"d-bar'-vous, all over again!

After not dining there for slightly over a year we thought there would be some new menu items. We were right, and the menu tweeks were a real nice surprise. Started off with their usual chewy Italian bread and their 3 dipping oils. Always good. Add a well made, slightly dirty martini, and we're off to the races. Next came a 5 veggie salad in a crunchy potato bowl with green goddess dressing. Plenty for 2 to share, and boy was it tasty. We both had nightly specials. My wife had the "homemade" sausage with asparagus, ramps and orecchiette pasta in a deliciously herby sauce. I had the muscles over "homemade" angel hair pasta with asparagus and baby spring onions in a lightly garlicy sauce. Got more bread to dip up the sauce to a spotlessly clean bowl. The "homemade" angel hair was some of the very best I've had (almost a good as my Nona's). Desert was a strawberry, rhubarb tart with "homemade" lavender ice cream.

Can't wait to get back. Will definately have more of the angel hair pasta with anything.

    I'm moving out of South Boston after 6 years and this is one of the places I didn't get to. Not that I'm moving that far (Medford) but I don't have a car. Luckily I have friends who live in the area so i can come back to try it.

        Chris Coombs is the chef, and a a pretty creative guy. Changes the specials frequently. Did I mention "free parking" on site. Check it out.

          Isn't Chris over at Deuxave these days?

          I love dBar, too. I have a friend who eats there almost every week.

            Hey Hampster, You may be right, but he's still in charge of the menu according to the waiters. I think I saw him peek out of the kitchen Saturday night.
