I've only been here once: I reeeeeally wanted to love this place because the it looks awesome and so does the menu. Service was super friendly but the food felt overpriced and came out lukewarm. The chicken and waffles were still really good, even with the somewhat cold waffles (which is saying something) but the brunch nachos were really tough to chew. Solid coffee and you can't pass up the donuts. Will definitely go again in hopes that my first time experience was an outlier.
What a cozy place with delicious food . My husband had chicken biscotti curry and he said that was the best he ever had in Boston. I also love their vegan omelette. They have plenty of options for drinks and vegan food. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area.
We went to this restaurant for the first time on new years eve and it was delicious! The staff were all very friendly and the food had so much flavor. My only criticism was that the food was a bit rushed but it was also new years so that is understandable. We would definitely go back again! On new years the first dish was scallop and sea urchin, the next eel on waffle, fried chicken with a cream sauce and caviar, then a beef A5 dip, cabbage with a miso sauce, mackerel with a been and onion puree, duck breast shaved over potatoes, and a chocolate donut. My favorite were the chicken, eel, and scallop dishes. We also got the wine pairing which was quite good and a great way to try new wines. I just wished they had paired a half glass with each dish instead of a full glass with every 2 dishes. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great restaurant and look forward to going back!
How it it possible to have food this innovative, beautiful, and complex while still being unpretentious, welcoming, and down to earth?! Well, the team at Brassica knows how, because that is the experience they deliver. Dining here has been one of the most delicious and well rounded experiences I?ve had in Boston. The atmosphere definitely embraces the ?neighborhood joint? but the cocktails and the food are complex, creative and surprisingly nuanced. Trendy or fine dining caliber with none of the snootiness. One thing that really impressed me was their ?waste not? approach. They ferment many items?which is not only a preserving method to cut down on waste, but adds such spectacular flavor ? bright umami, soulful acidity, earthy brininess. They even have the coolest cocktail menu I?ve seen in awhile, incorporating their house made ferments and concoctions. Drinks so delightful that you?ll remember them no matter how many you have ;) I dined solo at the bar on a busy Thursday night and the service was warm and attentive. The staff seems like they?re having a great time together which rubs off on the diners. You feel like you?re being taken care of by friends who just happen to be badass in the kitchen. I had the Brussels sprouts which were doused with maple miso yumminess. I don?t know what they do to the beets but they make any beet salad you?ve had before seem boring and incomplete. I also tried the steam bun with eggplant caponata which was a wonderful combination of textures and flavors and had a comfort food kind of vibe. *went back recently for a breakfast sandwich and coffee. I couldn?t help but leave with a pretzel donut? what???!?? So freaking delicious. I am always a sucker for salty and sweet and a yeasted donut. It does not disappoint.
First time and amazing food! Came in super hungry and left full!!! Fried chicken was perfect! Nice and juicy inside and crispy outside! Staff is all so nice and friendly. 100% will come back again!
Came here for tasting menu with a friend. They don?t separate each dish and ask you to figure it out. Also the portion is so small. For some dishes, it?s kind of embarrassing to share. For example, a plate of sashimi of 3 pieces. Or a skewer of baby carrot of 5 pieces. Those count one course and need to be share between the 2 of us. The waiter asked us how was the food and we said we didn?t like one of them. And he was like: okay. No replacement for it or apology. Overall, it?s overpriced for the quality for the food. Won?t come back again.
Wow. Heard good things about this restaurant and a lot of the reviews mentioned how stellar their fried chicken was so we came with expectations. We bought the Fried Chicken Sandwich with a side of Sticky Home Fries, Egg & Fried Chicken Biscuit, Chicken & Waffles, mocha, cappuccino, and a lavender London fog. Everything was amazing. Hands down the best fried chicken I've had in Boston. The chicken wasn't dry, the crust was super crunchy and flavorful, and it wasn't drenched in oil. I also appreciate how I didn't feel disgusting after eating the fried chicken. I think they also drizzle the fried chicken with a bit of maple & umeboshi syrup that gives it a bit of sweetness and helps give the fried chicken a harder crunch. Definitely also recommend the side of Sticky home fries - basically small chopped potatoes covered in the sticky maple & umeboshi syrup but it's not sickly sweet. All the fried chicken dishes come with a small cup of the restaurant's homemade fermented hot sauce which has a good amount of heat and leaves a good amount of tickling at the back of your throat. If you like a little bit of spice, it might be too much for you but it's not too bad to try. The dishes may look small but they're pretty filling. The employees are super nice, cheerful, and considerate. Very cutesy place. The drinks were great (but are automatically served in to-go cups). They automatically put in a gratitude service fee of 20% on the bill as well as a service fee and packaging fee (if you want a to-go box to pack up food you can't finish). Would definitely come back for the fried chicken and home fries but also to try their other menu items and drinks.
This place is seriously impressive. The staff is incredibly friendly. The food is just as nice. I'm so happy mu wife found out about it because now we found our go to date night spot. If you're reading this, seriously go check this place out. It's a little nonchalant Cafe for brunch and at night it turns into this unexpected small-plates-that-pack-a-big-punch zone of flavors I haven't seen before. Fried chicken with maple & umeboshi syrup? That's wild and just as good as it sounds. When you order that make sure to get the hot sauce add on. It's fermented and is completely unique. Did I mention they have wine tasting? I don't normally write longer reviews but this place really blew me away. You need to go here, for real. I can't wait to go back and try everything.
