Craigie on Main

the menu of the day
Craigie on Main (the original location in Cambridge) has been around some time, but until very recently I didn't have the pleasure. The meal (and the accompaniment) totally lived up to the good reviews. Great, custom made drinks. Delicious, luxurious in its caloric intake, meal. Amazing atmosphere, with the bonus of open kitchen for your watching pleasure on entry. If I had to (i am trying here) find one constructive criticism, it is to say that the chef uses bacon/pork belly as a crutch in several items on the unpublished/daily menu; although I don't shy away from it whatsoever, I wasn't sure it was absolutely necessary in every dish. That said, the menu does change daily so this comment may or may not resonate on a regular basis.

bone marrow side

What I tried...

squid linguine amuse bouche (compliments of the kitchen)
duck confit atop a chip amuse bouche (compliments of the kitchen)
assiette of house made terrines
pork belly-wrapped harpooned swordfish

assiette of house made terrines....rabbit rillette, foe, and pork

I will definetly be back to sample more. Thanks to Mr. P for the treat!
