Good review in Globe today (but imo, Devra First's pinch hitters are a sorry lot.) Has anyone been? And did this chef/owner leave (his) two Ten Tables alltogether?
Yes, it's excellent. Duck board was one of many highlights.
Chef is no longer with Ten Tables Cambridge (was never with the other TT).
I agree that it's excellent (bar tending, food and service). I'd put it in the same league as Bergamot and Rendezvous.

Really enjoyed the bar and found the wine list accessible and with good low end choices. We loved the seafood cassoulet, the cod and the pot pie. The pate was "generic": nothing wrong with it but just like country pate with fig and cornichons from any decent restaurant. The yogurt panna cotta was yummy. My husband loved the beignets but I've never seen the reason to eat one anywhere but on the Mississippi at Cafe Du Monde. We would return and we found the service very good and the noise level within reason, both great additions to a very good dinner.
