Recently, we shared with you a preview of a new Kendall Square restaurant, Commonwealth Cambridge. This past weekend, we got to give the new spot a try, and are here to share a quick snapshot of the menu with you! As a new restaurant, there are always a few hiccups, but the one thing that's hardest to change is the food. I'm happy to report that almost every bite we tasted was quite good! The food was all well executed - meats cooked well, everything seasoned properly - and the serving pieces were clearly hand-picked. From mini Staub cocottes to cast iron pieces to stark white dinner plates, everything was different yet blended harmoniously to create a truly unique setting. Here's a snapshot of the bites we tried!
"Roll The Dice" Cocktail - Bartenders choice based off of your favorite type of spirit. This one had gin, lemon and bubbles, and was flavorful and refreshing.
Overall it was a lovely evening. I'm excited to go back in a couple of months to see even how much more they've grown, but right now I have a pretty good feeling about their long, successful future.
