Russell House

One last recommendation for Cambridge: Russell House Tavern.

You're looking at tuna tartare, chick pea sandwiches, fresh oysters, and more -- all wonderfully balanced, beautifully presented, utterly delicious, and perfectly complemented with the draughts and cocktail menu.

Our brunch there was excellent, and I can't recommend it enough. Even if it's a little chilly, it's safe to sit outside (as we did) thanks to infrared lighting and high walls on three sides, but the restaurant  occupies extensive indoor space, as well. Smart to reserve during peak times, and to come hungry.

Enjoy!

Settling In

Settling in with swordfish bruschetta

What happened to May? I lost it in a whirlwind of Ikea bed set construction, kitchen organizing, and spreadsheeting. It's a transition -- we have moved to our new little town, and I started my new job a couple weeks ago. We're settling in piece by piece. It's great so far, and I expect that trend to continue.

I have a fair amount of backlog to share, but in the meantime, some shots from dinner last Friday night. We made swordfish bruschetta and moscow mules, lit the candles, and laid out the table linens for me to spill a bunch of diced grape tomatoes on. Pure magic, I tell you!

Life is a little complicated and a lot busy right now, so I'm still figuring out how to juggle this space with all the other things I want to do, but I'll be back for good soon!
