Went in on New Year's Day and they had a really great brunch menu. The star of the day was the Oyster Shooter. A fresh oyster served with cocktail sauce and a shot of Tito's Vodka.
Yummy!

We chose this place when visiting Boston and trying to get a sense of a variety of neighborhoods and it worked perfectly as an introduction to the Back Bay. The food and service were very good and we enjoyed the ambiance and walking around the Back Bay after dinner.

Stopped in after shopping on Newbury for an early dinner. The restaurant wasn't open yet, so we ate in the bar. Delicious oysters and a good selection of wood-fired pizza. Friendly staff, and a lively bar.
