Review: Floating Rock

Spicy Asian that rises above the rest
If summer brings an urge for spicy Asian food, this is a splendid place to get some, despite a few chili-pepper compromises.

seafood at Aragosta

Review: Aragosta Bar and Bistro

A robust Italian take on locavore cuisine
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.

Review: Basho Japanese Brasserie

A tasty fusion of new and traditional Japanese fare
Weirdly situated in the Fenway, this large restaurant from the owners of Back Bay's Douzo conveys an immediate sense of space well apportioned, with the minimalist fascination of the best haiku.

Beyond the State: What's reopening where

Venue Watch
As we enter Portland's busy season, there are several comings-and-goings (we'll focus on the comings and less on the goings) to keep track of as we plan our summer outings and evenings on the town.

1006_nico_list

Review: Nico

An average North End destination with a sweet ending
The North End can be touristy, it can be posh, it can be authentically Italian, it can be nostalgically Italian-American, it can be snooty white-sauce Italian, and sometimes it can be charmingly (or not so charmingly) vulgar.

Savor the flavors of beer

Beer is a chef’s best friend
Beer makes everything better, even food. And not just as an accompaniment to food, but as food .

Bombay Club

A favorite local Indian eatery finds a new home
As we were on our way home from dinner at Bombay Club, Mrs. Nadeau said, "We didn't try any curries — we missed that."

Review: Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill

Another victory, what a surprise
The baseball record books show that Gerald Peter Remy, in 10 major-league seasons, hit a total of seven home runs. On my first visit to his Boylston Street bar and grill, I was ready to declare the restaurant home run number eight.

Review: Anna D Café

A creative spin on classic comfort food
A roadside diner on a busy thoroughfare like Route 138 on Aquidneck Island has a captive audience of New York-to-Cape Cod travelers and summer visitors to nearby vineyards.

‘Junk Food’ Improvement

Don’t give up the sweets
Portland native and healthful-cookie entrepreneur Laura Trice has based her career on building a better sweet tooth.

Campino’s

Earning its ethnic loyalty
I rely a lot on my lumberjacks, as Dylan called them — specialists who can fill in my culinary ignorance.

Russell House Tavern

Tastes good, looks great — no gimmicks necessary
For a place with major, major foot traffic, Harvard Square has proven to be a tricky spot for restaurateurs.

Buddachen

Jae’s grill is reborn with pan-Asian zen
The Web site says “modern Asian bistro” and the other description they’ve put out is “ultra trendy modern Asian cuisine.”

La Masseria

Exemplary Italian fare in East Greenwich
The first thing to say about La Masseria is that, despite its name meaning “farmhouse” and its décor focusing on earth tones with exposed brick and pitchfork tines hanging on one wall, it’s a beautiful space.

Woodward at Ames

Ben Franklin meets a supermodel? Go with it — it works.
The Woodward is the slightly quieter upstairs of the Woodward Tavern, a high-concept downtown café-bar based on the idea “Ben Franklin meets a supermodel.”

South End Buttery

From Viennoiserie to veal: a local bakery grows up
South End Buttery started with cupcakes and coffee, but opened up a dining room below street level two summers ago, and has since gradually taken on more serious cheffery.

Barlow’s Restaurant

When in doubt, ask for a second opinion
It’s not unusual for this column to have a different opinion of restaurants than the column in the Boston Globe — I favor a flatter bell curve.

How to tell the truth

Phil Goldman has a lot to say
You may never have been so upset about being a twentysomething virgin that you hired a sexual surrogate for professional help, but odds are that if you had you’d just gulp and keep it to yourself.

Tallulah on Thames

World-class dining in Newport
The buzz about any new restaurant often takes a few months to circulate. For Tallulah on Thames, it took just a few days.

A Dutch treat lands in Providence

Sweets
Not long ago, a Brown student with a big idea decided to bake cookies. A ho-hum sugar cookie wouldn't do. No, this budding baker wanted something a bit more exotic.

Arbri Cafe

Albanian food returns to former Italian territory
I loved the Café Apollonia when it opened in this space in 2004 as what was then Boston's sole denominated Albanian restaurant.

Edgewood Café

For neighborly gourmands
The Edgewood Café's slogan is "casual neighborhood dining with a gourmet touch," and every adjective is scout's honor true.

The Daily Grill

A newcomer earns its keep
You can tell that the Daily Grill isn't from around here, because it describes itself as "modeled after the great big city grills of the '30s and '40s."

Review: India restaurant

A Feast for the Senses
At one time in the mid-'90s, India had branched out to three or four restaurants in Providence and the East Bay.

Conga's

Faking it, just not quite making it
The first clue to a fake restaurant is a phony name. Conga's isn't owned by an Afro-Cuban dance rhythm, and doesn't serve drums. Instead, it has a Spanish and South American menu cooked by Central Americans for Thai owners whose previous Japanese restaurant in this space didn't catch on.

Bistro du Midi

Fine, but not necessarily French
Bistro du Midi purports to serve "authentic Provençal" cuisine, but Midi actually refers to all of southern France.

Skara Grill

Satisfying a Grecian yearning
Having longed for an all-out Greek dining room in metro Boston since, well, almost since the Phoenix was reviewing plays by Euripides and protesting the Peloponnesian War, I finally hit Dionysos in Cambridge about a year before it closed in 2007.

The Village Haven

Traditional (and bountiful) fare in Forestdale
We were headed to a concert in Cumberland and we thought we'd make a slight detour to North Smithfield — the village of Forestdale, to be precise.
