Sicker than your average, Alden & Harlow, was one of the best meals we have had in, like, forever.
Succulents, sugar pumpkin and service. We are in love.
Who wouldn't love Boston Magazine’s Best New Restaurant 2014 or a Bon Appetit Top 50 NewRestaurant nominee?

Our waiter, who was ah-mazing, recommended 2-3 small plates per person. We did 2, and it was perfect. Well, not perfect because we were too full for deconstructed cheesecake. One of three regrets for the night.
Charred Broccoli and Squash Hummus
Brussel Sprouts, Gruyere Frico, Burnt Honey Crema
Honey Glazed Burrata, Roasted Pumpkin Caponata
Raw Sugar Pumpkin Salad, Xertoli Almonds, Dates
Pickled Verril Farm Corn Pancakes
Fried Baby Octopus, Honey, Soy and Citrus Glaze, Squid Ink Aioli
(For meaties, our waiter said the best thing on the menu is the secret burger, but it sells out fast! Something about Clams and Pig's Ear is the talk of the town, too!)
Decent beer list.
Regret #2 was not going to the Biggie Brunch in August. Why did we pass this up?? Who doesn’t love a t-bone steak, cheese eggs and welch’s grape or honey butter played toast.
If you know me, you know I’m more of a Biggie fan than Comic-Con fan. But if you love geek-ing out, don’t miss tonight’s Comic-Con themed industry night, with perfectly punned cocktails and snacks. Starts at 10:30, costumes encouraged.
We need more A&H lunches, brunches and interviews by the pool in our life.
(Oh! Regret #3 was rubbing shoulders with Jonathan Clay at the Middle East and not asking for a photo! If you own a plaid shirt, you were probably there last night, but if not…you NEED to see Jamestown Revival live!)
