Some great restaurants listed there. I hope they can replicate their best dishes again and again. Cafe Continental and it's sister are always up to that task. Any other thoughs?

Added to the list, for dinner only:

Casa de Lara (Fitchburg, aka the nice one)
Erin's Snug Irish Pub
Fresco
L'Etoile Restaurant
Ocean Grill

Also, the menus are getting filled in, finally. All I can say is "ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI" at Sushi Muramoto.

Couple days to go. I've got reservations at Fresco, and will probably hit Cocoliquot before they shutter the joint. If I can squeeze in a lunch at Muramoto, I'll be a happy feller.

Thanks for the link! I hadn't heard of this before but it sure sounds like a great deal. All you can eat sushi at Muramoto's sure is tempting. I'm going to have to try Quivey's Grove for lunch for the Kobe hamburger.

Muramoto's looking awfully tempting, but a couple others are also on my radar.

Now, Muramoto: what do they have for plum wines? Many? Few?

One, according to the website (Choya).

Hmmm. I'm pitching the idea to a friend who enjoys sushi and plum wine, but not so much sake. Hmm hmm.

The new column was entertainingly repulsive. Nice work.

Thanks again. I'd have settled for repulsively entertaining! I do enjoy this tiny self-promotion.

Hee! Say, I've read your blog a few times, but forget the link. Care to link me here or via email? I completely understand if you'd rather not in public.

I'm hungry for sushi right now. Did you know that the Willy St Co-op now makes it? It's yummy, too.

I think I recall reading that about the Co-op, yeah. I just had some from Takumi earlier this week. That's some good stuff.

We're eyeballing Harvest as a possible third stop during MRW. Might as well soak it all up while it's kinda cheap.

Lunch at Quivey's Grove on Sunday was great. The Kobe burger was excellent and is very close to the best burger I've ever had. They didn't skimp on anything and I was very full for the rest of the day. We had incredibly attentive service the entire time in spite of the large crowd. I'm trying to find time for Muramoto's for lunch this week and maybe try to get to Harvest for dinner.

Athena, have you called Muramoto yet? At this late point, I'm wondering if it's even possible to get in for either lunch OR dinner.

'course, I could also call the place myself. Hmph.
