn't stop eating her parmesan truffle fries - they were that amazingly good - and I am not a fry person at all.
Amazingly we both polished off desert - well, I left a tiny bite of the Chocolate Pate while my colleague was very happy with the Brazilian Coconut Pudding.
I will definitely be back to sample more of the small plates, so I guess the Restaurant Week promotion worked in my case.
