Hi all,

  1. I've heard pretty good reports on Northeast Social, not much lately about the others. I did win a $15 gift card to Citizen Cafe, will report back when I use it.

    1. Visited Northeast Social during the art crawl a couple months ago and it was awesome. Love the food, the staff, the atmosphere. If I lived in NE this would be my regular hangout.

      I actually live closer to Citizen Cafe, and I visited last summer and really liked it, but haven't had a chance to go back. I'll try to do a lunch there soon and report back.

      1. I love Citizen Cafe. Basics & comfort food done well & with a twist. House-made mustard so good I finished it plain...

        1. Good to hear! I made a reservation for Northeast Social this weekend, I'm no longer apprehensive. :)

          1. I haven't been to Levain in a year or so, but it was pretty good last time I was in.

              If it's really been a year since you've been there, then Levain has had some chef turnover in that time.

                I'm aware, which is why I didn't give a more thorough review.

                  Didn't they just get their old chef back?

                    I didn't hear anything about it, but I guess you're right. According to their FB page, Adam Vickerman is back at Levain.

                    Nice.

                      Adam's back! We've been back a few times since then and he's breathed new life into the place again. Love the prix fixe on Sunday nights. Had a really nice hanger steak with barley risotto last weekend.
