We're going to Bergamot tonight, very excited, and would love any recommendations for apps/entrees/desserts... I promise to report back! Thanks!

    If you sit at the bar, the have a lovely lobster melt sandwich. Also at the bar, the bacon and egg dish (changes often) is almost always a standout. Regular menu has a wonderful pork belly ravioli as of late, as well. Have a great time.

    I'm editing this to say that I've never had a bad dish there, so really you can't go wrong.

      I had a terrific meal there last week. Standouts for me were the charcouterie plate and the bergamot-scented panna cotta, which was served as several "bites" (instead of a single portion) with apricots and pistachios.

        Thanks for the posts - we had an AMAZING meal. Truly one of the best of the past year... We started with the citrus salad and winter risotto - totally different dishes but both very satisfying. I had the scallops, which were perfectly prepared and just delicious while my husband had the steak, which he loved. We split the cinnamon chocolate cake with bruleed marshmallow and pepper ice cream (tasted better than it sounds - it was divine), and loved the white chocolate/passion fruit little nuggets that came with the bill. Great service, great room, and just incredible food. We never would have known about it if it wasn't for CH, so thanks for all of the buzz!

        (thanks for the above recs - I'm a non-meat, non-pork eater, which I should have specified above... But will go back for the lobster melt).

        Oh man...never realized they had a bar menu.
        Totally into checking that out.

          We checked it out - it's less expensive and looks delicious (burger, quesadilla, lobster melt, etc.)
