Easy meals for $15 or less for 2 people
We can’t survive in America, really, without at least a handful of inexpensive, quick meals in our cooking repertoire, lest we feed on an endless stream of factory hot dogs and frozen pizzas.
Cheap. Fast. Good. Exciting.

A new book about Antarctic cuisine satisfies foodies and historians alike
As you nurse your post-Thanksgiving food coma back to normality, spare a thought for the men and women in Antarctica this holiday season. They're warm, well-fed, and happy (if really far from family) — but it wasn't always this way.

Review: Think Tank Bistrotheque
The owners have some very good ideas about food and drink — Southeast Asian treats are cool, and craft cocktails go better with them than wine does — but they have also produced some decisions that make the rest of us scratch our heads.

Review: Red Lantern
Red Lantern's menu (and the design of the giant room) hedges its bets — there's a decent sushi bar, a drinking bar with sports on the TVs, a flurry of hot-pot tables, and some serious steaks.
Nostalgic fusion with so much for so many

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.
A winning introduction to an underrated cuisine

Review: Tamarind House
Tamarind House perhaps shows too restrained a hand with its cuisine's boldest flavors, but it's a useful step up from the bowdlerized meekness of the suburban Thai run-of-the-mill.
A gentle step down from our fiercest traditional Thai restaurants

Review: Aragosta Bar and Bistro
Sensing, the previous restaurant in this Battery Wharf hotel/condo development, was locavore and high-church French, but too subtle. Aragosta proposes to solve that problem with a more robust cuisine focused on the most local of all ingredients: seafood.

When I heard that Wu’s was the favorite restaurant of a vegetarian acquaintance, I thought we might give it a try.

On the cheap: Ghazal Fine Indian Cuisine
Years ago, I brought a date to Boston's oldest Indian restaurant (the bygone Kebab-n-Kurry), promising, "The food's great, but the servers are the surliest bunch you've ever seen — so sullen it's hilarious!"
Far-ranging Indian, served with a smile

163 Vietnamese Sandwich
163 Vietnamese Sandwich is a typical slightly shabby Chinatown storefront.
