There are a few places in Boston that I’ve come to love and go back to year after year. While sometimes they disappoint and other times they wow me, I still go back — regardless. Some of my favorite restaurants in Boston are as follows: Hammersley Bistro, Davio’s, Avila, Mistral, Grill 23 & Bar, and Sunset Cantina/Brown Sugar (Boston University hangouts/guilty pleasures).
While I rarely branch out to unknown territory, I had to try Post 390 — after all of the odd ads found in Boston Mag/ Improper Bostonian as well as the buzz my friends/ co workers have made about the new restaurant. After a lovely yet warm/sleepy version of The Nutcracker with my mom on Thursday night, we made our way to Post for a late 10pm dinner at Post.
I didn’t think I’d ever be in agreement with the Boston Globe Food Reviews, but I have to admit, they’re quite spot on with their Post review.
Post’s perks: Location, vibrant bar scene, great late night spot, solid Roasted Lemon Chicken and Shrimp Linguine entrees
Post’s downfalls: Extremely rushed service, lackluster if that appetizers (i.e. steer clear of the Caesar Salads and French Onion Soup), buzzing environment that distracts from any chance of a “relaxing/enjoyable” meal
Overall, I’d suggest you go to Post if:
1) You’re on a first date … and not interested in hearing what your date has to say
2) You want a “quick bite” either before or after a night out — and not looking for a quiet ambiance
3) You’re 25-30, female, and looking for a young professional hookup
