This post is looooong overdue, and unfortunately it is not the only one. Summer fun in Newport then immediately getting started with Beachbody coaching and the 21 Day Fix in September kept me from keeping up with my posts.
Totally worth it.
Back in August my friends and I decided to take advantage Dine Out Boston (formerly Restaurant Week). I love Dine Out Boston because twice a year in March and August participating restaurants put together a pre-fix coursed lunch and/or dinner menu for these fantastic prices:
I think it is a great opportunity to try a new restaurant or visit an old favorite. Some restaurants even price in wine pairings to take your dining experience to the next level!
After hearing rave reviews from friends and coworkers about Henrietta’s Table I jumped at the chance to make a reservation here with my girlfriends. Located within The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA this farm-to-table restaurant has been wowing guests for 15 years.
To start I chose the New England Salt Cod Cake with arugula, lemon herb vinaigrette and tartar sauce. It was nice and light and I loved the tang from the tartar sauce.
I was really excited about my choice of the Ozark Mountain Grilled Smoked Pork Chop with apple sauce and appleJack demi. I struggle to cook pork at home because sometimes it comes out perfectly and other times it is overcooked. I now have a meat thermometer in the house so hopefully that will solve my cooking issues.
Henrietta’s Table’s pork chop was PERFECT!
The mashed potatoes made from locally grown potatoes were out of this world. Seriously, I have never had mashed potatoes as yummy as these. They were unbelievably creamy!!
While I was stuffed to the brim I had to try the fresh, warm, Blueberry Almond Crostata served with vanilla bean ice cream. I usually steer towards chocolate for dessert but I am so glad I chose this. The crust was so flaky and the vanilla bean ice cream was the perfect match to the tart blueberries.
I loved everything about Henrietta’s Table – the food and atmosphere were both comforting and cozy. I will be going back in the near future to check out the ever changing, seasonal menus!
Check out Henrietta’s Yard Sale on Sunday – Thursday offering two pre-fixed coursed menu options: 2 courses and 1 side for $32 OR 3 courses plus 1 side for $37. AWESOME!!
