Where I Go Out

At My Venues

$$$$, French, Modern, American, New American, Central Square
"The chef is the master of offal, as well as anything having to do with pig for that matter. I love that he sources ingredients as local as possible so the menu changes daily, but when he has the sweetbreads, I always make sure to get those."
Crispy fried pig tails
$$$$, French, Modern, American, New 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."
