Behind the Scenes

From My Menu

Chef Keith Pooler reviews Crispy fried pig tails at Craigie on Main
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Central Square
"Chef Tony Maws is the master of umami and crispy earthy richness with a crunch. Everyone goes to Craigie for the burger but I find the slow cooked, then fried, pigs tails to be the perfect bite of crunchy and chewy that you just don't find on many plates. I can eat one after another."
Chef Ming Tsai reviews Sweetbreads at Craigie on Main
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Central Square
"The chef is the master of offal, as well as anything having to do with pig for that matter. I love that he sources ingredients as local as possible so the menu changes daily, but when he has the sweetbreads, I always make sure to get those."
Chef Marco Suarez reviews Roasted grass-fed beef bone marrow at Craigie on Main
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Central Square
"Bone marrow from this menu is a real foodie treat and a definite must-have. It is served as the third course on their eight-course tasting menu."
Chef Jamie Bissonnette reviews Grilled Spanish octopus at Craigie on Main
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Central Square
"They always kill it with the octopus here. It's perfectly cooked and served with a great spiced artichoke sauce."
Chef Tony Maws reviews White chocolate-miso glaze and katsuoboshi-macadamia crumble donuts at Craigie on Main
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Central Square
"Check out our @craigieonmain @unionsquaredonuts collaboration available in Somerville, Brookline and Craigie brunch! White chocolate-miso glaze and katsuoboshi-macadamia crumble. Portion of the proceeds go to @nokidhungry #donuts #collaboration #somerville #cambridge #nokidhungry"
