Review: Ed’s Roost

When local East Greenwichers fly the coop in the early morn, they often land at Ed's Roost, with all the other hungry chickens . . . er, customers. I might be forgiven the slip since the chicken — or more specifically, rooster theme — is so prevalent at

Review: Robinwood Café & Grille

The diner — that hallowed bastion of old-time Americana, the predecessor to modern fast-food joints — is simply not one of our long suits. In this relatively weak field, Robinwood Café & Grille, a Jamaica Plain diner, executes solidly on the standby

Review: Jasmine Taste of Persia

Boston is fortunate to boast a number of worthy budget-priced Persian restaurants, among which Jasmine Taste of Persia, located in a stretch of Watertown thick with indie restaurants and Armenian bakeries/grocers, has to rate highly.

Southwestern lunch food at Bella Drew's

Review: Bella Drew's

Bella Drew's, a new luncheonette, serves what it calls Southwestern-style cuisine, a regionalism expressed mostly by liberal applications of avocado.

Review: Jaho Coffee & Tea

Jaho is dedicated to slow living and slow brewing, but the haughty morning attitude of Boston commuters rushing for a cup may challenge this shop's efforts to make caffeine consumption relaxing.

Review: Billy's

Prominent in Billy's is the sort of plaque and menu notation you expect to see in a tavern that has "Ye Olde" in front of its name, only this one declares "Est. 2009." Optimistic. In a business that has the mortality rate of migrating salmon, it's appro

Mike's, downtown on Congress, bills itself as "home of the rock n roll sandwich." This deli doubles as a shrine to local music — sandwiches are named after local bands, and show posters cover the walls in the back room — and to the idea of rock music in

Review: Local Sprouts Cafe

The responsibilities of individualism are hard to bear. We must compete in a system in which we can sense the rules are fixed — succeeding or failing alone, moving up the ladder or onto unemployment.
