There we 3 of us and we had to sit at a 2-person table. When we asked for a larger table they said that is where they sit 3 people parties. It was ridiculously small and hard to fit food and drinks. More

My wife and I went in on a Saturday evening and had a really enjoyable meal. We love the Cafe's of Europe and this brought us back. I had the duck and she had the pork and both were good. They had a wonderful Creme Brulee. The service was wonderful and the prices were reasonable for the quality of food. We are already planning on coming back. More

Overall a great restaurant! The food was amazing (fried shocked with mashed potatoes and mac and cheese) and came out in an appropriate amount of time. Service was great. Really awesome beer selection and the seating options are great if you want something open to the outside air (plus seating outside). Strongly recommend traveling here for some great food and drinks (awesome for a get-together with friends). More

Wink and NodWink and Nod

Dining Bar | South End, Boston

We live in the neighborhood and walked to the venue. Wink and a Nod is a neighborhood gem and has an interesting operating principle. They bring in a top notch chef who creates an exquisite menu that lasts for a relatively short period of time (usually less than one year). It is usually small plates that are shareable. My wife and I visited on a Tuesday. It was our first visit in about 18 months so the menu was totally new to us. To begin, we shared the foie gras with Captain Crunch toasted bread and thinly sliced strawberries. It was delicious (of course, had to see what the Cap'n Crunch effect was!). We also had the 'exotic' grilled mushrooms. They were superb. My wife is not a big mushroom fan so knew I would have this delight all to myself. We have different libation likes too. I prefer a dry, non-hopped, pilsner. She prefers wine and cocktails. I had the Notch Session Pills, and in my opinion, is one of the best pilsners on the market, and relatively rare on drink lists when craft IPAs rule the market. She chose the 'whiskey in a jar' cocktail a very tasty poison which was a perfect complement to the foie gras. For a main course, we decided to share a full plate of the crab carbonara. The sauce was divine and the crab fresh and tasty. All three of these dishes were rich and filling and more than ample for the two of us. The service was very good. It is a little dark in the seating area that adds to the ambiance but we had to show our age and crack out the camera flashlights to read the menu. We spent about $55 per person including drinks (1+2) and the tip. It was a very, very, comfortable and worthwhile experience. Thank you. More

American | South End, Boston

Located in the heart of South Boston on East Broadway, we offer unique cafeteria style breakfast and lunch everyday. At night we transform our restaurant into candle lit table service offering casual American food with craft beer & wine. We are just under a mile from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in the bustling Seaport district and just 2 miles from Logan Airport.
You might find yourself starting your busy day off here with the banana & caramel french toast, just to wind up back here for lunch or later that night enjoying the Teriyaki Salmon or BBQ Tenderloin Steak Tips . The atmosphere might shift during the course of us serving three meals a day, but what remains is the same comfortable environment and exceptional food that made our sister restuarant in Beacon Hill famous.
