Union Bar and Grille

phelana Apr 21, 2013 01:21 PM

My daughter and I went to Sunday Brunch recently. I love that they accept reservations for small parties. I appreciated the great service and friendly wait staff. Roland, our Trini waiter was top notch. Super food, really creative and tasty. I had the Huevos Rancheros deconstructed with salsa, a hard tortilla, avocado cream, black beans and scrambled eggs cooked to perfection. My daughter loved her beet salad. the Pimosas's were divine! The portions are small but perfect for me!

    Although I had one of the most memorable bites of food there 4 or 5 years ago, for me this place has totally jumped the shark.

    But maybe they are back on track?

      How has it "jumped the shark"? That seems like the wrong expression if you just plain don't like it anymore. Do they have servers in costumes and dishes like salmon w/ peanut butter?

        I believe that Hamster meant that it used to be very good, and then after a point noticeably declined in quality.

      Maybe it's that Union has gone downhill, or maybe it's that we've moved on. It has undergone a couple of chef changes and menu revamps, so your last experience of it may not be current. I had a meal there recently that I enjoyed.

      It still pretty much is what it has always been: a handsome space with very good service, okay bartending and wines, and a menu of unchallenging, middle-of-the-road New American fare at mid-high prices.

      I still wonder whether Aquitaine Group is considering a major reconcepting there. Certainly Boston Chops next door stole a lot of its look.
