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

CocoDan Apr 23, 2012 07:31 AM

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.
Enjoy,
CocoDan

    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.
