Great Meal At Hammersley's

Went to Hammersley's last night. They do not participate in Restaurant Week, but offered a $39 prix fixe.

As an appetizer I chose the corn/tomatoe salad with Green Goddess dressing. A great combination that worked very well together, and of course everything was very fresh.

For my entree I had the pork loin with watermelon salad. The loin was tender as can be and the sauce was very tasty. I think there was some cumin in there. The watermelon seemed to have some sort of vinegar dressing that made for a nice sweet/sour combination.

For desert I had the chocolate creme brulee with torched figs. This was very rich and delicious and featured a perfect crackly crust.

This was an extremely enjoyable meal and a great value. The portion sizes were very generous. I couldn't finish the creme brulee.

DC had the famous roast chicken. I sampled some. It is still amazine and melt-in-your moth delicous.

It's not wonder this place is a local favorite and been around so long!

  1. Haven't been there in years but nice to hear that Hammersley's still hits the high notes

    1. every time I go I wonder why I don't go more. Just about the most reliable go-to place around for so many years. Gordon is still on the line wearing his Red Sox hat(s)
